These pages are dedicated to the memory of all the men from North Carolina that fought in the Civil War.
North Carolina Standard Raleigh June 18, 1862 Married, in this city on the evening of the 3rd inst., by William J. Eddus, Esq., Alexander W. Sanders of Louisiana to Martha Rayson of Wake. Died, in this city on the 11th inst., Miss Mary E. Little, eldest daughter of Sewell and Eliza Little, aged 19 years, 7 months and 10(?) days. The death of this estimable young lady has cast a gloom over the circle in which she moved—especially is her loss felt by those who knew her best. Possessing as she did all the qualities which adorn our common humanity she was known but to be admired and beloved. Beautiful and accomplished, she was a shining ornament in society; while as a Christian she was worthy of the term. She died the death of the righteous and her exit was calm “night dews fall not more gently to the earth” then she fell into the arms of her Heavenly Father. Her pure spirit has taken its flight to the bosom of God who gave it; may the sod bear gently upon the clay tenement that awaits the resurrection. Cut down in the gloom of womanhood, how appropriate are the lines by Mrs. Hemans: Leaves for their time to fall And flowers to wither at the North Wind’s breath And stars to set but all— Thou hast all seasons for thine own, oh death! A friend Died, in this city of brain fever on Wednesday, 11th (?) inst., Albert Dickinson of Franklin, N.C. in the 28th year of his age. He was a clever, good natured and industrious young man and leaves many friends to mourn his loss. Peace to his ashes. C. Died, near New Hill, Wake Co., N.C. on the evening of the 7th June, Angelina, infant daughter of M.M. and Lavinia Ann Sugg, aged 2 years, 4 months and 25 days. Dear little sister thy mother, father too Will often weep and think of you Your sister, too no doubt will weep While in your grave you sweetly sleep But while they weep they will look on high And hope to meet, sister, when they die They do not weep as those who have No hope of life beyond the grave. R.M.R. Died, at his residence in Alamance Co., near Company Shops, on the 31st May, Dr. Samuel E. Chapman, late of Newbern in the 55th year of his age. Dr. Chapman was for many years an eminent practitioner of medicine in the native town and gained for himself an enviable reputation as a physician, friend and citizen which even death cannot efface fro the memory of his friends. His health had been delicate for some years and he would greatly prefer to have found his last resting place in the soil of his own loved town but its capture and occupation by the Yankees forced him to leave with his family and settle in Alamance. He was buried in Salisbury among the relatives of the family. His interesting family mourns deeply the loss of an affectionate husband and father and the news of his death will send a thrill of sadness in the hearts of his old and valued friends. Peace to his ashes. P. North Carolina Standard Raleigh June 25, 1862 Died, in this county on Friday evening, 13th (?) inst., of typhoid fever, Miss Elizabeth W. Young in the 25th year of her age. All that devoted attention and medical aid could do was done; but the extreme violence of the attack rendered all impotent to seek the disease. The announcement of her death has fallen sadly upon many hearts and many a tear will fall in the memory of one so young, endowed with so many virtues. She made a profession of religion nearly six years ago and though she joined no church she lived the life of a Christian and the bed of death held no terrors for her. Her parents and two surviving brothers have sustained an irreparable loss. As a daughter, she was obedient, tender and reverent. As a sister she was devoted and affectionate, never so happy as when ministering to the happiness of those she loved. As a friend she was constant, always the same, true and faithful. The days of her pilgrimage have been short but they were greatly blessed and blessing. Long will her memory be fresh and green in the hearts of those who knew her and deeply do her friends sympathize with the bereaved family. Though we sincerely mourn for her, our loss is her gain. A Friend. Died, on the 30th May, at his residence in Wilkes Co., Rev. Tobias Long. This remarkable man lived more than three score and ten and died on his birthday, aged 77 years. His parents emigrated from Scotland about the year 1770. He joined the Baptist Church at Mulberry, Wilkes Co., N.C. and was licensed by his church 3rd April, 1816 as a preacher of the Gospel. He preached 46 years and during that period not a stain rested upon his character. He was a benevolent man, his house was always a home for the wayfarer and to him that would borrow he turned not away. The loss of this man will be felt throughout a large and extensive circle. His faith never forsook him. His hope was an external principle. When the spark of life departed, it flew Heavenward, and is rekindled on the altar of eternity. McG. North Carolina Standard Raleigh July 2, 1862 Married, in this city on Tuesday morning, 24th inst., by Rev. J.M. Atkinson, George W. Norwood to Mrs. Rebecca W. Marriott. Died, at Franklinton, N.C. on the 8th inst., in the 32nd year of her age, Mrs. Francis A. Shackelford, wife of Dr. Jno. Shackelford and daughter of the late Dr. Francis David, all of Trenton, Jones Co. Mrs. Shackelford was an excellent woman in all the relations of life and an exemplary Christian. She had been a worthy member of the M.E. Church for about 14 years and died in the hope of a better world. Her death is deeply lamented by her family and friends. Died at Montgomery County, N.C. after an illness of three weeks from typhoid fever, Miss Ann Eliza Christian in the 20th (?) year of her age, eldest daughter of Colonel Samuel H. and Eliza Christian. Thus the grim monster of death has laid his rude hand for the first time upon this family and nipped from its circle one of its choicest gems while in the bud. She was a gentle, amiable and lovely girl, an ornament in the household and the society in which she moved. The pride of her relations and the cherished friend of her school mates, just as the rays of daylight dawned upon the world the morning of the 18th June, God, who “doeth all things well” saw fit to remove her pure spirit from the tenement of clay while in the bloom of youth with all the promise of a long and happy life. We miss her. Oh! We miss her smile; the vacancy cannot be filled but t’was God who did it, let us not murmur but say “Thy will be done”. The interest she manifested in religion before her illness gave her friends the most conclusive evidence that she was ready for her Savior in that “House not made with earth, eternal in the Heavens”. The writer watched by her bedside the night before her death and can truly say: Dearest cousin thou has left us, Here thy loss we deeply feel, But t’was God who has bereft us, He can all our sorrows heal. M……. North Carolina Standard Raleigh July 9, 1862 Lines on the Death of Mrs. Julia A. Murphy ‘Tis said to hear that thou art gone And left dear ones behind to mourn Oh, thou hast joined the angel train To sing with them their heavenly strain. But we cannot suppress the tear We weep for one we held so dear Who from our fond embrace is torn To live in Heaven, thy happy home We know thy spirit is too pure To dwell on earth; they conflict’s o’er Our Father calling, child come on high And live with me above the sky. Farewell! Farewell! Yes, we must part Yet sorely crushed is this sad breast We’ll meet again in Heaven above To part no more with those we love. Married, in Wilmington on the 1st inst., by Rev. J.I. Pritchard, William M. Poisson to Mary Frances, daughter of Alfred Alderman, Esq. Died, in this city on Tuesday, 1st inst., Charles Edward, son of J.L. and E.C. Garrett(?), one month, three days. Died, after a brief illness of only eight hours on the 30th June, near Trinity College, Randolph County, of paralysis, Elizabeth Blair, consort of John Blair, deceased, in the 67th (?) 87th (?) year of her age. She was a consistent member of the Society of Friends and beloved by all who knew her for her benevolence and disinterested kindness. Lines affectionately written upon the death of Miss Betty Little who died in Raleigh on the 11th June, 1852 Bettie, dear, now thou art gone No more thou wilt suffer pain, Though thou hast left me here alone I hope we will meet again. Not in this world of sorrow Not on these plains of woe But in the vale of glory Where streams of pleasure flow. Not where earth’s loveliest flowers Are culled by death’s rude hand, But in the heavenly bowers Where you, an angel, stand. Not where the din of war is heard Nor where the loud cannon’s roar, But where the banner of our Lord Will e’er in triumph soar. We have not met together often And parted but to weep, Now dear one my tears will soften The sod ‘neath which you sleep. I loved thee with affection true Still love my heart doth feel, Full well I know you loved me too Though dead you love me still. On the pages of my memory Thine image liveth yet, That pleasant smile, that voice so sweet Oh how can I forget. I think of thee when day is done When vesper beams have fled, And oft in solitude I mourn For thee, since thou art dead. Weep not for her, ye parents dear Let no tears dim your eyes, For if the flower has faded here, It blooms beyond the skies. Behold your angel child up there An angel ‘mid the rest, With a crown upon her forehead Her head on Jesus’ breast. Weep not for her, heart broken friend Though death your hopes have riven, God will the same good angels send And take you home to heaven. There we will meet, dear Bettie Whose death we must deplore, Around God’s throne in glory We will meet to part no more. She was too sweet by far for them To whom she had been given, God’s angels came and took the gem And carried it to Heaven. Bialto, Chatham County, N.C. June 24, 1862 Corrine F. Long North Carolina Standard Raleigh July 16, 1862 Died, in this city on Monday last, Mrs. Mary White, relict of William White, deceased, in the 82nd (?) year of her age. She had been a consistent member of the Presbyterian Church for about forty years. Died, in this city on Thursday last, Mrs. Miriam B. Allen, wife of Col. C.H. Allen, in the 38th year of her age. Mrs. Allen was a quiet, unobtrusive Christian, a kind neighbor, and a most devoted wife and mother. She had been an acceptable member of the M.E. Church for a number of years. Her sorrowing husband and children mourn their loss but they hope to meet her in a better world. Died, in this city on the 9th July, Lillie Ann Victoria Womble, infant daughter of William T. and Susan Womble, aged 13 months, 13 days. One of our oldest and most respected citizens, Dabney Cosbey, Esq., expired at his residence in this city on Tuesday last aged 84 years. He was buried with Masonic honors. His funeral sermon was preached by Rev. J.M. Atkinson of the Presbyterian Church. Mr. Cosbey was a native of Virginia and an architect and master builder. Many monuments of his skill and industry may be seen in Virginia and in this state. More than sixty years ago, Mr. Cosbey, when a young man, worked on the University of Virginia under the direction of Mr. Jefferson. We have often heard him speak of his conversations with that illustrious man and of the information he received from him on architecture and the art of making brick. Mr. Cosbey leaves numerous descendants in Virginia and this state. A few months since he had ten grandsons in the Confederate service in Virginia. We learn that James M. Fleming, Esq., of this city expired at his residence in Rolesville in this county on Friday last of typhoid fever. Mr. Fleming was one of our most useful citizens. He was about 55 years old. A tribute of respect was paid at Bellevoir, N.C. on July 2, 1862 by the Taylor Lodge #144, to their Worshipful Master, brother T.M. Mann T. B. Farrer M.T. Baldwin L.F. Baldwin A tribute of respect was paid by the Raleigh Typographical Society on May 10 regarding the death of James R. Kilkelly, through his death, the association has lost a useful member of the society whose memory will be long cherished for his uprightness as a man and his zeal as a printer. John R. Bunting J.R. Neathery M.V.B. Gilbert Married, in this county on the 9th inst., by Haywood Griffin, Esq., Caleb Perry of Johnston Co., to Sarah Powell of Wake. Died, in this city on Thursday last, Pattie, only child of Lewis W. Peek, Esq., aged about 7 years. She was a lovely, beautiful child. Died, at his residence near Fairfield, Hyde Co., on June 23, David Carter, Esq., in the 62nd year of his age. The deceased was a representative man of his age; he had acquired an ample competency of this world’s goods which he bestowed with a liberal hand upon the poor; his house was the home of hospitality; the stranger never knocked at his door in vain; and to those who acquired his aid, his hand was always open. Perhaps no other man has done so much to develop the resources of his native county. The deceased represented Hyde County and Beaufort County in the Senate of N.C. at the session of 1846 and 1847. He had no political aspirations and would never afterwards suffer his name to be used in connection with public matters. He belonged to that class of our citizenry known as the old Union Party but when Lincoln issued his memorable proclamation, he equipped three of his sons and sent them to the field and the gallant charge made by Captain Carter and his company of the 4th Regiment before Richmond shows how well they discharged their duty. The deceased was a firm friend, a kind husband, an indulgent parent, and a consistent Christian. He leaves a large family and hundreds of friends in this state and Virginia to mourn his loss but his upright life and quiet death (for he died as calmly as a child) leads us to hope that our loss is his eternal gain. W.S.C. North Carolina Standard Raleigh July 23, 1862 Died, in this city on the 16th inst., Agata Rosemond, infant daughter of John and Sara Rosemond, aged 11 days. Died, in Pittsborough, Monday, 14th inst., William Thomas, infant son of John W. Thomas, nearly four months old. How soon, dear babe, thou hast been snatched from the fond embrace of thy affectionate parent. Death has only removed thee from earth to Heaven to be transplanted in a richer and more congenial soil and where thou will bloom and flourish in all the beauty and grandeur of a glorified seraph forever. Married, on Sunday, 15th July near Eagle Rock, by William H. Hood, Esq., Moses Alpheus Ethsidus and Elizabeth, daughter of Benjamin Folson, Esq., all of Wake. Married, on the 9th inst., by S. Kounce, Esq., Lt. S.S. Carter of Morehead, Nethercut’s Partisan Rangers, to Sallie A. Howland. Died, at his residence in this county on Tuesday last J.J. Lee, about 45 years. The deceased was among the most worthy and useful of our citizens. He died in the full hope of a better life. He will be greatly missed by his friends and neighbors. Died, on Thursday, 19th ult., at his residence in Graham, Alamance Co., Elijah Clark of Newbert, in the 88th year of his age. He was a member of the Newbern Baptist Church for 55 years. Died, at Durham, Orange Co., N.C. at the residence of R.F. Morris, on the 2nd July, after a short illness, Thomas Woods, in the 80th year of his age. The deceased had been a strict member of the M.E. Church for the rise of sixty years. Mr. Woods leaves a wife and two children to mourn their loss; but their loss is his eternal gain. “Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord.” Died, on the 10th inst., Lucy A.E. Mickey, daughter of William A. and Martha G. Mickey, aged 3 years, 2 months and 5 days. She had diphtheria and was sick just three weeks; she was a sweet, interesting child, doted on by her parents, grandparents and especially by an aunt and uncle who resided in the same house. We can scarcely realize that we will see little Lucy no more; that her sweet little voice will be heard no more on earth; but it is so and we must submit. Dear little child, thy mother, father too, Will often weep and think of you Your brother, too, no doubt will weep While in your grave you gently sleep. But while they weep they will look on high And hope to meet you when they die They do not weep as those who have No hope of life beyond the grave Sallie North Carolina Standard Raleigh July 30, 1862 The last Greensboro Patriot contained a deserved tribute to Julius L. Gorrell, Esq., of Guilford, who died in Greensborough on Thursday night, 17th inst., after a brief illness. Mr. Gorrell was a member of the House of Commons in the last legislature and was a candidate for re-election. He was a young man of education and promise greatly respected by all who knew him and especially by the people of Guilford. This is the second son whom Ralph Gorrell, Esq., has recently lost. A younger brother of Julius, Captain Henry C. Gorrell, fell in battle near Richmond on 21st June while bravely leading his men to the charge. Married, in the county on the 16th inst., by C.H. Horton(?), Esq., Hiram Marriott of Sampson Co., to Miss Luc - - a Underwood of Wake co., both deaf and dumb. A tribute of respect was paid by the Rock Rest Lodge #161, Chatham Co., N.C. on July 12: Whereas, it has pleased Almighty God to take from our midst and from his family and a large circle of friends and relatives our much esteemed brother and senior warden the devoted companion and father and kind and useful neighbor William R. West, we pay this tribute of respect. The last Greensboro Patriot contains a deserved tribute to Julius L. Gorrell, Esq., of Guilford who died in Greensborough on Thursday, 17th inst., after a brief illness. He was a member of the House of Commons in the last legislature and was a candidate for re-election. He was a young man of education and promise and greatly respected by all who knew him and especially the people of Guilford. This is the second son whom Ralph Gorrell, Esq., has recently lost. A younger brother of Julius, Captain Henry C. Gorrell fell in battle near Richmond on the 21st June while bravely leading his men to the charge. North Carolina Standard Raleigh August 6, 1862 A tribute of respect was paid by Alamance Lodge #133 on the 26th July to Dr. D.M. Jordan. North Carolina Standard Raleigh August 13, 1862 We regret to learn, says the Tarboro, N.C. Southerner, that Dr. John A. Gallagher, recently of Washington, died in Wilson on Wednesday last. He was attending to the hospital in that town and while operating on a patient he pricked his finger with a dissecting needle which ultimately caused his death after intense suffering. He was about thirty years of age and leaves a wife and one children. Died, at her residence in Granville Co., on the 17th July, Mrs. Mary Fleming, in the 83rd year of her age, leaving a large concourse of children, grandchildren and friends to mourn their loss. She was old and very feeble, entirely helpless. For five long, weary years she had not walked a step and scarcely moved on her couch without assistance. One arm and hand were paralyzed, and her sufferings during the time have been acute. Though she never made any public profession of faith, she often times expressed a longing to die and desire to be with those who have gone before. Often when her mind was wandering she would call her brothers and parents who have been dead a great many years. But she is gone! No more will we witness her sufferings which it was so painful to see and yet impossible to allay; but we trust she is now basking in the sunlight of her Savior’s love where there is no more parting and no more death and where it is eternal peace forever. There may you calmly rest dear old grandparent until all those who loved you on earth are called away and may you bid them welcome to Heaven there to spend blessed eternity. There is a world above Where parting is unknown A whole eternity of love Formed for the good alone Married, in this city on July 25, by William J. Eddins, Esq., W.P. Tennison of Buncombe to Rebecca Medlin of Wake. Died, in Gaston Co., N.C., on the 28th July, of fever, Mr. Powell Froniberger Died, at Mt. Sterling, Iredell Co., on the 12th July, Margaret, youngest daughter of Hon. R.M. Pearson aged 12 years, 4 months. She was a sweet, lovely child. Her life was one of innocence and love and she passed away As a sweet flower that scents the morn But withers in the rising day. North Carolina Standard Raleigh August 20, 1862 We regret to learn from the Fayetteville Observer just before going to press that Hon. Warren Winslow died at Fayettesville on Sunday last. He was in feeble health for some time. Married, in this city on the 13th inst., by M.H. Brown, Esq., William H. Bennett to Louisa Lumbley. Also on the 14th inst., by the same, William R. Reasley(?) Beasley(?) to Francis Lassiter, all of Wake Co. Died, at his residence in Wake Co., on Thursday, 7th inst., after a short illness, Seth H. Jones, in the 36th year of his life. He was possessed of many excellent qualities which much endeared him to his family and friends. Died, in this city on the 14th inst., William Thomas, infant son of C.M. and Martha Hood, aged 2 years, 10 months and 9 days. Died, near New Hill, Wake Co., on the 6th August, Abner Lassley(?), aged 44. He leaves a wife and three children and an aged mother, brothers and sisters together with many friends and relatives and a most excellent neighbor and worthy patriotic citizens. If he had an enemy it was without cause—and above all, he died a Christian. Died, at Barclayville, Harnett Co., on the 7th inst., Mrs. Mildred Barclay, aged 84(?). Mrs. Barclay was for more than forty years the welcome resting place for the weary traveler. She was truly an excellent woman. Thousands will remember her kind attention to their wants and her unwearied efforts to render their sojourn with her pleasant and agreeable. She was one of the best of neighbors. She has descended into the grave full of years, regretted and mourned by her family and many friends. The writer of this is not informed as to her spiritual condition during the last illness that preceded her death; but it may be safely concluded that such a woman lived with reference to the great change that awaits us all and that she had made the needful preparations for her departure. Tribute of Respect Yes, the “Golden bowl is broken, the silver cord is loosed” that bound our friend and sister Eulalian to her end—Rebecca J. Cardwell, who died on July 30 in the 16th year of her age. Yes, the sun of her life has sunk behind the western horizon, never again to shine forth to the regret of all to whom she endeared herself during her short stay of a few months at college. As a pupil she was obedient and studious, as a friend faithful and gentle. So young, so lovely, why was she called away? Each heart re-echoes the answer—it was His will. We tender our heart felt sympathy to her relatives and friends and hope that this stroke may be softened by the hand of God. B. Balsly A. Long M. Davis S. Sanders Tribute of Respect It has become our painful duty to record the death of our much beloved friend Lucie E. Little, who died at Tarboro on the 14th June. She was a bright example of Christian piety while living and is no doubt resting in her Savior’s arms. During her connection with the Greensboro Female College she became a zealous and efficient member of the “Eulalian Literary Society” and was chosen president of same and filled the office with dignity and competency. Little did we dream as she read her sweet, sad farewell before the graduating class of 1860 that it would be an eternal farewell. Death claimed the fair one for its own. Departed this life at Piedmont Springs in Burke Co., on the (date illegible) day of August, Mrs. Mary Perkins, wife of Robert C. Perkins, Esq., in the 25th year of her age. She was a communicant of the Protestant Episcopal Church and she has left behind her a devoted husband and a large number of friends to mourn her early departure. Died, on the 3rd inst., in Chatham Co., Mrs. Catherine McIntyre, the amiable consort of Archibald McIntyre, aged 39(?) years; leaving a disconsolate husband, four children and many friends and relatives to mourn their loss. Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord. Died, in Newbern, on Wednesday, 30th July, Mary Benjamin Justice, wife of Alexander Justice and daughter of Benjamin S. and Sarah G. Tillman, in the 36th year of her age. Died, in this city, on the 19th inst., at his residence, A.J. Crocker in the 41st year of his age. The deceased had been for a long time a great sufferer but he bore his sufferings with a Christian spirit until God in his goodness called him home to Him where suffering is no more. He had been for several years a consistent member of the Baptist Church. He was a kind and affectionate husband, an indulgent father, and a good neighbor. He leaves a wife, six children and a vast number of friends and relatives to mourn their loss but their loss is his eternal gain. May God be with them to comfort them in their sad bereavement. Friend after friend departs Who has not lost a friend ……….. A Friend Died, in his residence near Columbia, Arkansas in July last, Leonard R. Royster, son of David and Susan Royster of this city, aged 47 years, leaving a devoted wife and three children to mourn their loss. He had been a consistent member of the M.E. Church for 13(?) years. Died, in Wake County on the 21st July, John S. Johnson, Esq., in the 34th year of his age. He was a kind and affectionate husband and father, a useful citizen, and beloved by all who knew him. He leaves an affectionate wife and five children to mourn their loss. Few citizens in his neighborhood would be more missed. He died in the hope of a better world. S.A.H. Died, in this city on the 19th inst., John Edward, infant son of Patrick and Elizabeth McGowan, aged six weeks.

Vestal of Randolph Co., aged 18 years, 7 months and 8 days. He was an industrious young man of steady habits, and his many friends deplore the accident that resulted in his untimely death. A.H.M. Addendum: Fayetteville Observer, Monday, July 7, 1862 Died, on Wednesday last, after an illness of a few hours, Mary Ella, infant daughter of C.M. and E.E. Vanosdell, aged 15 months. In the morning the child was radiant with health and beauty; in the evening it was cut down as a flower of the field. So has passed away the “Child Angel” from the fond embrace of many loving hearts. Died, in Montgomery Co., on the 28th June, after an illness of several weeks, of apoplexy, Angus Martin, Esq., a highly respectable citizen. Died, in Richmond Co., June 25(?) 26(?), Miss Saran Margaret McMillan, in the 22nd year of her age.

Her gentle manners and pleasing personal appearance were her least excellences, for her pure character was that which forms the loving daughter and sister, the fond and wise mother, the devoted and sympathizing wife, and the calm, quiet, faithful and trusting Christian. She was an acceptable member of the Methodist Church. She left three children, an affectionate husband, with many relatives to mourn their irreparable loss. Fayetteville Observer, Monday, July 21, 1862 Died, on the 15th inst., at Little Rockfish, of pulmonary disease, in the 54th year of his age, Rev. George Benton, who had been Rector of the Christ Church at that place for 17 years. Mr. Benton graduated with distinction at Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut, in 1833. He then entered the Theological Seminary at New York and graduated in 1836. He was immediately sent on a mission to Crete, with the privilege of remaining four months at Athens, to acquire a more perfect knowledge of the modern Greek language. He then proceeded on to Crete, remaining there seven years. On his return to this country, he was called to the Parish at Rockfish, where he has spent a useful and laborious life. He was a ripe scholar and a Christian gentleman—and his life has closed just in the manner always desired by him. His death was after the ordinary manner of men, having in it nothing extraordinary, save an extraordinary piety, and the manifestation of God’s infinite and miraculous mercy. His speech and his understanding were preserved to the latest hours of his life. He died the death of the righteous, free from sin (through Christ), free from shame, and by God’s mercy, comparatively free from pain. Died, in Moore County, on the 6th inst., Mrs. Nancy Campbell, wife of Daniel Campbell, Sr., in her 81st year. Died, in Robeson Co., on the 6th inst., James D.

This is the third time, within the space of a few years, in which the Angel of Death has left wailing and sorrowing in the family of Mrs. McQueen. First the husband and father, in the full vigor of ripened manhood, was stricken down. Next the eldest son, just as he was about measurably to fill to his mother and fatherless sisters and brothers as the head of the family the place vacated by the father.
