These pages are dedicated to the memory of all the men from North Carolina that fought in the Civil War.
North Carolina Standard Raleigh November 9, 1864 Died, at Mt. Airy, N.C., 29th Oct., little Carrie, infant daughter of S.L. and M.C. Gilmer. North Carolina Standard Raleigh October 5, 1864 James M. Bullock, for many years a representative of the County of Granville in the legislature was found dead on the old track of the Clarksville Railroad on 28th September. The cause of his death is not known (Later in the same issue)……It appears that James Bullock, Esq., whose death was mentioned above, was murdered. He was shot through the head by some unknown; his watch was taken and his money gone. Died, at Rockingham County, on the 5th (?) 6th (?) September, Mrs. Catharine Reid, wife of Hugh K. Reid, Esq., and daughter of Hon. Calvin Graves, aged 36. We learn that on Saturday last about 5:00 Nelson Lew, who lives in this county between Lilesville and Grassy Island, had three boys—aged 17, 14 and 7—killed from the effects of lightening. It appears that at the time they wee killed, no rain had fallen immediately in their neighborhood and that two of the children were sitting in the door, watching the play of lightening as the clouds were passing with the third lying behind them on the floor near the door. Their mother was somewhere else in the house. She was considerably shocked by the stroke that killed her children. When she recovered, her first thought was her children and when she went to look after them, she saw the one who had been lying on the floor still in that position with his clothes on fire. She put the fire out and found him dead. The other two children had fallen from the door outside—one lying on his face, the other on his side and both dead. Wasdesborough Argus Married, at the residence of the bride’s mother, at Alamance Co., on the 28th September, by Rev. Mr. Barnes, Joseph I. Lee, of Raleigh and Miss A.F. Odom of Alamance. Died, on the 1st inst., at Franklin co., Omega H. Foster. His many virtues and noble qualities of mind and heart endeared him to all who knew him. North Carolina Standard Raleigh October 12, 1864 The Yellow Fever is said to be raging in Newbern. We regret to learn that James W. Bryan, Esq., and wife have fallen victim to it. Married, in the city, on the 4th inst., at the residence of the bride’s father, Alfred S. Thompson to Anna B. Christopher, second daughter of J.J. Christopher, Esq., all of this city. Died, at his residence in Franklin Co., 14th last September, J.B. Tucker, in the 53rd year of his age. For many years he had been a deacon in the Baptist Church and lived a life truly consistent with his holy profession. He leaves a wife and several children and many friends to mourn their loss. J.A.E. Died, at Harnett Co., Saturday, 24th September, Mrs. Mary Byrd, wife of Richard Byrd, Esq., in the 64th year of her age. She was a kind mother and an obedient wife. She leaves a husband and ten children to mourn their loss, the youngest of whom is near grown and the mother being the first who has departed this life in the family. Her children were all present with their father and accompanied the deceased on to the tomb. Deep for the dead the grief must be Who ne’er gave cause to mourn before. North Carolina Standard Raleigh October 19, 1864 We are pained to announce the death of the Hon. John r. Donnell, formerly of Newbern which took place at his residence in this city on Saturday morning last. Judge Donnell had been in feeble health for some time past and his decline was no doubt accelerated by the condition of the country which had forced him from his home in Newbern. He was elected by the General Assembly when quite a young man, solicitor for the Lenoir Judicial Circuit and was afterwards elected judge of the Superior Courts of law and equity. For many years past he has given his attention to his firm and to the management of his large estates. He was a man of inflexible integrity, or pure morals, just in his dealings, and modest and affable in his manner—in a word, he was an enlightened gentleman and felt the measure of his duties as a member of society and as a citizen. He has survived many of his contemporaries who entered with him in the activities of life during the War of 1812. Married, on the 13th isn’t., by Haywood Griffis, Esq., at the residence of Leroy Jordan, Caswell Andrews to Elizabeth Allen all of Wake Co. North Carolina Standard Raleigh October 19, 1864 Married, on the 5th inst., by Rev. James B. Long, at the residence of the bride’s father, Wesley Upchurch to Miss S.A. Goodwin, all of Chatham Co. Married, on the 8th inst., by Rev. James B. Long, at the residence of the bride’s mother, Richard Evans to Bettie Lee, all of Wake Co. Married, on the 8th inst., by Jas. Brasenton, Esq., at the residence of the bride’s father, Samuel Patterson to Mary Womble, all of Chatham Co. North Carolina Standard Raleigh October 26, 1864 Died, at her residence in the city of Raleigh, Mrs. Mary Shepard, on the 12th October, widow of the late William Shepard in the 93rd year of her age. She was the daughter of Frederick Blount of eastern Carolina and was born on the 3rd June, 1772 at “Elmwood” or “The Elm” in Pasquotank Co., N.C., on her ancestral property. Her mother, whose maiden name was Mary Williams and whose marriage to Frederick Blount was celebrated on the 5th April, 1769, had the mien and carriage of a high bred lady and indulged in the most lavish hospitality, (as the author of these lines was informed by Governor Iredell), perhaps more than any one lady in Carolina anterior to the American Revolution and possessed the manners that would adorn a cottage or a palace. Her father, Frederick Blount, was a lawyer and polished gentleman of the old Carolina school, distinguished for his virtues and an intimate friend of the English Colonial Governor Tryon and when on a visit to England had the distinguished honor of receiving from George III a present now in the possession of his grandson, the author of these lines; and who has a unique piece of furniture brought over by the father of this Frederick when returning from a visit to the mother country. This Frederic sustained the constitutional government of his country in principle and action, was of a daring and dashing courage and unimpeachable integrity but died before the revolution broke out. By marriage, his fortune was such as to enable him to exhibit a most generous hospitality. His house was the center of the highest culture and intelligence of the times. In this atmosphere was the young life of the deceased molded. There being only two children and her sister Sarah Blount died at a very early age, she became the heiress to this fortune which was afterwards much increased by the death of a relative— a nephew of the half blood whose name was Samuel (who was also the nephew of the present James Chowan one of the wealthiest individuals in Carolina), the son of John Swan and Penelope Johnson who intermarried on the 4th January, 1790. Samuel was born 30th November, 1791 and died on the 11th February, 1796 leaving a large estate to the present deceased who nearly two years previous on the 12th May, 1794, was married to Wm. Shepard, a Federalist in opinion and by profession a planter and merchant in Newbern where they resided after their marriage at “Elmwood”. Wm. Shepard possessed an uncommon financial ability and but for an impediment in speech would have entered public life to which he was much solicited. He was the uncle of the Biddles of Pennsylvania – Nicholas, Richard, and William and others and of James Biddle – all of whom were very eminent and of the late James Biddle, the celebrated McDuffie, of South Carolina in his life of the same remarked “he was an honor to his country, and has immortalized his name.” Indeed, the character of Mrs. Shepard must have been very decided and it is said she could influence her husband to a great degree who himself was a man of singular powers of mind. True and faithful she was in all the varied responsibilities of life. As a wife, mother, friend, she was an example for imitation. For a long period she had been a member of the Episcopal Church. Her charity was boundless. Residing in Newbern, she became popular by her refinement and courtesies and occupied a distinguished position. Some eight or ten children were born to them. But severe dispensations awaited her patience and temper. Not one death but man occurred in quick succession and nature’s order reversed. Mrs. Shepard at her death was surrounded by but few of her immediate descendents. Fro several years previous to 1838, the date of the removal of Mr. Shepard from Newbern to Raleigh, she had ceased to entertain much and never entertained afterwards to the extent of her former days. Her mind was strong and powerful as ever but her physical frame for the past two years before her death gradually underwent a change. Her health had been very feeble for the several months previous to her death. Her mind, originally strong and powerful, was retained to the last unimpaired. Her faculties were indeed remarkable for one of her age. She bore meekly her sickness soothed by all the attentions that dutiful and affected relatives could bestow. After having for nearly fifty years been a member of the Episcopal Church, on the 12th October, 1864, her spirit was borne by the angels to the paradise of God and on the 16th October all that was mortal of her nature was placed beside the remains of one to whom she was attached in life by the strongest ties of affection. Died, at the residence of his son Dr. W.C. LeMay in the town of Monticello, Mississipi, Rev. John Peace LeMay, aged 71 years, 5 months and 10 days. The deceased was a native of Granville Co., N.C. where he lived up to the year 1842 when he emigrated to Marshall Co., Mississippi. In early life he embraced religion and attached himself to the Christian Church and after becoming an elder in that church exercised for many years the function of that office at a church known by the name of Pope’s Chapel. He died as he had lived in the full faith of the doctrines of his church. He was generally beloved by all who knew him and has passed away ripe in years and in the hope of a future that will have no grief. Died, in Fayetteville on Saturday, 15th inst., in the 70th year of his age, Gordon Deming, Esq., formerly for many years Chairman of the County Court and Chairman of the Committee of Finance of that county.

Harrison to Ella L., only daughter of J.M. Perkinson, Esq., formerly of this city. The funeral of the late Daniel Hilton of Kinston will take place Tuesday, 25th Oct., at the Presbyterian Church, at 10:00 am. The Rev. A.D. Blackwood will preach a Masonic funeral on the 5th Sabbath of the present month of I. Matthews at the late residence of said Matthews, 7 miles northwest or Raleigh. Masons are invited by the widow to attend October 17, 1864 Among the old citizens of Newbern who have fallen victim to the Yellow Fever that is now raging in all its fury in Newbern, Beaufort and Morehead City our correspondent gives the names of James Ward, Isaac Ramsey, John F. Jones and Henry Clay Jones. The latter is a well known lawyer in Newbern. He left that place on its occupation by the enemy and a year or two returned under disreputable circumstances, it is said, since which time he has been practicing Yankee law before the Yankee provost courts. Confederate North Carolina Standard Raleigh November 2, 1864 Lines on the death of Mrs. C.B. Clarke She’s gone; and beckons us to come; She’s passed from earth away An angel round His burning throne She lives in endless day. Though called so suddenly to go; Her lamp is burning bright; And ere one day had run its course The spirit took its flight. We part! But Oh! ‘Tis pain to part: Her place, oh who can fill? But memory kindly keeps for us Her voice and image still. And other miss thee too, dear friend; How oft thy feet have trod The pathway to the soldier’s home, To point his soul to God. Farwell! We will meet again. I hear Thy last kind words, farewell! We’ll meet thee in a happier sphere Where saints and angels dwell. H. Raleigh, October 26, 1861 Died, very suddenly of congestive cold, at his residence in Kinston, Lenoir Co., N.C., on the 22nd October, Daniel Hilton, son of William and Susan Hilton, aged 42 years, 2 months and 11 days. The deceased was a native of England but removed with his father to this country when only about 8 years of age. For the last 13 years he has resided in Kinston where he was most favorably known for the geniality of his temperament and the honest industry of his character. He was one of the first mechanics and architects in the South and under his own supervision nearly every bridge on the Atlantic Railroad between the towns of Goldsboro’ and Newbern was erected; and besides he has raised more lasting monuments of his enterprise in other and more distant locals. His worth and ability made him an ornament to the town of which he was so long a resident and the kindness of his deportment and native gentility of character enhanced his great value. He leaves a dear wife and one little boy to mourn the loss with relatives and friends. C.D.C. Died, in this city on Friday night last, Mrs. M.K. Hoyt, relict of the late James E. Hoyt, formerly of Washington, N.C. Died, in this city on Friday last, Cantor Branton, second son of Carter B. and Marguerite F. Harrison, aged 17 months and 12 days. North Carolina Standard Raleigh November 9, 1864 Died, in this city, on Tuesday evening, Nov. 1, Lizzie Brandon, only daughter of Hon. D.M. Barringer, aged 13 years, 7 months and 8 days. Died, in this city on Tuesday morning, Oct. 25, Mrs. Susan Royster, consort of David Royster, aged 85. She was the daughter of Elisha Sims, deceased, of Warren Co., N.C. Sixty two years ago she came to Raleigh s a bride. All around the house she occupied were wild woods and fields. Few families were then living in the place—only one name is left who was here when she came and since that time she has never moved. Her funeral was preached in the same room she entered as a bride. In the 62 years of her married life, she never left her home without her husband and children and never more than a week at a time and in that long period she and her husband were never separated a week at one time until her death. The fell destroyer took away from the old man the “life of his eyes” and left him alone. She has left to mourn their loss eight children, 44 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren, all of whom except three grandchildren reside in this city. Four children and 20 grandchildren have “gone before”. One from beyond the Mississippi; one from the enemy’s land, the gory field of Gettysburg and two from dreary hospitals in Virginia. The others all sleep in the burying grounds of this city. Mrs. Royster was of a most cheerful disposition even while drawing near the end of her life and suffering much pain. During the last days of her life her mind wandered from the present back to the scenes of her early life and she spoke of events of childhood and the friends of her youth as if they were actually before her eyes. She was for more than forty years a consistent member of the Baptist Church and leaves to her family her example of patience, resignation and piety. Married, in this city on the evening of the 3rd inst., by Rev. Wm. E. Pell, Oscar M. Neal of Company I, 3rd N.C. Cavalry to Catharine Isabella McGowan, daughter of Patrick McGowan, Esq. Died, Oct. 29 near Pekin, Montgomery Co., N.C., in the 57th year of his age, James Meacham, after a long and painful attack of rheumatism and consumption.

Beves, son of Alsey and C. Beves of this city, aged 26 years, 7 months and 15 days. His mangled and severed remains were conveyed to Raleigh and interred in the city cemetery. But recently he had written to his parents informing them of his intention to spend the Christmas holidays with them; in a few days they received the mournful intelligence of his death. North Carolina Standard Raleigh December 14, 1864 Died, in this city on Sunday morning last, after a lingering illness, S.K. Jones, printer, in the 35th year of his age. The death of this kind hearted, upright, honest man is much lamented. No one was ever more attentive or industrious in business or more thoughtful then he was for his family or more kind. He leaves a widow and four children and many friends to grieve for his departure. His funeral was largely attended by the printers of Raleigh and by others who bear testimony to his worth. North Carolina Standard Raleigh December 21, 1864 We regret to announce the death of Thomas J. Bright, Esq., of Montgomery Co., which occurred quite suddenly a few days ago in Randolph where he had gone for a physician to attend his wife. He was a gentleman of intelligence and spotless character. He was a county surveyor and chairman of the court of Montgomery at the time of his death. Married, in Petersburg, Va., on the 7th December, by Rev. C.J. Gibson, J. Charles Smith to Laura A. Davis, all of that city. Married, in Petersburg, Va., on the 14th inst., by Rev.

He was ill about thirty days and was carefully attended to. He bore his afflictions with great patience and resignation. North Carolina Standard Raleigh January 4, 1865 Died, in Wake County, on the 31st October, Edmund Cox, aged 70 years, one month, 16 days. He leaves a widow and three children to mourn his loss but we sorrow not as those who have no hope for our loss is his eternal gain. He had been a member of the Methodist Church at Buckthorn, Chatham Co., for more than thirty years. He lived as an honest Christian and often expressed a willingness to die. Married, on the 29th December by Rev. Wm. E. Pell, at the residence of the bride’s father, R.Y. Lackie, 23rd S.C. Regiment, Company F, to Miss S.F., eldest daughter of Rev. William N.

Died, at his residence in Guilford Co., on the 13th December last, after a long and painful illness, Peter Rehsell in the 53rd year of his age. The deceased was a consistent member of the Lutheran Church about ten years and was loved by all who knew him. He bore his sickness with much fortitude, resigned to the will of God. He leaves a wife and ten children to mourn the loss of a kind father and loving husband. His eldest son is in the service of his country. J.C.B. North Carolina Standard Raleigh Jan. 18, 1865 Married, in Onslow Co., N.C., on the 22nd December, by Rev. D.B. Nicholson, Rev. W. Alexander Smith of the N.C. Annual Conference to Sarah S. Costin, daughter of John A. Costin. Susannah Eliza Stewart was born in Iredell County on Aug. 31, 1820. When about 14 years of age she lost her mother and the care of the household and her younger sisters devolved upon her. Her intellectual endowments were of the highest order and through the agency of her brother she obtained a finished education studying the ancient classics under H.R. Hall. As a writer she attained a good deal of excellence both in prose and in poetry. In her life she engaged in the business of education, teaching first in North Carolina and later in South Carolina. In 1854 she went to Alabama and resumed the business of teaching. As a teacher she was devoted and highly successful. In 1858 she made a profession of religion and connected herself to the M.E. Church. In 1859 she was married to W.B. Robins of Marshall Co., Alabama. She died in Blount County, Alabama September 17, 1864. J.C.S. Married, in Johnston Co., on the 25th December, by John R. Coats, Esq., James M. Par – n, 31st Regiment to Eliza Ann Johnson daughter of James B. Johnson. North Carolina Standard Raleigh January 25, 1865 We are pained to state that W.J. Lougee of this city was so injured on Wednesday last on his farm some ten miles east of this city by the falling of a tree that he died on Wednesday night. He was girdling and burning trees when a tree fell upon him by which he was shockingly mangled. He was one of our most worthy and industrious citizens. Died, on the 7th inst., in the 49th year of her age, Mrs. Wm. W. Leach, consort of Hon. J.T. Leach. She was an affectionate wife and fond mother. Her many kind offices to the poor will be long remembered and her death is universally regretted. She lingered long upon her share of time as her system had been invaded by disease which terminated her earthly career. Awaiting the summons of her father she passed quietly through the valley of the shadow of death, fearing no evil, supported by the rod and staff of her almighty Savior. Died, at the residence of his father in Petersburg on Thursday, January 12, Walter Kevan in the 22nd year of his age. Died, at his residence in Bloomington, in Guilford Co., N.C., on the 29th Sept., Clarkson Tomlinson, Esq., aged 42 years, 9 months and 11 days. He had been in delicate health for the past 15 years prior to his death; although the disease of which he died was lingering, yet he bore it with fortitude, with no alarm at the approach of his death. Few men ever possessed a larger share of the qualities which are best adapted to win and retain the attachments of friends than he did. He was a man of warm heart and easy and agreeable manners; his temper cheerful and hopeful; his conversations sprightly and entertaining; he was a staunch friend and a delightful companion. He took a great interest in a Sabbath School to which he had been connected for a number of years and there was a great delight to meet with his young friends on a Sabbath morning. He was a strong friend to education, giving not only his influence but largely of his means. His loss will be greatly felt by his wife, numerous friends and relatives in the neighborhood but we trust our loss is his eternal gain. North Carolina Standard Raleigh Feb. 17, 1865 Married, at the residence of the bride’s father, on Feb. 11, by L.W. Hood, Esq., B.E. Scarborough of Company H, 31st N.C.T., to S.A.E. Ellis, all of Wake Co. Married, at Cheraw, S.C., on the 8th inst., by Rev. T.M. Bostle, Wm. Sharpe of Barnes 4th N.C.T., to Madelin Martin, eldest daughter of General and Mrs. D.S. Crenshaw. Married, in Lenoir County, on the 7th inst., by J.W. Kinsey, Esq., Lewis Wiley, of Company B, 3rd N.C.T. to Hellen(?) Brown of Onslow co. (looks more like Hollon??) Married, at the residence of the bride’s father on the 11th inst., by Rev. Wm. A Brame, A.M. Timberlake to Hattie B. Wilson, all of Franklin Co., N.C. Married, at Elm Grove, Davidson Co., on Thursday evening, 11th inst., by Alex Conrad, Esq., Martin Carroll to Polly A. Baker, all of Davidson County. May their happy days be many. Married, on the 9th Feb., at the residence of the bride’s mother, by J.T. Shell, Esq., Dr. W.W. Gilbert of Rutherford Co., to Margaret M. Holler(?) of Caldwell Co. Died, at his residence in this city on Saturday last, H.L. Evans, merchant of this place, in the 42nd year of his age—highly respected and a worthy citizen. Died, in this city on Sunday last, after a lingering illness, A.G. Drake, Esq. Died, near New Hill, N.C., on the 24th December, Tabitha, eldest daughter of James and Sarah A. Ennis(?), in the 8th year of her age. She was the pride of her parents but her innocent spirit hath taken flight to that land where they intend to meet her again to part no more forever. Died, on the 14th November, 1863(?) at the residence of her mother in Montgomery Co., Va., Miss Mary C. Thompson, aged 19 years, 10 months and 11 days. She embraced religion at the age of 16 years under the ministry of Rev. J.J. Engle and joined the M.E. Church of which she remained a faithful member until her death. It is seldom that the Christian graces shine more brilliantly in the character of any one than they did in her; and in her death her community has lost one of its ornaments and the church one of its greatest stars. Truly it may be said of her “none knew her but to love her; none named her but to praise.” She had long been a child of affliction and for several years before her death she suffered intensely with disease of the heart which terminated her earthly existence; yet she bore her sufferings with great patience after expressing her desire to depart and be with Christ. She has left a mother, brother and four sisters to mourn their loss yet they sorrow not as those who have no hope as their loss is her eternal gain. God shall wipe away all tears from thine eyes.

Kent Brown, of Wilmington, and daughter of the late Benjamin L. McLauchlin of Columbia, S.C., aged 23. Mrs. Brown was a lady of rare qualities, both of mind and heart. Her education, under the direction and supervision of an intelligent and pious mother, was extensive, thorough and substantial. Her judgment was excellent. She possessed great simplicity of character and freedom from all affectation. Died, in Moore Co., 13th (?) 18th (?) Sept., Harriett Fooshee, youngest child of J.W. and Ann Stedman, aged 7 months. He who said while on earth “suffer the little children to come unto me” has taken from the bereaved parent her sweet babe to nestle in His breast. Mourning ones, let your tears be dry and strive to meet your loved one in glory. Died, in Hertford Co., Sunday, Sept. 18, at 2:10 pm, of typhoid fever, Lavinia Jane, only daughter of Wiley and Jane Brown, aged 18(?)16(?) years, 4 months and 15(?) days. Seldom has it been our lot to record a more distressing bereavement than this, for never did the hand of death strike a more poignant blow. A dutiful and affectionate daughter and a devoted sister, she leaves behind her a stricken family, a large and numerous circle of friends to deplore her loss. Death loves a shining mark.

Just two months previous to her death she professed religion and joined the M.E. Church, South. Always kind, affectionate and good, under the sanctifying influences of religion, she was all her fond mother and large circle of friends and relatives could wish her to be. After a protracted illness of great suffering; she died early and triumphantly, having expressed herself as perfectly willing to die.

He emigrated to this state in 1804; resided for several years in Montgomery Co., and was for many years a citizen of Fayetteville. His practical knowledge, genial and charitable disposition—receiving no reward but the gratification afforded by the faithful discharge of duty—furnished an example fit to be emulated by all. He passed away full of good deeds, respected by all, lamented by many, and in the hope of a reward, not of works but faith. D. Departed this life, in this county, on the 6th inst., Neill McArthur, Sr., aged 76.

He was soon after appointed an elder in that church and continued there with much acceptance until the organization of Big Rockfish Church, when he was transferred to it, and in which he served as an elder with zeal and fidelity until his death. We trust and believe that he entered upon that Sabbath of eternal rest that remains for the people of God and was received into the sanctuary above, where forever he will unite with the heavenly host in praising God for redeeming grace and undying love.

Departed this life on the morning of the 25th November, after a very protracted illness of several weeks, Isaac H. Foust, Esq., of Randolph Co., one of our most enterprising, amiable and useful fellow citizens, in the 46th year of his age. Few men have sustained with more success the various relations of life. He was an attentive, provident and kind husband and father, a just and impartial magistrate and an untiring counselor and friend. He bore his suffering with great fortitude and patience. At length the night passed, the morning came and as the rising sun began to shed its light over the face of nature, his pure spirit took its flight and a bright jewel was added to his Savior’s crown. By this deeply afflictive dispensation of an all wise and merciful Providence, a wife and seven children, also very numerous and wide spread connections, among whom the deceased was a shining ornament, are left to mourn their irreparable loss. They mourn, but in hope that their loss is his eternal gain. Fayetteville Observer, Monday, December 12, 1864 Married, in Warrenton, N.C., on the 1st inst., Col. John D.

Abraham Brower of Randolph co., one of our most enterprising, amiable and useful fellow citizens, in the 86th (?) year of his age.

He represented his county in the legislature for five consecutive terms and the faithfulness with which he filled that high trust won for him a reputation which will live in the hearts of his friends though he is gone. He was an attentive and kind husband and father, a good neighbor and a just and impartial friend. Those who knew him best loved him more.

Fayetteville Observer, Monday, January 30, 1896 (note, see another notice above on this man from the Raleigh Standard) We record with unfeigned regret the death of A.M. Gorman, Esq., the junior editor of the Confederate of this city. This announcement will be received with general regret and surprise. It was only last Friday that he was closely engaged in his arduous labors in his office. That night he complained of being unwell and took to his bed. Up to Monday night, although his disease developed itself as erysipelas, no apprehension was felt. But on Tuesday morning it assumed a most violent form which continued to increase, causing great pain and suffering and terminated his earthly existence between eleven and twelve o’clock that night. Mr. Gorman was in the 51st year of his age. He was a native of this city, learned the printing business when a boy, with the late Joseph Gales, Esq., of the Register, and for some years after attaining his majority, lived in Georgia, where he first married. He returned to this city some years ago and in 1848 established the Spirit of the Age, a paper which, under his able management, maintained for years a deserved popularity in the state and in the South. For nearly a year he has been associated with Col. McRae in the conduct of the Confederate, to the popularity of which paper he has contributed much. Mr. Gorman was an excellent citizen, a man of a genial and kind spirit, benevolent and charitable, and a warm hearted friend. A more devoted husband and father we have not known. Losing his first wife, he married an accomplished lady of Virginia some nine years ago, whom he leaves a suffering widow with four children to lament their loss. The death of such a man is a public loss.

Died, on the morning of Sunday, Jan. 15(?) 18(?), at the Gulf, Chatham Co., Mrs. Mary R. Haughton, relict of the late John Haughton, fell asleep in Jesus, aged 73 years, 6 months and 4 days. It is seldom we are called upon to mourn the death of so exemplary a character. As a wife, a mother and a friend, she attracted the admiration of all. As a wife, she was indeed a help meet, diligent, careful, obedient and loving. Removing from the low country to the Gulf, she felt the need of her church; and never rested until St. Mark’s Church was built. The diligence with which she performed her religious duties, brought its reward. The last year and a half of her life, being paralyzed, she underwent great suffering, which, by the grace of God, she endured with patience and Christian resignation. When death came it held no terrors for her. Fayetteville Observer, Monday, Feb. 20, 1865 Married, near Lumber Bridge, Robeson Co., on the 14th inst., by Rev. Malcolm McNair, Duncan C.
