Obituary and Biographical Detials

Member of Mosby’s Rangers in Civil War: Private, Company E, Mosby’s Regiment Virginia Cavalry

Enlisted 28 July 1864 at Upperville, Virginia, by Col. Mosby [from CMSR Fold3.com]

From letter in VMI archives: “the ladies vied with each other in their attention to him [during his last illness]…an old bishop wrote to his mother and said that in all his long life he had never seen any one better prepared to die.”
