 ANOTHER VETERAN OF CONFEDERACY PASSES

Mr. Charles M. Smith, a well known citizen of this county, seventy-eight years of age, died at his home seven miles northwest of Butler, last Wednesday night, May the 7th. Mr. Smith had been very feeble for quite awhile, and while his death was not unexpected, yet the parting was sad. He had long been a resident of Taylor County, and had a large number of strong personal friends. He was a valiant soldier in the Confederate Army, and was proud of the "Gray" he wore and the cause which he espoused and gave the best days of his young manhood to defend. Mr. Smith and Mr. Harris, two Confederate Veterans of this county passing away during the past week to answer the bugle call in the great beyond, tell in language unmistakably how rapidly the line of "Gray" is being thinned.

Mr. Smith is survived by his wife and the following children, by his first marriage, Mr. Ed Smith, of Manchester; Mr. Will Smith, of Woodbury; Mr. Lem Smith, of Atlanta; also one daughter, Mrs. John H. Adams, of near Howard. He was a step-father also to the following children by his second wife, Messrs. James Aultman, of Killeen, Texas; John Aultman, of Rupert; George Aultman, of Howard and Ambrey Aultman, of the A.E.F., France.

His remains were interred at Union Cemetery, the funeral service was conducted by Rev. L. A. Harrell, MG.

LAST VETERAN OF CIVIL WAR IN OCONEE IS DEAD

  Henry Doggett of Statham passed away at his home Saturday after an illness of
several weeks.  Mr. Doggett, because of his lovable personality, kindness and
generosity to all with whom he was associated, was known and called "Pappy" by
his family and countless friends throughout northeast, Ga.
  Henry Hillman Doggett joined the forces of the Confederacy at the age of
sixteen, serving with Major Cook's battalion from Clarke county.  After the war
he returned to Oconee county where he was married to Miss Alma Belle Ward, who
preceded him in death by 8 years.
  "Pappy" remained actively engaged in his farm interests until about ten years
ago when his eyes began to fail him and he was forced to retire.
  However, he never lost interest in the affairs of his state and the nation. 
He was much concerned about the present war and followed its progress closely. 
Mentally alert to the end, he sat upon his bed and discussed the Japanese war
with his family a few days before his death.
  Funeral services were held at the home of H. C. Johnson, at 2 o'clock (CWT). 
Burial followed in the Griffith cemetery, Oconee county.
  Surviving Mr. Doggett are two children, Mrs. J. A. Puckett, Athens, and F. A.
Doggett, Oxford, GA, fourteen grandchildren, twenty-four great grandchildren
and one great great grandson.
