Georgia Obits for Confederate Veterans
HERALD, Taylor Co., Ga.,
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.
