Further Inroads On Confederate Army
The thin gray line in Russell county has suffered another loss last week when death took another old Confederate soldier, Lilburn Ball, 90 years old, at Honaker.
The deceased was a lieutenant in the army of Virginia and served with distinction.
He is survived by three children, T. F. Ball, and J. F. Wyatt, of Honaker, and Mrs. J. C. Griffith, of Bristol.
Less than ten Confederates remain in Russell county to tell of the conflict that tried men's souls.
