September 19, 1919|
Death removed from the county last Friday one of the old land marks and grand old men, John W. Kitchen, of Bolton, Russell county, his death following a lingering illness of cancer, and just three weeks after the burial of his second wife.
The deceased, who had rounded out 82 years of a useful life, fought in the Confederate army in the sixties, proving his worth as a gallant soldier, being a member of the 45th Virginia Regiment.
As a citizen the county had no better as his neighbors all testify.
Two daughters, aged 12 and 14 years, and two sons survive.
