Wm. Lockhart Dead.
Our town and community was saddened Monday morning by the announcement of the death of William Lockhart. His death occurred Sunday night after a lingering illness.
The deceased was about 67 years of age and is survived by his widow and a large family of grown sons and daughters, being the father of fourteen children. Mr. Lockhart was a brave Confederate soldier and was in many hard battles, always acquitting himself with great bravery.
Besides being a devoted husband, a loving father and a good citizen, he was a consistent christian gentleman, a loyal member of the Missionary Baptist church. He now rests under the shades of the trees with Lee and Jackson.
The bereaved ones have the sympathy of the community. - Honaker Herald.
