Death of Holden W. Bethea

He was born October, 13 1844, died July, 26 1908. When only 16 years old he entered the confederate service, joined Capt. Harvey Staffords company of volunteers and participated in all the battles in which that famous command was engaged, with the exception of two years which he spent in the Federal prison at Rock Island. At the close of the war he returned to his home in Freestates, and married Miss Alice Rogers, and there survives him from this union three sons and one daughter. The year previous to his death, he, his wife and one son moved to Dillon. Mr. Bethea was a good citizen, unassuming and a consistent member of the M. E. church.
