The Daily Dispatch: August 23, 1861., [Electronic resource], Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch. (search)
The exceptions named are watched by some of the first men in the county. I regret to announce a melancholy case of drowning, resulting in the death of Mr. Isaac Steers, the railroad contractor, who is well known in your city. He was by birth a Pennsylvanian, but a truer man to the South never breathed. His labors and sacrifices in behalf of our cause can be attested by all who knew him. Mr. Steers left his house this morning to go to his furnace in Rockbridge county, where he was engaged in an extensive contract for making iron for the Government. The heavy rain of yesterday and last night had swollen the river, but he thought he could cross, as a wagon had forded the stream just before. While crossing, Mr. Steers' buggy turned over, and he unfortunately perished. His body has not yet been found. The State, as well as the Confederacy, has, lost a valuable citizen. He was beloved by all who knew him; and honesty, industry and charity were his prominent characteristics.
