Fathers of Confederate Veterans.

When Rev. Jacob R. Hildebrand died, it was thought that he was the last man in Augusta county who had sons in the Confederate army, but the statement of that fact has brought to light the names of at least four men who are now living who had sons in the Confederate army. They are Mr. Henry Harrison and Mr. John A. Wiseman, of Staunton; Mr. James McDaniel, of Stuart's Draft, and Mr. William F. Bradley, of Cotopaxi, the last named being nearly ninety-four years of age. There are not many left, however, and it is really remarkable that there are any. The Rockbridge County News thinks there is not one left in Rockbridge.—Staunton Dispatch.

The above published in December, 1908, and copied generally by the Virginia press seems to have failed to elicit any additional names.—Ed.
