Utley, J. M.
J. M. UTLEY died at his home in Holly Springs on January 13, 1921, in his seventy-seventh year. He was born and reared in this county, and in 1861, at the age of nineteen, he volunteered in Oscar R. Rand's company, but was transferred to Company I, 3rd N. C. Cavalry, and served four years for the Confederacy, taking part in some big raids. In the passing of this good man the Holly Springs Baptist Church lost a faithful member, and the Oscar R. Rand Camp of Veterans a true comrade, his family a devoted father. Surviving him are his wife and seven children.
Confederate Veteran, February 1922
