Pritchard, Calvin - Capt
On the 8th day of November, 1921, there passed into the great beyond the soul of CAPT. CALVIN PRITCHARD, who died as he had lived, a true soldier of Christ. He was in his ninety-first year. Captain Pritchard was born in Bertie County, N. C. February 25, 1831. He followed Lee and Johnston through the War between the States, giving four years of his life to the service of his country as a soldier of the Confederacy. He commanded Company G, 32nd Regiment of N. C. Troops. After the war he returned home and assumed the heroic task of rebuilding a ruined and desolate country. In all relations of life Captain Pritchard was to be relied on, giving his time and strength in any good work. In 1874 he was married to Miss Maria Ward, of Franklinton, N. C., a young woman noted for her beauty and intellect. To them five children were born, and of them two sons and a daughter survive him; his wife died some years ago. In late years he made his home with his daughter, Mrs. W. A. Segraves, at Holly Springs, N. C., where he was tenderly 'cared for. He joined the Baptist Church about seventy-five years ago and had served as deacon for over fifty years. He was a member of the Oscar R. Rand Camp No. 1278 U. C. V., of Holly Springs, and his death takes from that membership a comrade tried and true.
