Berryman Blakey

Obituary of Henry Walters Berryman, Alto, Texas.

Henry Walters Berryman died at his home near Alto, in Cherokee County, Tex., on February 14, 1922, at the ripe age of seventy-seven years. He entered the Confederate service from Cherokee County and was a member of Company I, 1st Texas Infantry, General Hood's famous brigade. He was twice wounded during his service, at the battle of the Wilderness and at Darby Town. He took part in the battle of Gettysburg. He leaves a wife and five children, four sons and one daughter. He was a true Confederate-a fast friend of the Confederate soldier and the cause he had espoused-a good citizen, and a member of the Baptist Church.

The Confederate veterans officiated at his burial and a large concourse of friends attended the funeral service.

[P. A. Blakey, Alto, Tex.]
