Obituary of R. C. Carden, Manchester, Tennessee.

R. C. Carden died at his home, near Manchester, Tenn., on June 13, 1915, after a long illness, bravely borne. He wrote the following a short while before he died and asked his son to send it to the Veteran: "I was born July 4, 1843, enlisted in the Confederate cause the 21st of May, 1861, and served in the army of the C. S. A. three years, seven months, and twenty-seven days."

Just a brief record of his gallant service as a Confederate soldier; it was not his nature to claim much. He was a member of Company B, 16th Tennessee Infantry, Cheatham's Brigade. He lived a Christian life-a member of the Methodist Church from his conversion while in the army. Seven daughters and three sons are left a noble heritage in his good name.
