Carter Leroy Woodyard

Obituary of Leroy Hilton Carter, Prince William County, Virginia.

On March 18, 1915, Comrade Leroy Hilton Carter passed over the river, thus thinning the ranks of the men who wore the gray. Comrade Carter is the fourth of our Camp who has gone from us since the Gettysburg reunion.

He was born in 1846 in Prince William County, Va., near Bacon Race and when sixteen years old enlisted in Huger's Battery, C. S. A., and was wounded in the battle of Gettysburg. When nineteen years old he marired Miss Rhoda Ella Leroy, of Caroline County. After the death of his first wife, he married MIss Sarah C. Woodyard, of Washington, D. C., in 1895, and she survives him.
