Cleary Shearer

Obituary of Charles E. Cleary, Isola, Mississippi.

I sorrowfully record the passing away from mortal sight another brave, loyal Southern soldier. Charles E. Cleary, born September 8, 1835, in County Tyrone, Ireland, died at the home of his daughter at Isola, Miss., on July 15, 1920.

Charley Cleary entered the Confederate service early in 1861 as a member of Company C, 32d Mississippi Infantry, under Col. (afterwards Brig. Gen.) M. P. Lowrey. His steady courage, his fine soldierly qualities won deserved promotion, and at the close of the war he was first lieutenant and in command of his company.

I knew him well, and during more than three years of army service and in all the years since I have been proud of the constant friendship of this warm-hearted, gallant Irish soldier, this true, good man.

Peace to his ashes of a dear old friend and comrade!

[P. W. Shearer, Greenwood, Miss.]
