Obituary of Edward Curd, Williamson County, Tennessee.

Edward Curd, born in Wilson County, Tenn., December 30, 1845, was a son of the late Price Curd, who came from Virginia in the early part of the last century and made his home in Wilson County. Edward Curd was educated in his mative county, and at the beginning of the War between the States he enlisted in Freeman's Battery of Light Artillery, C. S. A., at the age of sixteen years and served four years. At no time or place, either in war or peace, did Comrade Curd ever betray a trust, He took part in many important battles among the bravest and was always magnanimous to a fallen foe. He had been in feeble health for some time before his death, which occurred on April 21, 1916. He had been a citizen of Williamson County, Tenn., since 1881 and was an honored member of McEwen Bivouac, No. 4, of Confederate Veterans, at Franklin. His wife and two sons survive him. In his home life Edward Curd was happy in its love and devotion. In civic and Church relations he was faithful in the discharge of all duties.

In the resloutions passed by McEwen Bicouac in his honor it is stated "that it is a just tribute to his memory to say we mourn for one who was in every way worthy our highest regard. Every act of his life bespoke the true Christian gentleman of whom it has been most truly said by one who knew him best, that he had 'never met a truer, manlier man.'"
