Obituary of S. M. Godbee, Columbus, Mississippi.

S. M. Godbee, a well-known resident of Columbus, Miss., has been called to eternal rest after a long and painful illness. Death relieved his sufferings on August 20, 1920, at the age of seventy-four years.

Having enlisted at the early age of sixteen years in Company H, 6th Mississippi Regiment of Cavalry, he served to the end and was paroled at Gainesville, Ala., on May 12, 1865.

Private Godbee's record as a soldier is highly commendable, his character as a citizen without blemish, and his memory revered by all who knew him.

As the last remaining member of his company, as far as known, this tribute is offered by his comrade.

[W. A. Love]
