Morris Pollock

Obituary of James Dickson Pollock, Barton, Maryland.

James Dickson Pollock was born August 27, 1841, near Cumberland, Md., on the west bend of the Potomac River, and died near Barton, Md., on January 27, 1916, in his seventy-fifth year. He served four years in Company F, 7th Virginia Cavalry, and for his faithful service he received the Confederate cross of honor through the Daughters of the Confederacy of Maryland. After the war closed he returned to his home, near Cumberland, and there his life was spent on his farm until March, 1915, when he removed to a farm near Barton. He was married in 1896 to Miss Nellie Morris, who, with their children, two sons and four daughters, lives to mourn the loss of this kind and loving husband and father. His eldest child was named Winnie Davis Pollock, in memory of the cause he loved.

Comrade Pollock was a member of the James Breathed Camp, U. C. V., of Cumberland, as long as it was kept up. There are a few of the veterans there now. Although never a member of the Church, he held to the faith of his parents, who were Presbyterian.
