Letter Reporting Location Of Grave Of William F. Scallorn, Fayette County, Texas.

One of Terry's Texas Rangers-The grave of William F. Scallorn, of Fayette County, Tex., who died at Mooresville, in Marshall County, Tenn., in January 1863, a year after the surrender of Fort Donelson, has been located in a garveyard near Mooresville. A record had been made of it by the late John R. Bryant, at whose home the Texas soldier died, and now a simple monument will be erected over him by Capt. J. K. P. Blackburn, of Lynnville, Tenn., who was also a member of the famous command and had been trying for some time to locate the grave of his comrade. Captain Blackburn and A. M. Proctor, of Nashville, Tenn., are now the only surviving Tennessee members of Terry's Texas Rangers' Association.
