Obituary of G. J. Atkisson, Memphis, Texas.

Capt. G. J. Atkisson, a brave and true Southern soldier, died March 17, 1915, at the age of eighty-three years, and he was laid to rest by his comrades, friends, and associates at Memphis, Tex. Captain Atkisson was commander of his company, in the 9th Tennessee Regiment, a good part of the time under General Forrest. Men who knew him report he was a good and faithful officer, always ready to do his duty. At the close of the war he went to Texas, and for a number of years he had been an honored citizen of Memphis, where he organized the U. C. V. Camp, which was named in his honor. He is survived by two sons and three daughters-D. D. and G. B. Atkisson, Mrs. J. A. Whaley, Mrs. T. A. Hart, and Miss Biffie Atkisson.
