Carlisle McBride

Obituary of James A. Carlisle, Clinton, Missouri.

James A. Carlisle died in Clinton, Mo., December 9, 1915. He was a quiet, gentle, modest, and lovable man and yet one of the bravest of soldiers. At the beginning of the War between the States he enlisted in Stonewall Jackson's division under Gen. Robert E. Lee and was made sergeant of Company G, 7th Virginia Cavalry. He served faithfully and valiantly until the surrender of Lee's army, in 1865.

Mr. Carlisle was born February 14, 1827, in Baltimore, Md., and thus had nearly rounded out his eighty-ninth year. It was one of the pleasures of the Clinton Chapter, U. D. C, to remember this grand old veteran on his birthdays. He was a great reader and especially so during his last years. He looked forward each month for his delight, the CONFEDERATE VETERAN, and never grew weary of its pages. His wife and one daughter preceeded him to his heavenly home, and two daughters are left, Mrs. William McBride and Miss Sallie Carlisle, who will always cherish the memory of a kind, loving father.
