Obituary of William J. Donahue, Apalachicola, Florida.

Comrade William J. Donahue enlisted in the first year of the War between the States as a member of Company B, 4th Florida Infantry, at Apalachicola, Fla., and served with valor and honor throughout the war.

Some months ago this comrade became very feeble, being in his seventy-second year, and became an inmate of the Catholic Home for the infirm and helpless at Mobile, Ala., where he recently passed away. His sister, also an inmate of the Home, was with him to the end.

Comrade Donahue was past commander of Camp Tom Moore, No. 556, U. C. V., at Apalachicola, and while with us here was custodian of Messina Hall, our headquarters. He was a loyal and dutiful Confederate veteran and a companionable member of our camp, whose presence at our social meetings will be sadly missed. He was an old subscriber to the Confederate Veteran, and the height of his ambition and pleasure seemed to be in receiving and reading its contents.

Farewell, "Dunnie." May you rest in peace!

[Fred G. Wilhelm, Adjutant.]
