Hardy McIntosh

Obituary of W. D. McIntosh, Hereford, Texas.

The summons so anxiously awaited to one of God's noblemen at the close of January 23 when the gentle spirit of W. D. McIntosh passed into the great beyond. His earthly pilgrimage was over fourscore years. He died at the home of his son in Hereford, Tex., and was buried at Rosebud on the 26th.

W. D. McIntosh was born July 18, 1843, in Darlington, S. C., but moved to Mississippi and from that State he enlisted in the 20th Mississippi Regiment under General Forrest and did gallant service throughout the War between the States, receiving a wound in the battle of Corinth.

In October, 1865, he was married to Miss Marian Hardy, of Hardyville, near Newton, Miss., and twelve years later they went to Texas, locating in Robertson County, later living in Milam and Falls Counties. He united with the Baptist Church in 1866 and lived a loyal, consistent Christian life. His chief characteristics were honesty, truthfulness, loyalty to his friends and to his convictions. He is survived by four sons.
