Michael O. O'Rourke, who served in Company G (Montgomery True Blues), 3d Alabama Regiment, A. N. V., after a lingering illness, passed to rest at Mobile, Al., December 6, 1914, aged seventy years. He enlisted in 1861 in his seventeenth year, sttod to his work till the surrender without furlough or illness, and when he got his parole went home and fought some more till the State was relieved of a class of individuals that he detested worse than he did armed Federal soldiers. He was connected with the press of Mobile in every position from printer to editor from 1866 until his seizure by a fatal illness.
