Obituary of William I. Satterfield, Hillsboro, Texas.

William I. Satterfield, who died at Hillsboro, Tex., on February 22, 1915, was born in Walker County, Va.[GA], December, 15, 1833. He was a son of Arthur Satterfield, a native of South Carolina, who went to Georgia as a young man and there married Miss Delilah Jenkins, and to them were born seven children, of whom William I. Satterfield was the oldest. The latter was twice married, in 1855, to Miss Margaret Swift, who died leaving one son. His second wife was Miss Frances Massey, of South Carolina; and of their three children, a son and daughter survive him.

In 1861 William Satterfield enlisted in Company G, 9th Infantry (under Colonel Hayes), Anderson's Brigade, Hood's Division, Longstreet's Corps, and he participated in the battles of Gettysburg, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Spottsylvania, the siege of Richmond, Battle of Seven Pines, Second Manassas, Yorktown, Jamestown, Cedar Run, and all the other battles in which Hood's Brigade took part. After the close of the war he returned to his Georgia home, removing thence to Chattanooga, Tenn., where he lived until 1877. In 1877 he took his family to Texas, settling in Hill County. Since 1911 he had lived in Hillsboro.

Hill County Camp, No. 166, U. C. V., through its committee composed of J. W. Morrison, J. K. Womack, and D. C. Wornell, passed resolutions in honor of this comrade, in whose passing the Camp feels the loss of "a worthy member, one whose valuable services to his country in her time of need were full of merit, as shown by his fine record as a soldier, participating in all those battles which crowned Hood's Texas Division with glory."
