Obituary of James F. Sykes, Hillsboro, Texas.

J. W. Morrison, W. L. McKee, and Tam Brooks, committee for the Camp at Hillsboro, Tex., report the loss of a comrade, James F. Sykes, and member of Company H, 14th North Carolina Infantry, Hagood's Brigade, during the War between the States, who died on April 19, 1916, at the Confederate Home in Austin, Tex. He was born in North Carolina August 20, 1847. He entered the Confederate service at the age of seventeen years, remaining until the close of the war, being then a prisoner at Point Lookout, Md. He went to Texas in 1871, engaged in the profession of teaching school, and was a prominent educator during most of the time prior to his death. He was a citizen of Hillsboro for several years before entering the Home. That Comrade Sykes was a good soldier is shown in his record as a citizen of Texas.
