Sept 30, 1864 Obituary
Seldom are we called to mourn the loss of one so beloved by all who knew him, as our young friend, Thomas A. Rushing, who fell in the trenches before Petersburg, Va., on the 11 Aug., 1864, in the 26th year of his age. He was a member of Co. C, (Delilah Dabney Guards) of the 60th Ala. Regt., with which company he had served faithfully through the campaigns of nearly 3 years, during which time he was never know to be form his post of duty. As a soldier he was brave, as a man he was amiable and generous - and in his death the Company has lost one of its noblest defenders, and his family a kind and affectionate relative. His many noble qualities had won for him scores of friends in whose hearts his amiable disposition and impeachable character will long be remembered. Our young friend has gone, and hour hearts are made sad, but when we draw around the familiar hearth and gaze in mute sorrow, let us remember that the link thus broken adds to the new one forming for all Godís chosen people, and that our great loss is his eternal gain. The deceased has left a darling wife and many relatives and friends to mourn his untimely death, to whom we offer our most sincere condolence in their sad bereavement. Comrades.(Researcher: Bridgesrd@worldnet.att.net) Ron Bridges
