He was always at the front when most needed. He was in all the principal battles of that amy, and surrendered at Appomattox.  He was a patriot in every sense, and ever clung to the Southern cause.

There were four of the Key brothers, all of whom served in the Confederate army.  Maj. Thomas J. Key commanded artillery under Gen. Cleburne, and is at present editor of the Southern Agriculturalist, Nashville. Joseph Key, Kerens, Tex., (Navarro Co.) belonged to the Fifteenth Arkansas Regiment, and was in the service to the end. John T. Key, now of Nashville, although very young, was in the Sixteenth Mississippi Regiment Cavalry under Forrest, and was in the battles of Athens, Sulphur Branch, Pulaski, and Elk River.

Columbus Key, at the close of the war, purchased a large farm eight miles from Corinth, Miss., where he lived until his death.  He was esteemed by all his neighbors.  He leaves four worthy children, one daughter and three sons, who will take care of and provide for their mother.

One by one the heroes of the greatest battles ever fought are passing to the mansions prepared by their Savior.
