Mr. Samuel LANCASTER, the last remaining Confederate veteran in Trigg County, died at his home on Beechy Fork Creek in this county last Thur. evening at 7 PM.

He was born, according to the records, in Trigg County 7-29-1843.

  Burial at the Allen Graveyard.  In early life he was married to Miss Parthenia LAWRENCE, dau. of Humphrey LAWRENCE, who preceeded him to the grave many years ago.

  He was later married to Miss Maggie HUTCHISON, who also preceeded him in death.  Two daus., Mrs. Henry BRIDGES and Mrs. Eura FRANCE, survive him.  Also numerous grandchildren, some great grandchildren and 1 g-g-grandchild.

  War records in the court house disclose the fact that Mr. LANCASTER with 16 other men of Trigg County, enlisted in Oct. 1860 in the Confederate Army at Stewart County, Tenn. as a member of 50th Tenn. Regiment.  A.C. RICHARDS was the captain in his company.  This regiment was taken at once to Fort Donelson and assisted in the erection of fortifications at that place and fought through the battle at Fort Donelson in Feb. of 1862.  His regiment was captured at the fall of the fort, but he made his escape the Sunday following the capture.  His company was later exhanged for other prisoners at Vicksburg on the 29th of Sept., 1862, and later reorganized at Sweetwater, Miss.  He never rejoined his original company, but did re-enlist in the CSA in the 2nd Ky. Cavalry during Aug. of 1862, prior ot the reorganization and served under Col. Woodard.  he served in the company until his capture by the Federals and was confined in a Federal prison at Hopkinsville.

An application for a Confederate pension made by Mr. LANCASTE discloses the fact that he was confined to the Federal prison in Hopkinsville in March of 1863, but was released the same month when the Federal prisoners at that place were to be moved.  He was sick at the time and unable to travel, but was told that if he took the oath of allegiance to the US he would be allowed to go home. He took the oath and was allowed to go home.
P.B. HARRELL, former Confederate Vet., served with Mr. LANCASTER in the Tenn. Regiment and H.C. VINSON and M.M. WILLIAMS, both of this county, were companions in the 2nd Ky. Cavalry.  His record does not disclose that he was ever wounded in action.
