 OUR HONORED DEAD

   At  the Annual Session of the
King's Mountain Association, held at Beaver Dam, the committee on OBITUARIES
presented the following report; giving the name and dates of those who have died
in the present war, belonging to the different CHURCHES in the Association. It
is a long catalogue of the honored dead, who have given up their lives in the
cause of our country's struggle for liberty, and their names should be preserved
and cherished as martyrs in the sacred cause. Every Church should do the same
thing....
