Weekly Standard Newspaper, Raleigh, NC--Dec 25, 1861 Wm H. Drumwright

DIED.
On the 19th November, of camp fever, at Blue Sulphur Springs, Va., WM H. DRUMWRIGHT, in the 24th year of his age, of Capt. Harris' Company, Col. Clark's 14th Reg. N. C. Vol. The subject of this notice was a young man of most excellent qualities and much promise; he had spent much time and means in fitting himself for usefulness in his day and generation. He was a young man of fine education and feeble health, yet he went as a private, and served in that capacity until his death. The death of one so young and so promising falls heavily upon his family and his numerous friends, yet we mourn not as those who have no hope; for we feel sure that our loss is his eternal gain, for we feel that he has discharged his duty to his fellow man, his country and his God. J. D.
Spirit of the Age please copy.
