S.M. GODBEE Confederate Soldier 6th Miss. Reg.

Article from the 'Confederate Veteran ' magazine,
dated November, 1920.
S.M. GODBEE, a well known resident of Columbus, Miss., has been called to enternal rest after a long and painful illness. Death relieved his sufferings on Aug. 20, 1920, at the age of 74 years.
Having enlisted at the early age of 16 years in Company H, 6th Mississippi Regiment of Calvary, he served to the end and was paroled at Gainesville, Al., on May 12, 1865.
Private GODBEE'S record as a soldier is highly commendable, his character as a citizen without blemish and his memory revered by all who knew him.
As the last remaining member of his company, as far as known, this tribute is offered by his comrade.
[ W.A. Love.]
