The following from Find A Grave contributor Mary Walzer #47177344:
The following was taken from the 1923 "United Confederate Veteran" magazine:
The following is taken from resolutions by Schuyler Sutton Camp No. 1663 U.C.V., of San Angelo, Tex., on the death of Henry Ditmore, a member in good standing:
"Henry Ditmore was born near Athens, Tenn., September 27, 1841, and died in San Angelo, Tex., January 29, 1923. When he was three years of age, his parents removed to North Carolina, near the Tennessee and Georgia line, from which place he enlisted in the Confederate army in 1861. He was a member of Company D, 25th North Carolina Infantry. He was captured in 1863 and sent to Fort Delaware prison, where he remained until the close of the war. He was in the battle of Fredericksburg and all the battles in the east and around Richmond prior to his capture.
"Comrade Ditmore removed to Texas in 1867, settling in Panola County, and was married to Miss Elvira Matthew, of which union there were thirteen children, seven of them surviving him - six sons and one daughter.
"In 1886 Comrade Ditmore moved to East Texas, settling on Grape Creek in Tom Greene county, where he lived continuosly until just a few years before his death, when he retired from active life and came to San Angelo. His wife died in 1911.
He was a kind husband, an indulgent father, and loyal to his friends. He rendered valient services as a soldier of the Confederacy, and was a man of high honor and integrity. In his death our camp has lost a faithful member and Tom Greene County a good citizen."
