Birth: Apr. 26, 1836

Virginia, USA
Death: Jun. 29, 1909

Civil War / Confederate / POW
-----------------------------
Addison Brown Roller, who departed this life June 29, 1909, aged 73 years and 2 months. Was a Virginian, born near Meyets Cove, Augusta county, April 26, 1836. He was noted for his piety, even when a child. At an early age he joined the German Reform church at Rockland Mills, Va., and soon became superintendent of its Sunday school, to the great satisfaction to the church. After moving to Indiana he united with the Presbyterian church of which denomination he remained a member until his death, having served in the capacity of ruling elder for many years.

His education not being completed he, during the year of 1860, entered the University of Virginia to educate himself for a profession, but the war between the states breaking in upon his future plans, he deemed it his duty to go to the front in defense of his state. With other students he joined Carrington's Battery, and served with gallantry. At the battle of Spotsylvania Court House in 1864, he was taken prisoner and remained in prison during the remainder of the war.

In 1865 he went to Millersburg, Ind., where he was united in marriage to Elizabeth R. Beane, to which union six children were born, of whom three survive. In 1880 he with his family moved to Labette county, Kansas, where he remained until his death.

In his death a peaceful and Christian life has vanished, his church has lost a faithful worker, his neighborhood a good and useful citizen and his family an affectionate and loving husband and father.
