Joseph Culbreath Dies At Saluda
Veteran of Mexican War Passes Away
Was in Palmetto Regiment
Served With Distinction in Mexican War and War Between the Sections

Saluda, April 18 Joseph Culbreath of Saluda, veteran of the Mexican war and the War between the Sections, died at his home here this morning. Mr. Culbreath was 92 years of age, the oldest resident of Saluda county and an interesting man who was widely loved and honored.

Mous Palmetto regiment, enlisting from Laurens in Company L of that regiment. Entering the war as a fourth corporal at its close he was first lieutenant. He was awarded a gold medal with other commissioned officers of that regiment. This was one of his most prized possessions. It was one of his most cherished desires to live to receive the Jackson vase as the last surviving member of the Palmetto regiment. The death of Mr. Culbreath leaves only on other member of that famous regiment.

Enlising at the beginning of the War Between the Sections, Mr. Culbreath served throughout the struggle, taking part in more than 40 battles and skirmishes. He was never wounded.

He is survived by a widow and five sons.

Funeral services will be held tomorrow at Bethlehem church near his late home.
