Aged Confederate Veteran Dies.
Abilene, Tex., Jan. 18. – Impressive services marked the funeral here today of C. P. warren, 81, confederate veteran and wealthy cattleman and banker who died yesterday after three weeks illness. He was born in Tennessee and lived in Arkansas for several years before coming to Abilene thirty years ago.
(Associated Press Dispatch.)
In 1861 Mr. Warren enlisted as a private soldier in Dr. F. M. Christian's company, known as the Border Rangers, remaining in that capacity and with that command for four years and ten days. He took part in a number of battles and skirmishes, one in particular being the battle of Chickamauga, in which his company dismounted and fought as infantry. He was also at Shiloh and Corinth, and was under the famous Confederate cavalry commanders: Forrest, Wheeler, Hampton and Armstrong, but a greater portion of the time was with Forrest and Wheeler. His first experience in warfare was at Lost Creek, Mo., in 1861, and he surrendered with his command st Charlotte, N. C., at which time there was a request made by the commanding [p.259] officers of both armies for volunteers to go to Chesterville, S. C., to guard and serve the rations to the Confederate soldiers as they were paroled, the Government allowing the cavalry to retain their arms and horses. Mr. Warren finally arrived at home, June 15, 1865, having ridden his horse all the way.
Upon his return to Arkansas, he successfully invested in farming and merchandising. In 1891, he moved with his family to Abilene, TX where he lived and prospered until his death. As his father before him, he was known for his kindness and exceptional generosity.
