His younger cousin, Mollie, remembered about Dave that . . . "Some of my older cousins were in the army, and we didn't always hear from them regularly. So it came about that my cousin, Dave Valentine, took measles in camp at Canton, Mississippi, and died without his family knowing of it. The body was brought home and when Aunt Mary went out to see who was arriving she fainted and fell down the steps when told that it was her son in the coffin. The last time he was home on leave my mother had made him a new shirt out of calico. He was so pleased with it that he told Mother, 'Aunt Sally, this shirt is pretty enough for me to be buried in.' And, sure enough, he was, for the casket was not opened for fear of others getting the measles."
