Death came very suddenly on the 19th to Alfonso B. Holyard [SIC] at the home of his son-in-law Charles Smith, near to where he was born 67 years ago, and since resided and raised a family of good children who survive him. On May 17, 1861, in Columbus Mr. Holyard [SIC] joined Capt. John Shropshire's company, which was afterwards known as Company A, Tom Green's Regiment, Sibley's Brigade, and went through the hardships of that command in its campaign to New Mexico. He went through the battle of Val Verde, Johnson's Ranch, Glorietta, Parolto and others, in which campaign he lost two step-brothers, Robert and Ashley. Another step-brother, John, died recently. Mr. Holyard [SIC] returned to Texas in 1862, was in the retaking of Galveston, Jan 1, 1863 and through the campaign in Louisiana. The deceased leaves behind, about fourteen members of the original company to join with the family in mourning the loss of one we all loved. Info provided by cypressgreen
