Marshal Henery*, an old Confederate soldier, died Wednesday at his home near Macedonia of cholera morbus. Mr Henery was 72 years old at the time of his death and was born and raised in the state near Fayetteville. When the great civil struggle commenced his youth was waking into manhood. His soul was set afire with ambition for the freedom of his Southland. He rushed into the struggle and under the leadership of that great fighter, General Fagin, one for himself the glorious encocium of the "Fighting Marshall" from his comrades in arms. He was desperately wounded at the battle of Pea Ridge but recovering rushed into the struggle again only to see his flag go down in blood and tears. When the clouds of war cleared away he returned to his home to sit like an uncrowned king among his growing family and his neighbors until the mystery- Death claimed him for its own.
