Last G.A.R. Veteran Dead

"Uncle Charley", C. W. Cockran, last known living G.A.R. and the veteran of the Civil War from Knox County died Sept. 10. He was at the National Veteran's Administration Home, West Los Angeles, Calif., where he had been for some years and where death came. He had been a resident of Novelty sixty-one years before going to Pomona, Calif., to his son, Frank W. Corkran. He was buried at the military home, as was his wish to be. The last veteran living in the county, Solomon Conder, died last July. No other particulars as to Mr. Cockran's death were available. The Lewis sisters of Edina are cousins.
