MR. BERRYHILL’S FUNERAL

Old Campaigner Laid to Rest This Morning.

The funeral of Mr. Pink Berryhill, who died yesterday morning from wounds received by being struck by a train on Saturday afternoon, was held this morning in the undertaking rooms of J. M. Harry & Company, and the interment was at Elmwood Cemetery.

The services were conducted by Rev. R. C. Holland, chaplain of Mecklenburg Camp Confederate Veterans, of which Mr. Berryhill was a member. The following acted as pallbearers: Messrs. M. L. Davis, Z. T. Smith, A. G. Stancil, Charles Taylor, F. A. Reeves, and J. F. Campbell.

Mr. Berryhill had lived an eventful life, and had seen many of its rugged edges.

He was a member of Company K, Forty-Ninth Regiment, known as Ramseur’s Regiment. He fought all through the war, and was made deaf by the bursting of a shell at the battle of Fredericksburg. He was in the seven-days fight at Gettysburg.

After the war he returned to his home, bout on account of his deafness and other disabilities which he suffered as a result of his long campaigning, he was just able to keep the wolf from the door in the years of peace.

Mr. Berryhill’s record in the army was good and since the close of the war he had lived a life which was blameless.

Mr. Berryhill was a miner by trade and for years worked in the Rudisill and Copper Hill mines.
