[Charles Appleton] Poteet, on South Twenty-fifth street, after an illness of several months. He was born in Tennessee and came to Lamar county in 1841 when he was a small child with his father, T. R. H.

Until his retirement from active life he pursued the occupation of a farmer all the time with the exception of four years spent in the army during the Civil War. He was in active service east of the Mississippi river all the time that he was in the army and was with General Bragg in his march on Kentucky. He is survived by five children, all sons, his wife having died twenty-five years ago. The sons are Gibbons [William "Gibbons" Thomas] Poteet, cashier of the First National Bank of Roxton; Charles A. [Charles Appleton] and Hugh [Hugh "Bo" Tilamn] Poteet, who are in the cotton business in Paris; J. P. [James Pembroke] Poteet, a well known traveling man, and A. W. [Allen Wesley] Poteet, who is in the hardware business at Glazier, TX. The funeral service will be held at 10 O'clock this morning from the home of C. A.
