"Charles W. Partee, Sr., one of the leading citizens of the Delta, and a Confederate veteran, died at his home at Belen, January 10, 1929.

"He was born in Gibson County, Tennessee, in 1844, son of Squire Boone and Martha A. (Douglas) Partee. About 1847 or 1848, the family moved to Panola County, and settled a few miles northeast of Como, where his father became a planter. He was educated in the common schools of Panola, and remained on his father's plantation until the outbreak of the War Between the States. He was seventeen years old when he volunteered in the Confederate Service at Union City, Tennessee, serving with Company F, Twelfth Mississippi Infantry, C. S. A.

"Later, he went to Jack Floyd's Independent Cavalry Company, which operated around Memphis, regulating conditions which had arisen in that vicinity, and then became Company H, of Alexander Chalmers Battalion, which still later became the Eighteenth Mississippi Cavalry, C. S. A. He had five brothers in the Confederate army, A. Z., R. D., Hiram, J. K. B., and S. B. Partee, Jr. His father died during the war and left large tracts of land in Quitman and other counties in the Delta. Mr. Partee married Miss Elizabeth Jackson, Oct. 22, 1871, but she died many years ago.

"He was identified with every progressive movement for Quitman County and the Delta, and is survived by his five children: C. W. Jr. of Memphis; Mrs. N. J. Davis of Arkansas; Mrs. I. C. Denton, Marks; Mrs. G. A. Denton, Belen and Mrs. Nina Mae Nardie, of Greenville."
