From the Richmond Dispatch, 5/25/1863, p. 1, c. 2


A correspondent in Chesterfield writes us a note, informing us that the body of a soldier was found in the vicinity of Falling Creek, in that county, a few days since. He had in his pocket a strip of paper, with the following inscription upon it. “C. A. Beazley, co. H, 30th regiment Va. Vols., Corse’s brigade, Pickett’s division.” The soldiers who discovered the body buried it. Though the writer does not say so, we suppose he was drowned.
