Article taken from the Confederate Veteran Mag., dated 1932.
Stonewall Jackson Camp, No. 118, U.C.V. of Brownwood, Tex., mourns the loss of another member in the death of JOHN CALDWELL ALCORN, 85 years of age, who died on the 26th of Jan., 1932 at Bangs, Tex. He was born in Floyd County, Ga.,Oct. 21, 1847 and in 1864 at the age of 16, he enlisted in the Confederate Army in the command of Gen. Joe Wheeler.
In Dec., 1869, he was married to MISS MARY BARRETT, who survives him with seven of the eight children born to them, 6 sons and 2 daughters. He was a member of the Presbyterian church of which denomination his great-grandfather, JOSIAH ALCORN, was an elder in Ireland.
Just before his passing, after having been unconscious for some time, MR. ALCORN sang in a loud clean voice every word of the song " I Need Thee Every Hour".
[Mary E. White, Adjutant Stonewall Jackson Camp, U.C.V.]
