From the Marion County Patriot dated February 16, 1900
Death of Mr. Womack
Mr. Charley Womack, a Confederate veteran sixty-four years of age, died at his home near William's mill last Saturday morning and his remains were laid to rest at Hopewell church Sunday morning. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. R. F. Williamson, and at its conclusion the minister announced that the company comrades of the deceased would convey the remains to their last resting place. Six of Mr. Womack's company comrades arose in the audience, and bore the remains to the cemetery, and our informant states that he had not proceeded more than a half a mile when he met the seventh comrade. This is a remarkable circumstance. Not many Confederate veterans could die in this country now and have six of his company comrades so loving lay his remains to rest.
