Confederate Veteran , February, 1922.
On the 8th day of November, 1921, there passed into the great beyond the soul of Capt. CALVIN PRITCHARD, who died as he had lived, a true soldier of Christ. He was in his 91st year. Captain PRITCHARD was born in Bertie County, N.C. Feb.25, 1831. He followed LEE and JOHNSTON through the War Between the States, giving 4 years of his life to the service of his country as a soldier of the Confederacy. He commanded Company G, 32nd Regiment of North Carolina Troops. After the war he returned home and assumed heroic task of rebuilding a ruined and desolate country.
In 1874 he was married to MISS MARIE WARD of Franklinton, N.C., a young woman noted for her beauty and intellect. To them 5 children were born and of them two sons and a daughter survive him; his wife died some years ago. In late years he made his home with his daughter, MRS. W.A. SEGRAVES at Holly Springs. He joined the Baptist church about 75 years ago and served as deacon for over 50 years. He was a member of the Oscar R. Rand Camp and his death takes from that membership a comrade tried and true.
