A concourse of mourning friends followed on yesterday the remains of Mr. Jos. H. Stovall to their last resting place until the trumpet shall sound and the dead arise.  To many of our people he may not have been known, but the soldiers of Virginia will remember him as a quiet, faithful, earnest defender of the cause now lost, but not forgotten.  In the relations of life where it pleased God to place him he discharged his duties and bore his responsibilities as one doing his best did well.  Suffering came to him almost as a heritage, and especially did he bear during the last days of his life a cup full to the brim, yet murmured not nor in complaint found tongue.  He was nearly related to a large number of our most influential citizens, and from his narrow home beside an honored father leaves to them a memory of quiet goodness and silent fortitude which shall remain long after kindred dusts embrace. –Augusta Constitutionalist.

Mr. Stovall was a brother-in-law of Mrs. E. M. Stovall of this county and has other relations in this county.
