Mr. C. T. Hardman (Uncle Charlie as everyone knew him) among the oldest citizens of the county and one of the fast vanishing ranks of Confederate veterans, passed away at the home of his son, Mr. W. C. Hardman, near Crawford, yesterday morning. He had been quite feeble for several years but had been able to attend the Memorial Day exercises here in May. He as in his 88th year of and had lived all his life in the county. He was one of the best citizens the county ever had, one of that old school ruggedness and scrupulous honor and integrity. He served his Southland for the full four years of the war. He is survived by a number of sons and daughters who mourn the loss of a good father. After the funeral services at ten o’clock this morning his remains were laid to rest in the family burying ground at his old home in Grove Creek District.
