Article from the 'Confederate Veteran' magazine, dated 1907. Capt.ED ALDRICH This valiant old soldier came to an untimely death on March 21 while walking on the railroad near Gulfport, Miss. Capt. Aldrich enlisted in the 2d Missouri Cavalry [ Col. Robert McCulloch] early in the war, remaining with that regiment, in Forrest's Cavalry, until 1863, when he was transferred to the staff of Gen. Frank Armstrong with whom he served with distinction the remainder of the war. After the war closed, Captain ALDRICH settled near Byhalia, Miss., from whence he removed to Gulfport about one year ago. He was nearing his 80th year, and being very deaf, was an easy prey to a passenger train. His remains were interred at the Soldier's Home, Beauvoir, Miss. - [ This is not my family, only post the articles].
