Marshall McCormack, member of Company B, 4th Iowa Cavalry, died in the General Hospital at Paducah, Kentucky, February 12th, 1865. His remains were brought home for interment by his father, N. McCormack, Esq., of Delhi, Delaware County, Iowa, and were followed to the grave by a large concourse of people. He was regarded by his officers as a brave boy and trusty soldier. He was buried with military honors, and many of his late comrades now discharged bore him to his last resting place.
