Military Monday: Tribute to Departing Soldier

Manassas Democrat
November 8, 1917

Mr. Clarence C. Mayhugh, of Gainesville, Va., left for Camp Lee Petersburg, Wednesday where he has been called for military service in response to his country's call.  He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.  He was kind hearted and loving to all whom he came in contact with; he was always ready to help those in need and we hope that this terrible conflict will soon be over and our Prince William boys will soon return home.  Our sympathy goes out to all their loved ones at home.  He leaves a large circle of friends far and wide and we all pray for his speedy and safe return.

[Clarence Clarkson Mayhugh, the son of Rosie R. and Lee Mayhugh, served with Company C, 318th Infantry.  He died January 7, 1918 and is buried in Mount Pleasant Baptist Cemetery in Gainesville, Va.]
