William H. H. Thompson
HENRY BARCE, as we have before mentioned, served his time out and was on his way home when he was taken sick, of fever, and died June 17, '65, at the age of 26. His health was good during his entire term of service, from the first of September, '62, until the close of the war. He never failed of being able to perform his duty as a soldier, was in all the battles in which the 10th was engaged during the war, and of his sagacity and bravery, his associates all speak in the highest terms. He was a still, quiet young man, but strong, athletic, decided and prompt in acting, and possessed more education and knowledge than any other person his age in the town, when he enlisted. He leaves a sister and distant relatives to mourn his loss.
WM. H.H. Thompson, a cousin of HENRY BARCE, was taken prisoner at Falls Church, when Culpepper was evacuated by our forces, and died at Libby Prison, in the winter of '64.
