"J. (John) L. "Lumpkin" Stover", an old veteran who served several years
in the Confederate Amry, was in Dahlonega last Saturday. Mr. Stover was
a good and true soldier, one who was always found in the front rank,
having been shot seven times, once in the head. Some of the wounds crip-
pled him so that he can not get about without the use of a stick. Mr.
Stover brought to town last week and had fixed a watch which he picked
up at the battle of Wilderness thirty-eight years ago, which had been
running continuously ever since until right recently".
