A soldier’s widow
Desires information in regard to her late husband, Norman McDonald, who was a private in Co. B, 3d Regiment NC Troops. The last she heard of him he was sent from his company about the 1st Nove. 1862 at Strasburg, Va to some hospital. Where, when, and how he died she has never been able to learn.
She begs the Virginia and NC papers circulation in Va. and the army to publish this notice in the hope that it may meet the eye of some one who will be able to give her the desired information
