Miner's Journal - April 1, 1865



Henry Clay Graeff, 1st. Lieut. Company D 48th P.V. died in this borough on Wednesday last from disease contracted in rebel prisons. At the time of his death he was in the 21st year of his age.

He had been in the 48th Regiment since its organization and was known as thoroughly good soldier. His father Franklin is a member of the same company, and is now with his command. Henry was taken prisoner at the fight on the Weldon R.R. in September last, and was a prisoner up to a fortnight of his death.

At the time of his capture he was a Sergeant of his company, and was commissioned a lieutenant shortly after while he was in rebel hands. The remains of Lieut. Graeff will be interred tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock.
