CHRISTOPHER C.
Son of
Andrew & Louisa N.
BESSE,
Member Co. D. 7th Regt. Mass. Vet Vols.
Born Jan. 12, 1846.
Died at Millin, Ga.
Nov. 1, 1864.


His body lies in a stranger land,
Away from friends who loved him dear.
None to mark his grave with a friendly hand,
Or over his loved form to shed a tear.
In a southern prison he languished away,
A Mother's loved and only one.
But in her grief she hopes to say
FATHER, Thy will be done.
