HORSLEY, Simeon - (from The Rogers Daily Democrat) Capt. Simeon Horsley died at the home of his brother, N.S. Horsley, just west of town at 6 o'clock yesterday evening of dropsy of the heart. In his death passes away another important personage in the making of the history of the Lost Cause. His efficient service under Gen. Forrest won for him distinction and honor. He was in his 69th year and leaves many friends and relatives to mourn his loss. Funeral services were conducted at the residence of his brother, N.S. Horsley, at 2 o'clock this afternoon by his special friend, J. Wade Sikes, and his remains laid to rest in the family cemetery nearby. He leaves only one child, Mrs. H.A. Oakley, and to her and his four brothers and other relatives and friends the Democrat tenders sincere condolence.
