Death of Capt. J. W. Dougherty
A letter was received in this city yesterday announcing the death of Capt. J. W. Daugherty, Co. I, First West Virginia Infantry which took place at Annapolis, Md., on Wednesday last. Capt. D. was wounded at Lynchburg during the Hunter raid and fell into the hands of the enemy. He was paroled and came on to Annapolis, Md. a few weeks ago and was rapidly recoverning from his wound when he was attacked with chronic dairhea of which he died. Only a few days before he died the deceased wrote a letter to a friend in this city in which he spoke very hopefully and expected to be at his home in Bridgeport soon. Capt. D's friends, upon hearing of his death, telegraphed to have the body embalmed and sent home, but they have since been advised the remains were interred near Annapolis on Friday last.
