Fayetteville Observer, Dec. 16, 1861
At Meadow Bluff, Va., Nov. 10, Alexander Melvin, son of Arthur Melvin, Esq., of this county and private in Company F, 14th Regiment N.C.V. (24th NC Infantry) He is dead! No sentence, penned or spoken, could perhaps cause deeper grief or awaken dearer moments in the hearts of a doting family, and widespread circle of relatives and friends than this. The devoted son the affectionate brother, the warm, generous hearted friend, the noble young soldier, is no more. He had joined the Cumberland Plough Boys under his neighbor Captain Blacker and in July left, with his company, the scenes where his childhood had glided calmly and sweetly away, for the seat of war. The dread sequel is soon told: he is dead! He doubtless preferred that the blood which now lies stagnant in his pulseless veins, should have been poured out in his country’s cause, but he died an honored youth and fills a patriot’s grave, in a strange land.
