Diary of Betty Herndon Maury - January 12, 1862

Sunday afternoon Jan 12th [1862]

Cousin John Minor died at two o’clock today. Johnny and I had been with him for an hour or two. We had no idea he was so near his end. Capt Lewis and Capt Braxton came in just before he breathed his last. His mind had been wandering all the morning and towards the last he was insensible. He was sitting up in his chair when he died.
