Charles D. Jameson
Old Town

Gen. Charles D. Jameson died at his residence, in Oldtown, Thursday forenoon.  He was taken down with camp fever immediately after his great exertions at the battle of Fair Oaks, and, after partially recovering at New York, he was brought home, but has been gradually failing ever since.  He was a gallant and brave officer, and was highly respected and beloved by all the men under his command.  He was about 35 years old.
