Joe Cato

(Article in Confederate Veteran) Joe Cato, a Confederate soldier with a gallant record, died recently at his home, in Rome, Tenn., at the age of sixty-eight. He was born and lived all his life on the old farm in Smith County owned by the Cato family for several generations. He worked on the farm as a boy, and at the age of sixteen ran away to join the Confederate Army. He enlisted in Captain MOORE's company, of Paul ANDERSON's Regiment, 4th Tennessee Cavalry, which was mustered in at Lebanon, and which regiment was known during the war as "Paul's People". He went through the entire four years of the war unscathed until, in a last slight skirmish at the close of the war at Bentonville, N. C., he lost his left arm. He was captured three times during the war, escaping each time. The last time he was captured was during Sherman's march through Georgia; and when the prisoners were being taken up the Ohio River on a steamboat Mr. Cato jumped overboard and swam the Ohio River, escaping in safety to the Kentucky side, where he secured a horse from a farmer and went back to his regiment, where he remained till the close of the war.
Mr. Cato was married late in life to Miss Mamie Grigsby, and from this union there were six children. The deceased is survived by three sons and two daughters. The third daughter died only a few months ago. Comrade Cato was a life long member of the Christian Church, a kind parent and loving husband, and was esteemed by all who knew him.
