I found these Tar Heel soldiers buried in the Marietta Cemetery during my recent trip to Georgia. These Tar Heels died at the old soldiers home in Marietta.

I am Carl Vann Rich. Ruffin Van Collie was my great grandfather. He lived to be 107 years old. I am 70 years old and he died when I was 12 years old. I often visited at his home and remember the birthday events after world war II. I know he often attended the war reunions. My father was Ruffin Van Rich. We lived on farms about 5 miles apart.
