      Obituary:
      The Mirror, December 15, 1881. At his residence near Ebenezer
      Methodist Episcopal Church in this county on Dec. 2d, 1881. Mr. Conrad Virts, in the 91st year of his age. He was soldier in the war of 1812, and was honorably discharged. He was also a member of the Ebenezer Methodist Episcopal Church for many year and died in great peace, trusting in Christ. Many a weary itinerant preacher found comfort, shelter, and rest in his home.

      Notes:

      Veteran of the War of 1812, confirmed from the book: War of 1812: Virginia Bounty Land & Pension Applicants, page 304. Book shows that Conrad's Widow, Elizabeth received a pension as well. The book War of 1812 Pensioners, page 1762, shows Conrad served under Capt. J. B. Stephens, Company VA Militia as a Private.
