Waveland May 11 – Col. Casper Budd died yesterday afternoon about 4 o’clock at his home west of this place at the advanced age of 89 years. The funeral occurred this afternoon, the interment being at the Presbyterian Cemetery.  Col. Budd was one of the most loyal men in the state. During the war he was Colonel of the 2nd Indiana Legion and did great service in suppressing disloyalty in Montgomery, Parke and Fountain counties. He terrorized the copperheads down about Wallace and prevented many high handed outrages. His name was a household word and state owes his memoray a debt of gratitude hard to estimate.
