Two more of Co. A. 4th Reg’t, Killed

Theodore Haberfelner, a young man formerly in the employ of Dorsch & Schafer, was killed on Sunday the 3d inst, near Fredericksburgh.  He was shot while on picket duty by a rebel, concealed in a tree.  His companions dispatched the rebel.  Haberfelner was wounded at the first battle of Fredericksburgh, and was at home but a short time since.

Frederick Hoffman, formerly in the employ of Reisig & Bro., was also killed at the late battle of Fredericksburgh, and Fred Spath, a long time employed at the Seminary was wounded in the thigh, by a musket shot, at the same battle.  All three of these young men joined Co. A. at its first formation, and have been in active service two years.
