I live in Texas and am a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans Robert E. Lee Camp #239 and the Order of Confederate Gray Honor Guard as well as working with the SCV Graves Registery. I am interested in all aspects of Graveyard, Gravestone care and cleaning and Family history. I enjoy finding those long lost forgotten graveyards. Special attention always given to our Confederate Veterans. "Lest we forget in our hearts they perish not" Deo Vindice
Lee May - Macdonia Cemetery Hi: Do you have any more info about Lee May. I have been to Macedonia twice and taken all the May stone photos, but have never found Lee. Look on web site called cemeteriesonly.com - go to Macedonia cemetery - see what you think. I get that way about twice a year. Hey, I am a member of the United Daughters of the Confederacy - unusual - I joined the Nathan Bedford Forrest Chapter in Cicero, Indiana. Unusual I know since my husband and I live in Tennessee, but out roots are in Indiana - my great great grandfathers - Louisiana and Indiana Quaker fought each other at Shiloh. Say what you want, General Forrest had an excellent war record. Best Wishes,
Killough Disregard my last message. I had taken a couple hundred pictures at Mount Zion and thought I remembered that it was standing upright but when I looked a picture closed I realized it is still on ground. As the kids would say "my bad".
RE: Samuel J. May Hi: I am a member of the UDC and have conducted the Iron Cross ceremony here in Tennessee for a sister member who has passed - it was on her bucket list to honor her great grandfather. I chose to join the Nathan Bedford Forrest chapter in Noblesville, Ind. They are so active and my husband and I are originally from Ind. Note that I took several May family pictures and put them on the site. Week Christmas, we had a reenactment of the battle of Sugar Creek - not far from me - Sugar Creek was officially the last battle in Tennessee as General Forrest fought to get his men home. Best Wishes.
