|Julius Redmond||USA Vets.|
81 graves have been detected at the Camp Jefferson Davis site. Using a 1893 map, GPS and Divining rods they were located. 113 unmarked graves about 3000 west were detected but most are believed to be Union and Confederate Vets. I also worked with the Jackson County Genealogy Society in exhuming and reburial of six 1848 USA officers from Greenwood Island. In 1848 we had three camps in Jackson County, Jefferson Davis, Lawson and Corrine (Dragoons).
