Mrs. Weed was the wife of Bishop Weed of the Episcopal Diocese of Florida. Bishop Weed had served in the Confederate States Army in Company T, 7th Georgia Cavalry Regiment.
Julia was a member of the Martha Reid Chapter 19 of the United Daughter of the Confederacy and was present at the January 1896 meeting. She served as the first President of the Florida Divison in the years 1896-1900. Zealous for the expansion of the division, she called upon UDC members to take pride in their Southern heritage and stressed the importance of two things: gaining new members and attendance at division and general conventions. She performed her duties faithfully and set the division upon a steady course. In addition to bearing all expense of the office of division president, she donated $500 to completion of the Jefferson Davis Monument in Richmond, the first great project of the General Organization, and she frequently contributed to various other UDC projects in the name of the Florida Division.
In 1899 at the General Convention of the United Daughters of the Confederacy in Richmond she was elected the fifth (5th) president of the General Organization and served a term of two years, 1899-1901 (the title of President General was not used until 1906).
After Mrs. Weed's death, the Florida Division raised funds and placed a memorial window in St. John's Episcopal Church in Jacksonville. The church where Bishop and Mrs. Weed worshipped for many years. On Sunday afternoon, May 4, 1913, the memorial window to Julia McKinne Foster Weed was unveiled and dedicated. Aiding in the unveiling were Mrs. Weed's grandchildren and godson.
