Our longtime partner, Wilson County Public Library, recently dropped off a very interesting ledger for digitization. Now on DigitalNC, the ledger for the Jesse S. Barnes Camp of the United Confederate Veterans dates from 1906-1923 and contains minutes, rosters, and other information .
Camp members faithfully recorded their activities, changes in membership, as well as the passing of many of their Camp members. There are also several documents related to the national United Confederate Veterans organization. Especially of interest to genealogists are 11 sheets containing the “Record of Lineal Descendants of Confederate Soldiers,” collected in 1918 by a Wilson chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.
