Chapter 2587 UDC Welcomes New Members

(Franklin) — President Mary Lane had the honor of inducting two more new members at our November meeting.

Sisters Sharon Denney Frost and Pam Denney Rogers were approved and they received their membership certificates at our meeting.

Sharon proved her lineage through their Great-great grandfather William Andrew Faver who fought in Company G, 7th Regiment, Georgia Infantry.

Pam proved her lineage through their Great-great-grandfather Lemuel M. Gladney who served in Company F, 19th Regiment, Georgia Infantry.

Proving different ancestors allows them each to now do a supplemental and get a second bar!

The United Daughters of the Confederacy is the outgrowth of many local memorial, monument, and Confederate home associations and auxiliaries to camps of United Confederate Veterans that were organized after the War Between the States.

It is the oldest patriotic organization in our country because of its connection with two statewide organizations that came into existence as early as 1890 — the Daughters of the Confederacy (DOC) in Missouri and the Ladies’ Auxiliary of the Confederate Soldiers Home in Tennessee.

The National Association of the Daughters of the Confederacy was organized in Nashville, Tenn., on September 10, 1894, by founders Mrs. Caroline Meriwether Goodlett of Nashville and Mrs. Anna Davenport Raines of Georgia.

At its second meeting in Atlanta, Ga., in 1895, the Organization changed its name to the United Daughters of the Confederacy.

The United Daughters of the Confederacy was incorporated under the laws of the District of Columbia on July 18, 1919. The objects of the organization are Historical, Educational, Benevolent, Memorial and Patriotic.

Membership is open to women no less than 16 years of age who are blood descendants, lineal or collateral, of men and women who served honorably in the Army, Navy or Civil Service of the Confederate States of America, or gave Material Aid to the Cause.
