Children of the Confederacy, Drew County, Arkansas

The information contained in the following list is from the individual applications of persons in Drew County who applied for membership in the Children of the Confederacy. All applications were to the Monticello Memorial Chapter, auxiliary to the Wm.F. Slemons No. 977 Chapter, United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC). Each application gives the date and place of birth of the applicant, the relationship to the Confederate veteran, sometimes a brief statement about the veteran, and the recommendation by two veterans or two members of the Mother Chapter. I have included below the information I felt would be of interest to genealogists. Most of the applicants were born in the mid-to-late 1910s, and the applications were made about 1930; some were made as late as 1944.
