The following information
was transcribed from applications of Confederate veterans for the Southern
Cross of Honor issued by the U.D.C. These applications are held by the
Arkansas History Commission in Little Rock. On each application, the applicant’s
name was listed, as were men who could vouch for him, along with UCV camp
names, numbers and officers. While this is not a complete list of
members for the camp, it is a list of camp members over a period of time
nonetheless. The years that a veteran was a member can be deduced
from seeing the range of years he is found. While a man may appear
in one year and not appear again for ten years shows he probably was a
member the entire time. The list was compiled from data on the applications
as written, which is the result in men appearing in some years and not
others. The handwriting on some was almost illegible so there may
some misspelling of names. While some had complete information
on Camp name, number and city, some were incomplete and their number and
city are unknown at this time.

To Remember To Honor To Serve
By: Glenn A. Railsback, III
PO Box 7226
Pine Bluff, Arkansas 71611
Some thirty years after the close of the War Between the States, two
groups of individuals were formed to Remember the Fallen; Honor the
Living; and to Serve those in Need. These are the Men in Gray that
served and those who fell in the service of the Confederate States.
As was typical of the day in the 1890’s, one was a group of men and
the other was a group of women, both with the same cause and objectives.
The Veterans of the Confederacy organized as “United Confederate
Veterans” and the wives, daughters, granddaughters and nieces organized
as “Daughters of the Confederacy”.
United Confederate Veterans
The Veterans of the Confederacy met at the Jefferson County Courthouse
on June 13, 1889 to organize and plan for the building of a Home for old
and disabled Confederate soldiers. The attendance was large, and was
composed of the flower of Jefferson County Confederates. M. G. Sennett,
of Bogy, was elected temporary chairman and Charles G. Newman of Pine
Bluff, Secretary. After the election Reverend Father John M. Lucey was
asked to invoke Divine blessing upon the organization, which was done in
an impressive manner.
Reverend Father John M. Lucey presented the objectives of the
Confederate meeting that had been held in Little Rock, and reported that
a number of Confederates met, organized temporarily, and took up
subscriptions with the view of building in Arkansas, a Home for
Confederate soldiers of the State. He stated that the meeting was
enthusiastic and a considerable sum of money was subscribed and that a
meeting of all of the Counties was called to convene in Little Rock on
July 4, 1889 for the purpose of organizing a state association.
As a result of the presentation, a motion was made that all Confederates
who desired to join the organization be requested to give the secretary
their names for enrollment. Seventy-four Confederates enrolled. Met L.
Jones then moved that a permanent committee on organization be appointed
by the Chair. The motion was carried and the following comrades were
appointed: Met L. Jones, Reverend John M. Lucey, J. M. Hudson, Thomas H.
Collier, P. G. Henry and Junius Jordan. The meeting was adjourned until
Friday evening June 21, 1889, at the Courthouse in Pine Bluff.
The veterans then left the room, many with sad faces, as they no doubt
thought of the long ago.
The committee presented the plan of organization at the meeting of the
Veterans on June 21, 1889 which called for the following: To organize
all of the members of the late Confederate Army now in Jefferson County
into a union of veterans for the following purposes.
Section 1. To preserve peace and good will among all the people of the
United States, to maintain the honor of its flag, to strengthen those
kind fraternal feelings, which exist among our comrades, soldiers,
sailors and marines who were united in our late cause, to perpetuate the
memory and history of the dead and to protect the living of our order
against want by needful help and protection, and to extend all needful
aid to the widows and orphans of those who have fallen or died.
Section 2. To maintain true allegiance to the United States and to the
States, with true fidelity to the constitution and laws of both, to the
discountenance of anything that tends to weaken loyalty, incites
insurrection, treason or rebellion, or in any manner impairs the
efficiency and permanency of our free institutions and to encourage the
spread of universal liberty, equal rights and justice to all men.
Section 3. To establish a union, promoting and fostering full fraternal
relations on a social basis, with the soldier, sailors and marines of
the union army in our late war, looking to a useful and pleasant
interchange of recollections of their lives, in confronting each other
on the various battle fields during that war, and to cement their
patriotic harmony, as it now exists throughout the land, so that the
soldiers of the South and the soldiers of the North, their sailors and
marines will stand as one grand army of the nation, fixed on its heroic
determination and courageous resolution to defend the United States
against the assault of any foe, foreign or domestic, and to carry her
flag whenever and wherever the authorities of the nation direct, or
Section 4. To cultivate fraternal relations with the federal
association known as the “Grand Army of the Republic” and kindred
Section 5. To provide a home for disabled and needy soldiers, sailors
and marines of the southern service in the late war, and means to
maintain the same.
Section 6. To urge upon the next general assembly of the state of
Arkansas the necessity and duty of providing this home’s succor and
support through the funds of the state, if the voluntary contributions
and the funds of the order are inadequate, and by some just system of
legislation to take care of the needy widows and orphans of our deceased
brothers in arms.
Any person may become an active member of the association who served in
the army, navy or marine service of the Confederate states or of any
state of the Confederacy, or of any organization in the Confederate
states or any State thereof, recognized by the military authorities of
either, provided such persons were honorably discharged from service by
discharge, parole or surrender, or in any other honorable manner.
The applicant for enrollment must pay to the quartermaster within ten
days after enrollment a fee of one dollar before his enrollment becomes
Unless a state association is formed and provides for representation of
deceased soldiers in this order by their children and for an honorary
roll for ladies who did acts of distinction in the southern cause, then
at some future meeting this order will provide therefor.
The officers of the order, shall consist of
A commander of the camp.
A second commander of the camp.
A third commander of the camp.
An officer of the day.
An officer of the guard.
A sergeant-major and
For the purpose of present organization the election of the officers
provided for in article five shall be held on the 21st day of June 1889,

quartermaster sergeant and sergeant major shall be appointed by their
At the meeting on the 21st day of June, 1889, the order shall select
nine delegates and nine alternates to represent it at a state meeting of
similar associations, to be held at Little Rock on the 4th day of July,
1889, and such delegates shall have all powers of this order in
effecting a state organization.
At the next meeting after the meeting on the 21st day of June, 1889,
there shall be formed the proper constitution and by-laws of the order,
and an executive committee of five shall be appointed to frame and
report the same to the order at that time and to do general executive
business when so directed, and that meeting shall be called by the camp
The first election under this order shall be by viva voce vote.
The name of this camp shall be J. Ed Murray Camp of Confederate
On motion of H. A. McCoy the report of the committee was received and
the committee discharged.
Daughters of the Confederacy
The Daughters of the Confederacy organized on March 15, 1898, and later
met on Saturday afternoon, March 26, 1898, at the Merrill Institute to
consider several suggestions as to the naming of their organization.
After considering the suggestions presented, they decided to name their
chapter David Owen Dodd Chapter No. _____. The ladies composing the
chapter numbered fifty-two, and the organizing officers were Mrs. B. E.
Benton, President, Mrs. H. A. McCoy, Vice President, Miss Sammie
Sennett, Secretary, and Mrs. H. P. Bradford, Treasurer.
Two articles of the constitution presented were:
Article 2. The objects of this association are educational, memorial,
literary, social and benevolent; to collect and preserve the material
for a truthful history of the war between the Confederate States and the
United States of America; to honor the memory of those who served and
those who fell in the service of the Confederate States, and to record
the part taken by Southern women as well, in untiring effort after the
war in the reconstruction of the South, as in patient endurance of
hardships and patriotic devotion during the struggle; to cherish ties of
friendship among the members of the society, and to fulfill the duties
of sacred charity to the survivors of the war and those dependent on
Article 3. Those women entitled to membership are the widows, wives,
mothers, sisters, nieces and lineal descendants of such men as served
honorably in the Confederate army, navy or civil service, or of those
persons who loyally gave material aid to the cause. Also, women and
their lineal descendants, wherever living who can give proof of personal
service and loyal aid to the Southern cause during the war.
The David Owen Dodd Chapter was approved by the State President,
Arkansas Division, U.D.C. and submitted to the United Daughters of the
Confederacy in Richmond, Virginia.
The charter was issued on April 2, 1898, and the David O. Dodd Chapter
was assigned Number 212. The chapter was authorized to perform all acts
pertaining to the purposes of the association and to enact for its own
government such By-Laws as may be deemed necessary, provided they
do not conflict with the Charter or Constitution of the Association of the
United Daughters of the Confederacy.
From the Meetings of the J. Ed. Murray Camp of Jefferson County
After the organizational meetings had been held, and after the State
constitution and by-laws had been adopted, the J. Ed. Murray Camp met in
Pine Bluff on October 11, 1889, in regular meeting.
The Camp elected delegates to the state board meeting that was to be
held on Tuesday, October 15, 1889. The committee of delegates to Little
Rock was directed to make a bid for the Home of Ex-Confederates to be
established at Pine Bluff or vicinity. Reverend Father Lucey addressed,
by request, the association and stated that the owners of Sulphur
Springs had made very liberal propositions for the location of the home
at that place. However, the Soldiers home was bought and established at
The meeting of June 4, 1890, determined that a reunion and basket picnic
in connection with the ladies auxiliary be held on July 18, 1890, at
Citizens Park in Pine Bluff and a general committee was appointed. The
invitation, which was printed, extended the following invitation “You
are respectfully invited to a Grand Barbecue and Basket Picnic, to be
given by J. Ed. Murray Camp ex-Confederate Veterans, on Friday, July 18,
1890, at Recreation Park, Pine Bluff, Arkansas.” The committee of
arrangements consisted of both the men of the camp and the ladies
On June 20, 1894, the J. Ed. Murray Camp met at the parlors of the Hotel
Trulock for the election of officers and for the purpose of considering
and making arrangements for the camp to become a member of the United
Confederate Veterans. The camp met again on June 21, 1894, and
delegates presented an account of $6.00 to Birmingham, R. M. Knox and J.
B. Trulock, for dues and per capita tax. The said amount being necessary
and which was advanced by the said comrades in order that the Camp
should become a member of the United Confederate Veterans of North
America. The account was allowed and ordered paid. Comrade’s Knox and
Trulock then presented the adjutant with the credentials and this Camp
is now on the roll and its number is 510 of said United Confederate
The seventh order of business of the meeting of the Camp on March 13,
1896, was the election of a sponsor for the Camp. After the ballot was
canvassed, Miss Sammie Sennett was declared duly elected and Miss Woodie
Johnson, Miss Sue Knox, Miss Edna Tucker, and Miss Fay Taylor were
elected maids of honor. Maid of Honor, Sammie Sennett, would attend the
reunion of Confederate Veterans in Atlanta on July 20-23, 1898, and
those attending would leave Pine Bluff over the Cotton Belt on July
In March of 1905, pursuant to special orders number four, J. Ed. Murray
Camp No. 510, U.C.V., met for the purpose of adopting the following
resolution, which was adopted unanimously:
Resolved that J. Ed. Murray Camp No. 510, U.C.V., endorse the action of
the State Senate of Arkansas in passing a resolution authorizing the
State Executive to turn over to the United Daughters of the Confederacy
the battle flags of the confederate soldiers, recently returned to the
state by act of congress.
That we request our House of Representatives of the State to concur in
the action of the Senate.
That it is the sense of this Camp that those flags be not used for any
other purpose than those in honor of the names and memories of
Confederate soldiers and on occasions purposely for and in behalf of the
heroes of that cause and in honor of the wives, mothers and daughters of
the Confederacy, who made the flags and committed them to the care of
those whom they sent forth to fight for their homes and firesides.
That it is the sense of this camp that on the concurrence of the House
on the resolution of the Senate and on its being signed by the proper
authorities, these Confederate flags be immediately placed in charge of
the president of the “Daughters of the Confederacy,” for care and
keeping by that organization, and that they be requested to have them
presented on the proper occasion by an ex-Confederate soldier, or by one
of their own number, to the official organization of the Arkansas
Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.
The United Daughters of the Confederacy turned the battle flags over to
the Arkansas History Commission in 1911. The AHC retained the flags
until 1960 when they were turned over to the Arkansas Commemorative
Commission at the Old State House. These flags have been preserved by
the commission and are on occasion displayed. There is a color booklet
describing the flags avaliable from the Old State House Museum in Little
It is interesting to know that the Arkansas Union Battle Flags were
returned to the State of Arkansas during reconstruction and it is not
known what happened to these flags. They have never been seen since.
Did the Republican administration of General Powell Clayton take the
flags when they left office after reconstruction? Did the newly elected
southern Democrats destroy them?
The last published record of meetings of the J. Ed Murray Camp found in
the ledger is dated Monday, July 21, 1911. Only thirteen members
attended the meeting, and the following resolution was adopted.
J. Ed. Murray Camp, No. 510, U.C.V., has recently lost by death, three
of its most devoted and ardent members - - General J. S. Bell, Captain
J. F. Burks and Major Charles Gordan Newman. These were sterling
representatives of the bravery and chivalry of the South. Now be it
resolved, That by the death of our three honored members this camp has
lost the support and strength of comrades whose lives were dear to us
all, and whose companionship will be a memory to cheer us as we meet the
last call of the Great Commander;
That these resolutions be spread upon the minutes and a copy be sent to
each of the families of our deceased friends and comrades and that we
extend the bereaved relatives our profound sorrow and sympathy at the
affliction that has befallen them.
That these resolutions be offered to city papers for publication and
that a copy also be sent to “The Confederate Veteran” at Nashville,
Tennessee, for publication. (Signed by: Junius Jordan, E. S. Maupin,
and John B. King.)
On unanimous vote it was decided to close the present record book and
that the same be placed in the hands of Comrade Dewoody as permanent
custodian and that he be instructed to purchase a new record book for
the Camp and from this date a new volume of records will be kept. The
adjutant was instructed to place the records of this meeting both in the
old and new record books.
A motion was then made recommending that the following comrades to
receive crosses of honor from the United Daughters of the Confederacy:
L. V. Bogy and M. C. Reynolds, both members of King’s Second Missouri
After a liberal discussion of the matter a motion was unanimously
adopted to hold future meetings of the Camp on the third Sunday of each
month in the court house promptly at 3 p.m. and the Daughters of the
Confederacy and the United Sons of Confederate Veterans and others
interested were invited by unanimous vote of the Camp to attend our
meetings. The Camp then adjourned.
