"Confederate Soldiers with a Cleveland County Connection"
by Ned Cash
We have a problem, our
beautiful little library
has grown too small,
we need more space.
Please click on "Silent Auction" to learn more...
Several years ago our own Ned Cash, a local
re-enactor, member of of the Sons of Confederate Soldiers, history buff and the Post 82 commander
for our local American Legion, began wondering what happened to the men of of Cleveland County who
served during the Civil War.
Ned has documented 2700 names on his quest
to answer his question. He has decided to share
the information he has gathered so far with
researchers worldwide in the form of 3
volumes that may be ordered directly from
Broad River Genealogical Society.
Vol I: Abernathy - Greene, 232 pages, $21.00
Vol II; Griffin - Pannell, 232 pages, $21.00
Vol III; Parker - Young, 220 pages, $21.00
3 Volume set, $55.00
(Prices include both shipping & handling)
Ned is accepting additional data to be included in future editions. If your hero isn't included in one of these three volumes, Ned wants to know "what happened to him".

Charles Lattimore Elliott
10 generations of his
Elliott and Lattimore families.
It's my very sad duty to report that Charlie left us
on April 12, 2010.
He will be sorely missed by our members
who send their deepest sympathies
to his family.
We have family photographs, picture postcards, buildings
and landmarks from the counties in
our area of North Carolina. We also have a few we need
help to identify. Can you help, or do you have
photos to share?
This little photo is from my own family archives and showcases the only 3 grandchildren at the time. From left to right is my Dad holding me, Uncle Hugh holding cousin Michael & Dad's brother Robert holding cousin Annette. I thought it time to share this information as we've now lost two of these wonderful gentlemen. The photo was taken in 1948 & featured 3 WWII veterans who came home with so much horror still in their minds, but full of hope for the future. We represented that future. We lost Uncle Hugh in July 1980, and Uncle Robert just this past December. Please take the time to drop by their findagrave memorials & pay your respects to members of the "Greatest Generation" who helped pave the way for your freedom. We miss them terribly. Judy
