One of our main missions as descendants of Confederate Veterans is to maintain and restore lost and forgotten Cemeteries, where they rest.

We reclaimed the old forgotten cemetery  between Rusk and Alto that has two CSA Vets buried in it.  Ken McClure, Jim Campbell, Morris Byers, Haley, Tracy, Tammy and Josiah Unger and Mike Brennan, You are all to be commended for a great job for preserving history in our area.  Four hours of steady work had defeated the brush and briars.  Ken also added a weather-proofed sign that contains a list of everyone buried at the cemetery.






On this date we began a reclamation project to clean all of the old weathered C.S.A. markers at Old Palestine cemetery 3 miles east of Alto. There are many more we will clean in the near future.



















We cleaned three Confederate markers for three Peacock boys that served from Alto that were unreadable and covered with many years of exposure to the elements. 










On this date we cleaned 3 Confederate markers at Shiloh Cemetery, 2 miles west of Alto. Two of them were Holcomb boys who were brothers of Ken's  G,G,G, Grandad Captain George C. Holcomb of the Tenth Texas State Troops  buried at Shiloh.









On Sunday April 16,2006 we completed one of our projects that our camp had been working on for over three years as we cleaned and cleared out the old forgotten Wiggins cemetery family plot in the Lake Striker area. We also placed two new military markers that our camp ordered over a year ago for the two Wiggins brothers buried there. The two markers were for Captain James F. Wiggins and his brother Lt. William C. Wiggins who both served in Company F, 7th Texas cavalry . A special thanks to Mr. Shelley Cleaver who is a decendent of the Wiggins.
