Our Military Past
(This page is a work in progress, as I don't have all the info I need readily available YET).

Our family has a long list of men who served for our countries' freedom.
May God bless them all and keep this under his watchful eye.

One of our great-grandfathers was a Confederate Commander during the Civil War, namely, Captain WESLEY NEWELL FREEMAN, 25th North Carolina Infantry Regiment, Company C, CSA. Through him a male descendant is eligible to become a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and the Military Order of the Stars and Bars, while a female descendant is eligible to become a member of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.

Wesley married MARY LUCINDA WELCH, grand-daughter of Lieutenant Colonel ROBERT LOVE, a Revolutionary War soldier serving in Virginia, who married MARY ANN DILLARD; through him a male descendant is eligible to become a member of the General Society, Sons of the American Revolution, while a female descendant is eligible to become a member of the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution. Through these two ancestors, regardless whether you are a male or female descendant, you are eligible to become a member of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants.
