Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of the membership applications and petitions for the S. D. Barron Chapter (234) of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. Also included are applications and petitions for the Iredell Jones Chapter (85) of the Children of the Confederacy which is an Auxiliary of the S. D. Barron Chapter. Most of the collection consists of applications or proofs that the applicants are descended from Confederate soldiers. The Daughters also recommended soldiers who fought in the Second World War be given awards, and some “memorandums of facts” arguing their worthiness are also found within. Those interested in the United Daughters of the Confederacy may be interested, especially those interested in these particular chapters, or anyone interested in Confederate heritage in the Rock Hill area. Of particular interest will be the applications for admittance which requires genealogical proof of lineage from the applicant to the Civil War ancestor. Anyone doing genealogy research of York County, SC families with Confederate connections would find this collection extremely helpful.


The Records of the Untied Daughters of the Confederacy, S. D. Barron Chapter were given to the Archives on August 9, 2019 by the York County Library via Jason Hyatt.
