Article from the 'Confederate Veteran' magazine,
dated Feb., 1922.
Capt. JOHN H. BURCH, commanding the Camp at Roxboro, N.C., writes that Camp Jones No. 1206 U.C.V. was organized in 1885 with about 300 members, of whom there are now about 50 left. He also says:" I left Roxboro, in Person County, N.C. on June 6, 1861, with 103 men, all dead now except three. The first year of the war we served as volunteers under General Floyd, of West Virginia; in 1862 we belonged to Company H, 24th N.C. Regiment, of General Matt W. Random's brigade. We were in all the leading battles of Va. and Md. My father had 8 sons in the Confederate Army at the same time, all being wounded, and one was killed at Chickamauga. All are dead now but myself. Person County furnished about a thousand men for the great cause of the sixties, of whom only about 75 are left."
