Abstract

Description

The Confederate Graves Survey Archive of the Texas Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans consists of surveys of cemeteries throughout Texas, and portions of Oklahoma and New Mexico.

Finally, 17 boxes contain "Veteran Files" that document each veteran by name in "last name, first name, middle initial" format. An index that cross-references each of the collection series (Grave Surveys, Unit Files, and Veteran Files) is included, as are institutions to surveyors on how and what to document while conducting surveys. Born: 1843, Died: 1920, Age in 1861: 18 | McGregor Cemetery, #65, McLennon County, TX. Vol. 1, Page 5. Notes: Contains photograph of grave marker.
