Abstract
Record scrapbooks kept by Daisy Neptune, historian of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, General Jenkins chapter of Parkersburg. The five scrapbooks consists of material concerning the chapter's history and the lives of local Confederate veterans and their families. Included are the service records of individual soldiers, chapter applications containing much genealogical data, obituaries and death notices of veterans and family members, and news clippings of organization activities. Also included are applications for UDC "crosses of honor" and grave markers. One volume contains personal narratives by chapter members containing biographical sketches and family reminiscences of war-time experiences of both soldiers and civilians. Although primarily concerning the Parkersburg area, the volumes hold information dealing with all of West Virginia.
