Children of the Confederacy

Children of the Confederacy is an organization for both male and female descendants of those who honorably served the Confederate States of America during the Civil War. Sponsored and supervised by the United Daughters of the Confederacy, children under the age of 21 who meet the same genealogical requirements as the Daughters of the Confederacy are eligible for membership. The purpose, goals, and activities of the Children of the Confederacy are much the same as those of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. Pride in one's heritage, a willingness to give to others, and a sense of responsibility are but a few of the lessons the organization seeks to instill in its members. There are 23 chapters of the Children of the Confederacy in North Carolina, including chapters in Butner, Charlotte, Concord, Fayetteville, Jacksonville, Lexington, Shelby, and Wilson.

about 65 years ago my Grandmother enrolled all of her grandchildren. She was Marie DuVal Johnston.
How might I find a record of my membership? Many thanks, Mary


Hi Mary,

Thank you for visiting NCpedia.

The article about the United Daughters of the Confederacy where have you left your comment is part of the NCpedia, the online encyclopedia of North Carolina, and unfortunately we do not have any additional information to help with your question.  I would suggest contacting the United Daughters of the Confederacy/Children of the Confederacy.  Their website is located at

Good luck!
