Posted

CLAY COUNTY – Members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans Kirby-Smith Camp No. 1209 installed headstones on the unmarked graves of five Confederate veterans and one for unmarked grave of a veteran of the Spanish-American War.

The names on these headstones are common among the founding and longtime families of Clay County.

The headstones were for Schley H. Williamson who served with the 48th Georgia Infantry Confederate States of America; Mathew Mosley who served with the 11th Florida Infantry CSA; and, John Mosley who served with the 1st Florida Infantry during the Spanish-American War. These unmarked graves were located at Federal Hill Cemetery in the Oakleaf area.

At Peoria Cemetery in Doctors Inlet, headstones were installed for William J. Dickinson who served with the 1st Florida Cavalry CSA; William Henry Shepard of the 7th Florida Infantry; and, Ivey Williamson of the 3rd Florida Infantry.

The headstones were supplied by the U.S. Veterans Administration.

Kirby-Smith Camp No. 1209 is a heritage organization that focuses on preserving the history and legacy of those men who fought for the Confederate States of America.
