Southern Memorial Association

The Military Order of the Stars and Bars (MOSB) would like to know if there are any chapters of the Southern Memorial Association still in existence other than the one in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The Southern Memorial Association was founded in the early 1870’s to maintain the graves of Confederate soldiers. Please post a comment if you can help with any information. Thank you!

    From what I can find out about the organization, it has always been one organization, in Arkansas. However, there is a reference to the Southern Memorial Association, in Lynchburg, Virginia at the Old City Cemetery, something called the “Scatter Garden.” It may be another cemetery that they oversee, but perhaps there is a local chapter in Lynchburg. There is a link to the website below

  2. Thank you, Brian. I have passed the information along.

    I was wondering if anyone had any bio’s or other information on my grandmother; Pauline Ashe Livingston Rackley. She was born and raised in Charleston, SC and was, maybe, a past President of the Southern Memorial Association.

    Anyone having any info please pass on to me.
