Here’s a page from the ledger of the Bell County [Texas] Ex-Confederate Association which was organized in 1888. An original member was Uriah Gould, late Corporal in Company B, 4th Texas Infantry. Born in New York State, he was an early Wisconsin pioneer, Mexican War veteran, Sharpsburg survivor, and with wife Ann Elizabeth the father of 20 children in 21 years.

The ledger is online from The Portal to Texas History courtesy of the Lena Armstrong Public Library, Belton.
