Deborah Epperson Machen of Jacksonville is the newest member of the Major General Patrick R. Cleburne Chapter 2632, United Daughters of the Confederacy. Her eligibility was based on the military service of her great-grandfather, William Irvin Epperson, who served in Company E 10th Confederate Cavalry. The certificate was presented by president Lynda Lowery.
UDC supplemental certificates were also presented to chapter members Betty Taylor Bunn and Anne Aiken Vaillancourt. Bunn proved the Confederate military service of her ancestor, George W. Taylor, in the 17th Alabama Infantry. Vaillancourt is a proven descendant of John Marshall Akins and Duncan Cooksey, both of who served from Georgia in the CSA Army.
