Mrs. Edna McLeod of Ranburne turned 90 on October 29, and her family hosted a big party in her honor the weekend before. The birthday celebration was held at the “Party House” at Burns Lake in Randolph County. A very large number of family members and friends attended.

In addition to Mrs. McLeod’s birthday, another reason for celebration was her newly-approved membership as a United Daughter of the Confederacy. Her great grandfather John N. Robinson served in Company C 56th Regiment Georgia Infantry from Carroll County during the War Between the States.

Joining the Major General Patrick R. Cleburne UDC Chapter has become a family affair for the McLeod family. Daughter Joan McLeod Lovvorn of Woodland joined this UDC Chapter in March 2012. Her eligibility was based on the Confederate military service of her great grandfather Neal McLeod of Randolph County.

In June 2013 another daughter, Nancy McLeod of Ranburne, also was approved for membership. As of October 31, the two other daughters in the family have joined this UDC Chapter: Judy McLeod McWhorter of Wedowee and Sarah McLeod who lives in Florida.

The next generation is also applying for membership in Gen. Cleburne UDC. Membership for Ryland Elizabeth Lovvorn, Joan’s granddaughter, was approved October 31. Applications are now in progress for Tammy Lovvorn Conner, Taylor Conner and Marcie McLeod Gibson—all on the military service of ancestor Neal McLeod.
