McLeod also celebrated being a new member of the 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 Oct. 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.
