The Major General Patrick R. Cleburne UDC Chapter 2632 of Heflin recently honored Mr. Buren Smith, a World War II veteran of Cleburne County. He was accompanied to the bestowal ceremony at Classic on Noble by his daughter, Dr. Mary Alice Smith of Gainesville, Ga.

Smith was eligible to receive the United Daughters of the Confederacy cross of military service for serving in Troop G, 8th cavalry, U.S. Army during World War II. He is a lineal descendant of Barton D. Smith who served in the War Between the States in Company K, 30th Regiment, Georgia Infantry. On behalf of the Cleburne UDC Chapter, Jo Howard of Oxford and Lynda Lowery of Heflin conducted the bestowal ceremony.

Entertainment of Scots-Irish music from the 1860’s was provided at the event by Glenna Boyd Caldwell of Ft. Payne. She played a musical instrument call a Bouzouki, much like a guitar but with a different sound.
