Last Roll, James Stokes

Post date: May 5, 2014 4:14:26 PM

It is with a heavy heart that I share with the SCV membership that James Stokes, a member of the Jefferson Davis Birth Place Camp Camp at Fairview KY, has passed.

Many of you knew "Uncle Jimmy" through the SCV, Cobb's Battery, or the Friends of the Jefferson Davis State Historic Site and we all will most assuredly miss him.

I know the Commander of their Camp will post more on this as things are finalized.

But, considering myself as a friend of "Uncle Jimmy" and someone who looked to him as a excellent role model, I wanted to ask that the SCV members take a moment of silent reverence in honor of a Brother Confederate who has go on ahead of us to help prepare the field there for us.
