Paul Whaley's Ancestor Honored. A Virginia SCV Camp, Black Horse Camp No. 780, honored an ancestor of our own Reenactor Liaison, Colonel Paul Whaley of the 33rd Alabama Reenactors group. This camp identified and marked the grave of Major David Whaley of the 5th Texas Infantry Regiment. Paul found out when they contacted him for permission to do this. The camp's website is http://www.blackhorsecamp780.com/
Mr. Herbert Allen of Fatman's Passes Away. If you've ever helped distribute Dixie Butts for our annual fundraiser, you remember Mr. Herbert Ethan Allen of Fatman's BBQ, who always had our butts ready to go on the day we had to distribute them. He was the 78-year-old father of Fatman's owner Ken Allen, and passed away peacefully in his favorite recliner on Tuesday,16 July. We will miss him this year.
