It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of Glenda McWhirter Todd. She passed away on September 3, 2017 surrounded by her family. She was a historian, genealogist, and author who prided herself on being a descendant of Andrew Ferrier McWhirter of the 1st Alabama Cavalry, USV. Her work over the past two decades and her dedication to the 1st Alabama Cavalry has created a legacy that will last for years to come.

Her life's work has touched thousands of people through the years, and I am glad that I had the pleasure to work with her as long as I did. My hope is that her work will live on for years to come to educate and inspire a new generation.

Enoch Day is Dead

On May 29th at 8:30 pm the death angel called Mr. Enoch Day to the great beyond. He was born August 12, 1840, led the life of an average settler until the civil war when he joined the first Alabama cavalry Kilpatrick's division U.S.A. and fought through the Atlanta campaign and was with Sherman until the surrender in North Carolina, where he received an honorable discharge. While on the field of battle he fought with conspicuous bravery, standing after others had fled. At the close of the war he returned home and became one of Cullman county's best citizens. His death was due to cancer from which he suffered untold agony but bore it all like a true soldier. He married Miss Janie Anderson and unto them were born five daughters and two sons, all of whom are living except one daughter. Mrs. Day died a few years ago. Mr. Day was a member of the Baptist church, the I.O.O.F. and the Masons. The remains were laid to rest on Sunday evening at Bethlehem cemetery by the Odd Fellows. Rev. Smith conducted the funeral services. A Friend.
