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.

Gone from us on earth to that happy land above, Where There’s no storms, no snow nor rain. Where there is no heartaches or worrtoil-but that land of sunshine the land of that of mighty Love. Someday we will meet you in that land beyond the blue, in that land of peace and there is no aches and pain, on this earth you face we’ll see no more, but on that shore. The Lord saw best take you from us, to the home beyond the blue. Though we are lonesome and sad, but all laugh and fun here on earth we had, we will remember you.

Your son
John Hall
