On May 10, 2014, Beaufort’s Stephen Elliott United Daughters of the Confederacy Chapter celebrated Confederate Memorial Day at Beaufort National Cemetery. The chapter’s first service was held on May 10, 1910. This year’s ceremony included dedicating a new marker to the former unknown Confederate Soldier, Pvt. Haywood Treadwell, Co G, 61st NC Vol. Infantry. Previously lost records lead to his burial as an Unknown Confederate, but his identity was recently discovered by research specialist Penelope Holme Parker.
