Another Civil War artifact
Compiled by the estimable and most worthy JIM, also of brilliant intellect and a real good talker. -CM
From the News, January 29, 1902:
It will be remembered that the late Col. Frank Wolford, of this place, died leaving a number of war relics in the possession of his family. Among the selection is a pair of epaulets which were worn by Gen. Zollycoffer and which came into Col. Wolford's possession soon after the battle of Mill Springs. Maj. Whithorn, of Columbia, Tenn., hearing that the epaulets were here, has written the family, asking that they be turned over to Mrs. Octavia Zollycoffer Bond, a most worthy and estimable lady of Tennessee, who is a daughter of the dead Confederate General.
Thursday, January 19th, 2012, will mark the sesquicentennial of the death of General Zollicoffer; he was exactly four months short of his 50th birthday.
An article in the October 18, 1910 Hopkinsville Kentuckian described Mrs. Bond as "a woman of brilliant intellect and a most interesting talker." She was also the former sister-in-law of Nat Gaither, the grandson of Adair County's much beloved physician, Dr. Nathan Gaither. The younger Nat, who was partially reared in old Adair, first married Mary Dorothy, Gen. Zollicoffer's daughter and Mrs. Bond's sister.
