For the Honor Roll Project at Nutfield Genealogy ~ Person County, North Carolina

"THE HONOR ROLL PROJECT is an effort to transcribe and photograph military honor rolls. The transcribed names make the soldiers available for search engines, so that descendants and family members can find them on the internet. It is a simple but very rewarding project."  If you would like to participate, leave a comment on the founder's blog, Nutfield Genealogy here, or an email at vrojomit@gmail.com. 
You can see the 2014 list at Nutfield Genealogy here.
 This is my first contribution to Heather Wilkinson Rojo's Honor Roll Project.

Person County Court House
Roxboro, Person County, North Carolina
According to Wikipedia Person County, located in the state of North Carolina had a population of 39,464 at the time of the 2010 U.S. census. The county seat is Roxboro and that is where I found these beautiful War Memorials yesterday.  I live twenty-five miles from the little town that has some of the most gorgeous period homes I have ever seen. My son-in-law works there as a fire-fighter. There are many friends and family members there and in Person and Orange counties who have connections on these War Memorials.
The front of the Court House was fronted by a semi-circle of memorials, from the Confederate Soldiers to the Vietnam War and the wars in-between.

Nearly 1000 soldiers from Person County fought for the Confederate Army during the Civil War. An impressive monument overlooks the city placed there by the Person County United Daughters of the Confederacy to honor Confederate Soldiers.

The granite monument below at the Person County Courthouse honors E. Fletcher Satterfield, who advanced the Confederate flag at Gettysburg, and it also names others from the area at that battlefield.
