•  "It seems fitting to record in the Last Roll the name of Miss Virginia Clementine Clay, of Huntsville, Ala. She was not born until 1862, but by inheritance and association she had lived a life as devoted to Dixie as any comrade who fought in the battles. She was for a long while editor of the Huntsville Democrat, and its columns were ever loyal to the cause of the Southern people. Her two sisters, Susanna and Eloide, and the two brothers, William Lewis and J. Winters Clay, will ever cherish the memory of this noble member of the family. Francis Tappey wrote for the Democrat a sentimental and beautiful sketch of Miss Virginia." - Roots Web
