Newspaper clipping in bible (There are others post 1920)

Wallie BRAUD (Picture included)

Many Attend Funeral of Young BRAUD

New Orleans Boy who Died at Training Station is Buried Here.

A large number of surviving friends followed the body of Wallie BRAUD,the 17 year old New Orleans boy who died at Great Lakes naval training station April 1, to Greenwood Cemetary Wednesday afternoon. The funeral was conducted from the residence of his bother, H. E. BRAUD,5356 Laurel Street, where the casket was taken on the arrival Tuesday night and where it was in state draped in the folds of the American Flag and guarded by six of his sailor comrades, who acted as pallbearers. He was given a soldier's funeral, representatives from the Washington Artillery, Naval Brigade and United States navy being present. As the cortege entered the cemetery the bugle called "taps." Father RICKEN read the funeral service and as the casket was placed in the tomb an officer of Battery B, Washington Artillery caught up the battle flag and unfurled it to the breeze while the bugle sounded the last call and the sailor boys stood at attention. W allie BRAUD was the son of Mr. and Mrs. L. P. BRAUD 3532 Constance Street and came from a family that always responded in their country's call. He was a pupil of Jackson School until about two years ago. When the Washington Artillery was called to mobi l ization camp last summer he was amoung the first to report to duty, but was rejected by the federal examiners on account of being under weight. He returned home despondent, and his parents, thinking the change would be beneficial, sent him on to a visit to a brother in Galveston. But the longing for service was too great and he enlisted in the navy, was sent to Great Lakes training station and had been there less than six weeks when death claimed him. Besides his parents, he is survived three sis ters, Mrs Nettie Braud Ewing, Mrs John Fitzpatrick, And Miss Louise Bondreau, and three brothers, Messrs. Henry E. Braud of New Orleans, A.P. Braud, United States navy, and V.E. Braud of Galveston.

Family History

Note: We knew S.C.B. (1860-1917) as "Aunt Lottie" who was head of the family after Rochelle's murder, since she was the oldest.

Red Oak Camp was Lovick ROCHELLE'S (1754-1809) plantation (and afterwards Blair Plantation) on Lynches River, comprising lands in Kershaw and Chesterfield Counties. The mansion (built by Lovick ROCHELLE) was burned by troops of Sherman's 17th Corps.

Log Town Cottage or "Farm" was Rochelle BLAIR'S (1821-1882) town house in Camden. He bought it in 1860 as a house in Camden for his wife. He lost it in the carpetbagger tax sales after the war. It still stands, now "Aberdeen," a Bed and Breakfast Inn, across fromt he Camden Archives.

Dixie's Retreat was Rochelle's postbellum home on Big Pine Tree Creek near Camden. It was a three hundred acre tract he purchased from James CHESNUTT, Jr. Behind the house, which he built there, was the gorge known as "the Precipice". The area is also known as "Paint Hill." The house burned in the 1930's. When he bought the tract, there was a house on the property which he named "Daisie" or "Daisie Farm". The family lived there until he built the house across the road known as "Dixie's retreat."
