General Order #23
24 June 2011
Brothers, it is with deepest sympathy that I report another one of our nation’s treasured children of a Federal Civil War Soldier has passed.
Mary (Hayes) Carroll, 99 years young passed away 24 June, 2011 in Lee Summit, Missouri. She was the daughter of Private Samuel Hayes who served with the Forty Ninth Missouri.
On March 22, 2009 the Department of Kansas, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War honored Samuel for his service and honored Mary as a Real Daughter of a Civil War Soldier with a ceremony at her residence attended by friends and family.
She was a talented seamstress and along with a group of ladies from Duncan Estates made dozens of quilts and donated them to the Missouri Highway Patrol. Those quilts are used to wrap children injured in car accidents. The group also donated dozens of quilts to Children's Mercy Hospital for patients.
Those wishing to make contributions, in lieu of flowers, may do so to Vitas Hospice of Independence, 4041 S. Lynn Court Drive, Suite 300, Independence, MO 64055.
All charters, the National Web site, and membership badges will be draped in black from 24 June, 2011 until 24 July, 2011.
Ordered this 24th Day of June, 2011.
