Confederate Soldier & His Wife Exhumed and Moved
Members of the Old Brunswick Camp recently coordinated the exhumation and re-burial of Pvt. Nicholas Hardaway Epperson and his wife, Nancy Jane Taylor. The project was spurred on at the request of fellow SCV compatriot, with the A.P. Hill Camp, Frank Towberman and his wife Fran, the great-granddaughter of Pvt. Epperson.
All the activities took place on the weekend of Nov. 1st and 2nd, 2003. The graves, which were located in an overgrown area on a dead end street in Alberta, were exhumed on Saturday morning with approximately 20 compatriots and family members in attendance. Local contractor, Wallace Tucker generously donated his and his son's time along with a backhoe to assist with the task. The husband and wife were then transported to New Hope Church in Danieltown where they were reburied in the Epperson family plot.
On Sunday afternoon, Nov. 2nd, a memorial service was conducted and over 80 people were in attendance, including 3 of Pvt. Epperson's granddaughters. Several OBC members participated in the project and our camp received a nice donation from the Towberman family.
