I am a professional photographer, by trade, as well as a published writer and poet, historian, and an amateur and hopefully to be a professional genealogist. I was a member of the Colonel Leon Dawson Marks Camp #1596, Shreveport, Louisiana Chapter of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Inc., and as of February, 2004, had been elected to the Office of 2nd Lieutenant Commander of the Chapter and served for two years. My entrance into the SCV was due to my Great-grandfather, on my father's side, Pvt. Robert Wilson Cope, 9th North Carolina State Troops, 1st North Carolina Cavalry, Company F, aka the "Cabarrus Rangers." Furthermore, I have recently found that my mother's father's father, Pvt. Andrew Phillipps, 14th South Carolina Infantry Brigade, Company C, aka the "Raiborn Company," out of Laurens County, Waterloo, South Carolina.

I have even more recently found that my mother's mother's father's father who was Joseph M. Davidson, born February 17, 1824 in South Carolina, died September 30, 1904, married to Charity, born December 20, 1825 in Florida, died March 28, 1906, enlisted as a Private in Company D, 6th Louisiana Cavalry. He went in when Charity was pregnant with 4th child, Carrie, middle sister of Joseph H. Davidson, my great-grandfather, who was born that year. The children, in order of birth, were: Joseph H., b. 1855, Julia, b. 1857, Monroe, b. 1860, Carrie, b. 1862, Armstrong, b. 1864 and L. Lee, b. 1867. Joseph M. had two brothers, Luther and John T. They were CSA soldiers and were married. Both of their wife's first names were Mary. One from Alabama, and the other from Texas. Luther had 4 children; William, b. 1858, James, b. 1860, Robert, b. 1862, and Verginia, b. 1865. So far, records indicate that John T. and his wife, Mary, did not have any children. All three brothers were captured during the latter part of the Red River Campaign where they were fighting and were released in Shreveport, Louisiana.

I married, on 4 July 2007, at the Pasig City Court House, one Nila Quico Delana, daughter of Rumolo Cuento and Maria Nadillia Quico Delana, from the Barangay of Balubohan, Municipality of Rizal, Province of Zamboanga del Norte, Island of Mindanao, Philippines. We stayed together for 41 days in the City of Manila from 31 May to 10 July. My lov
