“Uncle” Jeff Mabry, Jeff was reportedly 110 years old when he died. He was a native of Georgia. He married in 1920 at the age of 101. “Uncle” Jeff was proud to be known as the “head chicken thief of the 3rd Texas Cavalry,” and the only Black Confederate in Hopkins County, Texas. He went to the war with Brigadier-General, Hinche Parham Mabry and served faithfully with him until the surrender in May 1865. He was cared for and provided food, a roof over his head, and medical care by Confederate Veterans. He belonged to a local UCV Camp and attended the monthly meetings. He also attended all the reunions up until a year before his death in 1929. His death occurred during the 1929 reunion in Charlotte, NC. The above photo is from the 1914 reunion in Jacksonville, Florida.

The C is probably a mis-transcribed O as there was no one by the name of "C. Gregory" in Mobile.
