Confederate Memoranda on David Watkins, taken Virgina, circa 1861-1862.

David Watkins.-Born in Accomack County; lived there till he was twenty-one, then moved to Staten Island where he lived for seven years; then he came to Gloucester County and about four years ago went to Philadelphia. Has been engaged in the oyster and lumber business. Quibbles about the oath of allegiance. Says he wishes to live in the Union in peace. I recommend he be held as a prisoner.
