The General William J. Hardee Camp #1397 of the Sons of Confederate Veterans Welcomes You!

We meet at 7:30 PM on the fourth Monday of each month at the former Historic Second Baptist Church of New Hope, Paulding County, Georgia.  This Historic Church is the beautiful White Frame Building at the intersection of the Dallas-Acworth Highway (Highway 381) and Bobo Road in New Hope, Paulding County, Georgia.  This is the same intersection where New Hope Cemetery is.

Our next meeting is Monday, October 22, 2018.  After a short discussion of Camp business, we will be honored to have Mrs. Donna Faulkner Barron Will speak on her book about her Father Roy Faulkner, Chief Carver of the Confederate Memorial Carving at Stone Mountain Park. The book is entitled  "The Man Who Carved Stone Mountain".

Donna Faulkner Barron is the oldest daughter of Roy Faulkner, Chief Carver of the Confederate Memorial Carving at Stone Mountain Park. Donna was born to Roy and Juanita in Crawford Long Hospital in Atlanta and was raised in Covington, Georgia with her three other siblings, Richard, the oldest and the only son along with sisters Judy and Patti. Donna is married to Ronald Peter Barron and they have two children, Jessica 29 and Peter 24. Donna completed her elementary and high school years in Newton County and furthered her education by attending Dekalb Area Tech in Clarkston, Ga where she completed her degree in Secretarial Science. Donna was now ready for the work force. She interviewed and was hired as a Stenographer for the Georgia State Labor Department where she worked for 5 years. Realizing that this career was ending, she moved back home and began her new adventure in life...being her dad's assistant. She helped compile records using her secretarial skills and in the mid 80's she found herself as the secretary to her dad who was the Curator of the Stone Mountain Carving Museum which was opened for a couple years on Memorial Drive. After the museum closed she and her dad parted their ways and she began her only family as her parents moved to McDonough, Ga.

Later on ..30 years later.. using those same secretarial skills she would have never envisioned herself as the co-author of the book.
