Irene Triplett

It our sad duty to report the death of Real Daughter Irene Triplett, on May 31, 2020 in Wilkesboro, North Carolina at the age of 90.

Sister Triplett was the last federally pensioned dependent of a Civil War veteran. Her father, Pvt. Mose Triplett, served in both the Union and Confederate armies during the Civil War. After the Battle of Gettysburg, Triplett left the Confederate forces and joined the 3rd North Carolina Mounted Infantry, a Union regiment.

Sister Triplett’s father died a few days after returning from the 75th anniversary celebration at Gettysburg.
