[1 July 1862] “Dr. Barnett and wife spent last night with us I went to town this morning busy preparing to leave for my Regt. at Columbus, Mississippi. Sis Mary and Sis Clara, Mollie Robertson, Bee Robertson, Mit McCurdy, Babe Matthews and Mrs. Dalkert came over this evening to fix up a box for the boys [soliders] ...  / [20 July 1862]  ...

Upon the death of Mrs. Dalkert in Nov 1902, an article by son Charles V. Dalkert (then-editor) appeared in The Waterloo Times (Waterloo IL): "... When the war broke out between the North and South it found them in Oak Bowery, Alabama where Mr. Dalkert was drafted into the Confederate Army. Being greatly in sympathy with the other side, he left his wife and infant daughter in good hands and escaped to St. Louis on a boat and when he was almost ready to enlist on the other side, the war ended. By this time, Mrs. Dalkert had rejoined him, but had many hardships in crossing lines, etc. ... She personally interviewed General
Lee (believed to be Stephen Dill Lee) about getting though the lines and how she trembled when he in thunderous tones he answered 'Well, if you can get through, all right. You have my consent.'" - Family stories tell that she crossed into TN by wagon
