in Lincoln county three children, each of whom became distinguished in war before attaing his twenty-seventh year; and also from among her accomplished daughters came the wives of Stonewall Jackson, Lieutenant General D. H. Hill, and Brigadier General Rufus Barringer. Ramseur, Hoke, and R. D. Johnson were born within a year of each other, and for distinguished services in the field were promoted and entitled to wear the coveted general's wreath on their collars. This same county gave to Alabama Brigadier General W. H. Forney, a gallant soldier, who is now, and for years has been, one of her most faithful and trusted members in the National Congress. Born and reared amidst such favorable and stimulating surroundings, it is not a matter of surprise that these young men should have been prompted by an honorable emulation to secure those prizes that were justly their own, for blood will tell.

neral, Captain Theodore S. Garnett of Virginia, to disband the men, and advise them to make their way to their homes in North Carolina and Georgia. Shortly thereafter I traveled South, accompanied by one of my men, but upon reflection I felt it my duty to return to Appomattox, which I did, and surrendered to the officer in command, General Gibbon. I had with me on the 9th only one staff officer, Captain Theo. S. Garnett. My ordnance officer, Captain Webb, a gallant young soldier from Alabama, being in charge of the ordnance train, had passed the courthouse on the evening of the 8th; Captain Coaghenson of North Carolina, my Inspector-General, had been dangerously wounded on the 5th near me, and while gallantly doing his duty, and my Aide-de-Camp, Lieutenant Holcombe, of Virginia, reported that he had been disabled by a collision with a trooper in a charge at Dr. Boisseau's near Petersburg, which occurred on the 4th of April.

Fell, of Newnan, Georgia, in a communication dated April 5, 1891, and published in the Newnan Herald, gives his personal knowledge of the escape of Captain Robert Cobb Kennedy, of Alabama.

His career was short, thrilling, full of daring, and its final end closed very sad. Captain Kennedy was, we believe, a Georgian by birth, and a distant re
