‘Smyth Blues.’ from the Times-dispatch, June 4, 1905.

Muster roll Company D, Fourth Virginia Infantry.


Editor of the Times-Dispatch.
Sir,—No part of your excellent paper is more interesting to the remnant of old Confederate soldiers now living than that portion you have so kindly dedicated to them and the stories they tell; for after all, it is the man behind the guns who knew best the fierceness of the conflict while it raged around him, and the story he tells brings us nearer the scene of action and impresses it in detail upon our minds more effectually than general history will ever do.

Since arranging and sending to Major Robert W. Hunter a duplicate of the enclosed list of members of Company ‘D,’ Fourth Virginia Infantry (Stonewall Brigade), it has occurred to me to send it to you and ask you to, some time or another, give it a place in the Confederate column of your paper. Its publication is desired not alone because it gives the names enrolled on Orderly Sergeant's book, but because it embraces information of some who are dead and others living, which will be intensely interesting to many widely scattered since the parting at Appomattox in 1865.

Most respectfully,


A. G. Pendleton, captain; major 1862; resigned; died in Roanoke, Va., 1902.

James W. Kennedy, first lieutenant; retired 1862; died in Tennessee after the war.

A. E. Gibson, second lieutenant; captain 1862; killed near Groveton, Second Manassas.

J. J. Bishop, first sergeant; died from wounds Second Manassas.

J. M. Fuller, second sergeant; wounded Gettysburg.

F. W. Rider, third sergeant; died after war.

J. M. Thomas, fourth sergeant; promoted captain.

D. B. Kootz, first corporal; wounded Kernstown.

I. M. Lampie, second corporal; wounded Spotsylvania Courthouse; died since war.

H. T. Killinger, third corporal.

T. A. Oury, fourth corporal; wounded First Manassas; dead.
