Birth: Sep. 23, 1846
Clarke County
Virginia, USA
Death: Feb. 9, 1909
Virginia, USA

CSA, Company A, 43rd Battalion Virginia Cavalry, ARMY OF NORTHERN VIRGINIA

Born Sept. 23, 1846 in Clarke County.

John was shot in the side of the head on July 30th, 1864. Lucky for him, he was only grazed from Yankee bullets who were shooting down upon Mosby's men from a high bank along the Potomac. John was taken back across the river to the Virginia side where his wound was dressed by Dr. Sowers at a nearby farmhouse. He boarded at the home of Hugh Water's mother, south of Upperville.

He earned his law degree from University of Virginia after the war, and practiced law in Leesburg. After the war, he resided in San Diego, California, practicing law as a partner in the firm of Alexander and Hughes. He became the State's Attorney General in 1895. He married Emma H. Hughes and had five children. He died February 9, 1909.
