|Death: ||Oct. 4, 1915|
Andrew Broaddus Jones farmed the land that was roughly equivalent to that of the Kingswood Subdivision off of Harrison Road today. His is the only marker in this family plot.
His home sat along the second line of the Confederate defense for the battle of Fredericksburg and troops from both sides encamped at various times on his farm and used the waters of Hazel Run to drink, for cooking, for bathing, and perhaps even for the occasional cool dip. About 100 meters to the west of his family farmhouse, they were quickly producing a railroad cut for what was to become the Central Virginia Railway. This cut, unfinished during the seige of Fredericksburg, was primarily used as a route of march for the defending troops into and out of the town of Fredericksburg.
He served in Company E of the 9th Virginia Cavalry and, "after a short spell in the hospital" he served as special messenger for General Henry Fitzhugh Lee. His parents were James Jones and Agnes H. Brown, also of Spotsylvania County.
The history of his Regiment and its engagements read like a map of the ebb and flow of the Civil War in the East. This unit was not only frequently engaged with the enemy, it was also the eyes and ears of the Army of Northern Virginia.
Andrew never earned a stripe during the war, but from what I know of the man, that's not why he joined in the first place. It's also obvious that he could be trusted with the most difficult and time-sensitive tasks for a key Confederate field general. In fact, he only mustered out of his unit when it was surrendered at Appamattox Courthouse and everybody was ordered to go back home and to take up life (in his case, farming and producing children) where they left it.
