Samuel R. Jaques
Birth: Feb. 2, 1840
Death: Aug. 28, 1927

Bio provided by Riverside.

Jacques was originally from New Jersey and broke ties with his father after signing up with the Confederate Army at the age of 19. He was never wounded in service, though random bullets tore holes in his clothing and shoes during battle. When captured near Richmond, Jacques defiantly threw his sword into a river rather than surrender it to the Union Army. He was held prisoner for six weeks near Norfolk. After his release, he re-joined the Confederates and was commissioned as a Major. He became a grocer by trade after the war, and he operated teh Juliette Milling Company for more than 25 years.
