Company G (Shriver Greys)27th Virginia Infantry Regiment.The 27th Virginia Volunteer Infantry Regiment was an infantry regiment comprising only eight companies. The regiment fought mostly with the Stonewall Brigade of the Army of Northern Virginia.
The regiment was organized in May, 1861, and accepted into Confederate service in July. The men were from the counties of Alleghany, Rockbridge, Monroe, Greenbrier, and Ohio. During the war it served under the command of General T.J. Jackson, R.B. Garnett, Winder, Paxton, J.A. Walker, and W. Terry.
NOTE-the following info is from FAG #47733009. My inf Alphonso S. Allen was born in 1831, died in 1904, a farmer. He was a soldier of the Confederacy, serving in "Stonewall" Jackson's brigade and suffered all that a soldier can suffer and live, wounds, in battle, capture and imprisonment. But the wounds healed, his ten months' imprisonment at Point Lookout brought him naught but chagrin and sorrow that he could not be with his comrades in the field of action. After the war he returned to the farm and passed his after years at his home in Augusta county. He married Frances A. Wallace, born in Rockbridge county, Virginia, near Lexington, in 1832, died in 1894, daughter of Jesse D. Wallace. There in the fertile valley of the North river the Wallaces were long seated and there he youth was spent nearby the two famous Virginia institutions, Washington College, now Washington and Lee University, and Virginia Military Institute, founded in 1839, seven years after her birth. Here, too, are buried the great soldiers, General Robert E. Lee and "Stonewall" Jackson, under whose command her husband marched, fought and suffered, as did his brothers, David and Bartram S. Allen, the latter giving up his life early in the war.
Children of Alphonso S. and Frances A. Allen: William Edwin, of further mention; Charles Ware, born at Rockbridge county, Virginia, in 1863, now a member of the law firm, Allen & Walsh, of Charlottesville, of which he is ex-mayor; Walter G., born in Augusta county, Virginia; Emma C., now deceased, married James F.
