Jubal is a distant cousin on my fathers side of the family. I found this out while attending an aunts funeral in Martinsville, Virginia where I was born. Funny thing about what you learn at funerals that you may never have had the opportunity to learn otherwise. A sad commentary of how many families now days only get together when there is a funeral. I wish I had spent more time talking to my relatives when they were still living. A lot of lost history that may now never be discovered. If you are still young stay in touch with your family members.

@Virginia-dave {s} post brought back memories of my Grandfather telling of how he was dragged along {horse & wagon} to Gen. Early's house by my Great Grandfather {Petersburg Artillery, Grahams Battery} where they would sit on the porch with other veterans while paying respects and telling stories with "the General".

Thus the non-de-site;

I bet those were some great stories.

No doubt that Early was a major historic figure in the American Civil War. Sad that history really suffered because of Early, and others like him who pushed the "Lost Cause" into the American psyche. Folk still suffer from that mentality today.😟

It is a shame. It is history study it and learn from it, and don't make the same mistakes. I believe that Lee understood this the best.

That is a beautiful home with high ceilings, plush furniture, and throw carpets. And the bookcase especially. I guess the upstairs was roped off? By the way, I believe some of the Hairston's by wedlock moved to Danville, Va. at some recent point, thinking I saw their business signage just after the Kuwait affair.

The day I was there the house was not open. I took the photos through the windows.
