Wasn’t he rather a knave with the ladies? I was surprised he ever married. I had been under the impression he had children but never married.
I thought he had a brood of illegitimate children and a lottery scandal.
Think he had a son also Jubal Early. Supposedly while the troops were resting after chasing David Hunter out of the valley, he visited with an old girl friend.
I'm acquaintances with a gentleman who says Jubal is his G-G-Grandfather by a woman with whom he apparently had an open antebellum relationship but never married. According to him there were several children, all of whom were recognized and bore the Early name. When the war and its aftermath came, they were packed off to various relatives just in case there was any Federal retaliation for events in Early's career like the burning of Thaddeus Stevens' ironworks on the way to Gettysburg and the order to burn Chambersburg in 1864. Early himself escaped to Cuba and then went on to Canada but fairly soon returned once he felt safe from prosecution. The old biography of him I reviewed here several months back described his flight but nothing at all about his offspring and very little about his publishing activities postwar.

I saw some where that after chasing Hunter after the Battle of Lynchburg Jubal rested the troops for a day and he spent time with a girl friend. But I don't know if it's true?
