Today we look at the cousin of John C. Breckinridge his name was John Breckinridge Grayson. Grayson's mother Letitia was a member of the Breckinridge family of Kentucky. Grayson's Step father was United States Secretary of War Peter Buell Porter. Grayson's step brother Peter Augustus Porter would also die during the war at the Battle of Cold Harbor Virginia. Grayson had only a brief career as a General during the war. About 6 yrs ago I was able to visit his grave in New Orleans.
