PHILIP PENDLETON COOKE (MARIA PENDLETON, PHILIP, NATHANIEL, HENRY, PHILIP) was born October 26, 1816 in Martinsburg, Virginia, and died January 20, 1850.He was admitted to the bar in 1836 and was married the next year to Anne Corbin Taylor, daughter of Judge Nelson Burwell. In 1845 he removed to "The Vineyard," an estate of one thousand acres near Ashby's Gap, Va., where he was known as the "Nimrod of the Shenandoah."

He was graduated at Princeton in the class of 1834, then took up the study of law with his father, and was engaged in the practice of his profession before he had attained his majority. He had, however, little love for legal work, preferring literature and field sports, to both of which he was devoted. Prior to his death he had become famous as the greatest huntsman in the Shenandoah Valley. His reputation as a poet is a most creditable one; at an early period he published a number of poems in the "Knickerbocker Magazine," and was also a frequent contributor to the "Southern Literary Messenger." He was stately and impressive in manner and a brilliant conversationalist. His only publication in book form was "Froissart Ballads, and other poems," Philadelphia, 1847. At the time of his death he was publishing serially a romance entitled "Chevalier Merlin." His short lyrics, "Florence Vane," "To My Daughter Lily," and "Rosa Lee," were very popular. The first named has been translated into many languages, and has been set to music by celebrated composers. Among his tales are "John Carpe," "The Crime of Andrew Blair," and "The Gregories of Hackwood."

SGT. ROBERT HENRY GREGG GAINES was a "Confederate Medal of Honor" recipient. The highest honor the South could bestow on one of her own soldiers. Confederate Medal of Honor Citation: Sergeant Robert Henry Gregg Gaines, 23rd Alabama, Confederate States of America, Battle of Bakers Creek, Mississippi, 16 May 1863: "With his brigade repulsed and in disarray, having fought most of the morning against overwhelming numbers of the enemy intent on flanking the left of the army, Sergeant Gaines nevertheless went forward again, joining Cockrell's and Green's brigades in the last desperate attack of the day. Driving the enemy more than a mile, the advance recaptured the guns of Waddell's Alabama Battery. Seeing that the gun crews had been decimated by casualties and capture, Sergeant Gaines single-handedly turned a 12-pounder howitzer on the retreating enemy. Working the gun unassisted, he swabbed, loaded, primed, aimed, and fired the piece more than a dozen times, all with telling effect. The superior strength of the foe, however, eventually stopped the Confederate advance and in a desperate counterattack, shattered the left of the Army, Yet despite this disaster, Sergeant Gaines with the aid of several volunteers, withdrew his piece from the battlefield in good order."

Today, Sgt. Robert Henry Gregg Gaines' Confederate Medal of Honor is on permanent public display at Confederate Memorial Park, near Mountain Creek in the heart of Alabama.At the end of the war Sgt. Gaines rose to the rank of Captain.

Sgt. Robert Henry Gregg Gaines wife OPHELIA HESTLE. As the sun set in the winter sky, William Norris folded his grandfather's war jacket and presented it to his grieving grandmother. Ophelia Gaines returned to Alabama after her husband's death, passing away at Fairfield on 18 Dec. 1923. Family tradition holds that a short time before her death, she visited many of the places she and her husband held dear... and that at one of them, perhaps beside a wooded path under the pines and oaks where the whip-poor-will still clearly calls she buried the jacket of gray in the red clay of Alabama that her husband had so loved.

ROBERT was an influential citizen of Wytheville who rendered efficient service to the Confederate cause as an officer of the Sixth Virginia cavalry. Major Pendleton went into the Confederate service as a member of the Liberty Hall volunteers, as an infantry company, but did not serve on account of poor health. On March 19,1862, he enlisted as a private in the Sixth cavalry regiment, and during the remainder of the war was identified with the brilliant record of his command, under Stuart, Fitzhugh Lee, Munford, Rosser and Payne, While a private he discharged for some time duties of a captain, and in the fall of 1864 he was commissioned first lieutenant, regular Confederate States Army, from which he was promoted major, just before the surrender at Appomattox. During his service he participated in forty-four cavalry engagements, and five horses were killed under him, but he was never wounded, his only serious injuries being occasioned when he was thrown to the ground by the killing of his horse at Strasburg, during Jackson's Valley campaign, and ridden over by the cavalry and knocked senseless. He did not surrender at Appomattox, but escaped from that field with his brigade. After the war Major Pendleton resided in Jefferson County, W. Va., until 1871, when he removed to Wytheville. There he has served as magistrate and under Gov. O'Ferrall's administration received the appointment of director of the State asylum.
