50th Virginia Infantry (CSA)
Ancestor Info
Name: Jackson ReedyRank: Private Company: D

I am the great, great, great grandson of Jackson Reedy, Private, 50th Virginia Infantry, Company D, 'The Wilson Rifles' (I have also seen them referred to as, 'The Grayson Hornets'. Jackson and his brothers Christopher and Andrew apparently all served in the 50th, Co. D for the duration of the war. Andrew died in the (Elmyra?) New York POW camp of pnuemonia. Jackson was captured and held POW for the final 5 months of the war in Delaware. After the war he returned to Grayson county, outlived one wife and had at least six children - my great, great grandmother being his eldest daugther. Jackson died February 1st, 1905 (age 77)and is buried in our family's section of the church graveyard at Shippey's Branch. We have at least one picture and a transcript of a letter he wrote to his father during his 4+ years on the 50th's campaign.
