Abraham Billhimer - Private   
Abraham Billhimer of Keezletown, VA and his brother, Benjamin Franklin Billhimer, joined Co.I, 1st Virginia Cavalry during the Spring of 1861. Abe lied about his age in order to enlist and fight to protect his homeland of Virginia. Abe and Adam Koontz escaped capture near the end of the war after being pursued by a group of Union cavalry from Lacey Springs to Keezletown while on a reconnaissance mission. Billhimer and Koontz hid in the belltower of a church that stood in the SW corner of the future site of the Keezletown School parking lot.
Both soldiers avoided capture, however, they lost their horses
to the Yankees.
A short time later the 1st Virginia Cavalry was camping on the land of Mrs. Hile Billhimer. The ladies of Keezletown made fried apple pies and distributed them among the soldiers. As it turned out, each cavalryman received two pies. My Great-Grandfather, Abraham, ate one of his pies and put the other one in his tent for later. Upon returning to his tent, after a while, he caught another soldier, Harvey 'Harv' Sheets, eating his pie. Needless to say, a fight ensued and Harv bit off Abe's
middle finger at the knuckle on his left hand. In return, Abe gouged Harv in the eyes detaching one of them. From then on it is said that Harv was 'cock-eyed'. Both Abe Billhimer and Harvey Sheets are buried in the Keezletown Cemetery.
