Company H
Jefferson D Furbush - Private   
Killed in action during storming of Ft. Kennon on James River below Richmond in May 1864. This was a little known action where Fitz Lee tried to rid the neighborhood of the fort which was garrisoned by US colored troops. Fitz took the best equipped men from the companies of his command and set out to eliminate what was considered to be an affront. He had one of his officers offer terms of surrender but the commanding officer of the fort reportedly said to give Fitz his compliments and tell him to go to hell. In addition to being well manned, the approaches to the fort were covered by ironclads just offshore in the river. It was a foolhardy assault and our boys were slaughtered. J.D. is most likely buried outside the fort with the rest of his fallen comrades. There is an annual reenactment at the site which is owned by one of President Harrison's descendants.
