Company E
Napolean M. Aston - Private   
Napolean was born August 1839, to William S. Aston and Dorinda Taylor Aston, probably in Powhatan County, Virginia. He enlisted as a private in Company E, the Powhatan Troop, 4th Virginia Cavalry, on 23 May 1861 at the Powhatan Courthouse. Powhatan County, Virginia. The term of his enlistment was one year. He was shown as present from June 1861 to February 1862, as absent with leave for March and April 1862, and as absent without leave for May and June 1862. He appears on the Roll of Prisoners of War at Fort McHenry, Maryland, sent to Fortress Monroe, Virginia, for exchange by order of Major General Wool, 27 October 1862. The Roll is not dated, but states that Napolean was captured at Shepherdstown on 30 October 1862. Shepherdstown, Virginia, was a major crossing on the Potomac and was the route Lee’s Army of Virginia, which included the 4th Virginia Cavalry, took in withdrawing from Sharpsburg/Antietam in late September 1862. Presumably, Napolean was captured while on picket duty, although by 30 October the 4th had moved south.

After the war he married Rosa A. Wilkinson, the daughter of Major Wilkinson of New Kent County, Virginia on 15 October 1866. I have not found any records showing children were born to this marriage, nor do I know what happened to Rosa.
