Sgt. Maj. Sydnor Bailey – [Plot B-63; Barely Readable] ADOPTED

 

Sydnor_Bailey

Born in Westmorland County, VA, on January 28, 1844. Took part in all the battles of the Army of Northern Virginia. At the battle of Gettysburg was wounded in the head in the third day fight --- “Pickett’s Charge,” but was only absent long enough to have my head bandaged by the Surgeon, Dr. Newton, who was afterwards Bishop Newton of Episcopal Church in Virginia.

 

Col. Brockenborough [See listed below] who commanded the brigade and myself were the last men to cross the Potomac River on Pontoon Bridge at Falling Waters after Gen. Pettigrew was killed. Was captured at Sailor’s Creek when generals Ewell and G.W.C. Lee were trying to reach the Army of Northern Virginia under Gen. R.E. Lee. After that I came to Baltimore and followed the occupation of traveling salesman. When finally my health broke down I came to the Maryland Line Confederate Soldiers’ Home at Pikesville.

 

When I pitch my tent on the eternal Camping Ground, I can truthfully say that I am proud that I was a Confederate Soldier and have no excuses to offer anyone.

The (Baltimore) Sun, 9 May 1902-News Article

            VETERAN CUTS HIS THROAT

Severs Jugular Vein And Bleeds To Death Before Help Comes

 

   Temporary aberration of mind caused ** despondency over his inability to secure work and worry over ill health is thought  to have been the causes which ***** Jacob K. Bales, a Confederate veteran, to cut his throat with a razor yesterday morning in a woodshed in the rear of his home, 1*** North Gay street.  The head was almost severed from the body, the gash extending from ear to ear.

   Only once had Mr. Bales intimated that he had any intention of ending his life.  *** that in an indirect way, remarking ******  said, that he thought he would ** **** out of the world than in it.  Yesterday morning he arose about 6 o’clock and went downstairs, telling his wife that he would open the house.  She noticed that but one window had been opened and immediately suspected something was wrong.  Going out to the shed, she saw the husband leaning against the wall, blood pouring from the gash which had severed the jugular vein.  Clasped in his right hand, which hung nerveless at his side, was a razor.  Calling to him and receiving no reply, Mrs. Bales ran Back to the house and ******** Mr. Louis Ritter, who occupies part of the house.  When they returned to the shed Mr. Bales was dead.   He lay face downward on the floor, his head resting against a stone which he had struck in falling.  ****** Scally was called and declined to hold an inquest.

   Mr. Bales was 70 years old last December.  He was born in Martinsburg, W. va., and when the war broke out he decided to throw his fort*nes with the South.  ** enlisted in Company A of Forrest Cavalry Regiment at Memphis, Tenn., in August 1861.  He was with that ****** until  186* participating in several engagements, among them the assault on and capture of Fort Donelson in February 1862.  In 186* the company was transferred to the Second Kentucky Cavalry, commanded by Captain W***ward.   While with this command Mr. Bales saw hard service through the eastern section of the country.  After the surrender at Appomattox the regiment was paroled at Washington, Ga.  To the day of his death according to his wife, he remained an irreconcilable.

   After the hostilities had ceased he went to Keyser, w. Va. where he married Miss Joanna Grundy, who survives him with one daughter, Mrs. I**re Wilson, of Atlanta, Ga.  For many years he was engaged in the hotel business in Kentucky and West Virginia until about 1* years ago, when he came to Baltimore.  Lately he ******* for a crockery house selling asbestos ware.  Last October he was badly hurt about the knee in an accident.  The injury had troubled him ever since and interfered with walking.

   His wife said yesterday she had noticed that he had been falling for some time and that there were periods when he acted very peculiarly.  Some time ago Mr. Bales wrote a short account of his career while in the army.  This he wished to be published after his death that people might know who he was.

   He was a member of the Confederate Veterans Association which, it is thought, will have charge of the funeral.

There were others who had stood here before us-we have no doubt of that- men and women of intelligence and refinement.  There was a bright fire glowing on the hearth, and a tete-a-tete was drawn up in front.  The parlors were divided by a red gauze, and in the back room stood a handsome rosewood piano with pearl keys, upon which the prisoner of the house, Mrs. G., and her friends, had often performed.  The walls of the room were hung with portraits of friends and others-some in earth and some in heaven-one of them representing a formal daughter of Mrs. Greenshow, Gertrude, a girl of seventeen or eighteen summers, with auburn hair and light blue eyes, who died some time since.  In the picture a smile of beauty plays around the lips, and the eyes are lighted with a strange fancy-and as is often seen in the eyes of a girl just budding into womanhood.

 

On the east wall hangs the picture of Mrs. Fanny Moore, whose husband is now in our a—y, while the walls of the back room are adorned with different pictures of the men and women of our time. Just now, as we ar examining pictures, there is a noise overhead-hardly a noise-for it is the voice of a child, soft and musical.

 

“That is Rose Greenshow, the daughter of Mrs. Greenshow, playing with the guard,” says the lieutenant, who had noticed our distractment.  “It is a strange sound here; you don’t often hear it, for it is generally very quiet.”  And the handsome face of the lieutenant is relaxed into a shade of sadness.  Thee are prisoners above there-no doubt of that-and rosy be the tones of this young child have dropped like the rain of spring unpon the leaves of the drooping flower.  A moment more, and all is quiet, and, save the stepping of the guard above, there is nothing heard.

 

The Sixteenth street jail has been an object of considerable interest for months past to citizens as well as visitors.  Before the windows of the upper stories were “blinded” the prisoners often appeared at these points, and were viewed by pedestrians on the other side of the way; but since the “cake affair”of New Year’s Day the prisoners have been forbidden to appear at the windows, and the excitement instead of having been slayed, has been still further increased.

 

The first person incarcerated at the prison was Mrs. Rose O. H. Greenshow, as she signs herself.  She was arrested on the 11th of Augsust of the  last year and has been confined in the prison ever since.  Her husband was formerly employed in theState Department in this city.  She is a woman of letters and was born in the South, although brought up in Washington.  She is confined in her own house in one of the upper stories, and has the attendance of a servant, besides the company of her own daughter, an interesting child of some twelve years.  Besides those confined here were Mrs. Phillps, her sister; Mrs. Levy, and two daughters, Misses Fannie and Lena. Mrs. Phillips is a Jewess and her husband married her Savannah, Ga.  Mrs. Levy was a widow, and her husband, who was formerly in the army, died. Her two daughters are finely educated.  These latter, were, after being confined six weeks, sent to Fortress Monroe.

 

Next in turn comes Mrs. Betty A. Hessler, who was born and reared in Washington.  She possessed the least education of any woman ever confined in this prison.  Her husband is a southern man.  She is fascinating in appearance, but not much decision of character.  She was released on parole by order of the Secretary of War.

 

Mrs. Jackson, the mother of the assassin of E____worth, has also been confined at this point.She was incarcerated but two days and nights. She has now gone South.

 

Miss Lilly Mackie, a daughter of Mackie, a clerk in one of the departments, and belonging to one of the most respected families of Washington, was also confined here for two months.

 

Mrs. M. A. Onderdonk was arrested in Chicago some months  since, and after being confined here six weeks, was released on parole.  Forty dollars were given to her to pay her expenses back to Chicago, but instead of going there she went to New York.  She was last heard of at St. Louis.

 

An English lady, Mrs. Elena Lowe, who was arrested at Boston, and whose son was with her, having come with a commission in the rebel army, has also been confined at this institution.  The son afterwards sent to Fort Warren, and she returned to England.

 

Besides the above, there were some eight or ten  persons  arrested at Alexandria and in this city, whose names are not remembered and who, after being confined at this prison, were shortly afterwards liberated, on taking the oath of allegiance.

 

Miss Ellie M. Poole, alias Stewart, was arrested and brought to the prison on the 11th of August 1861. She came from Wheeling, where after having been confined for some time in the prison there, she made her escape by tying the sheets together and letting herself down from the prison window.  She has been in communication with the rebel leaders in Kentucky, advising them to make certain changes in their  plan of operations.  When arrested the second time, within ten miles of the enemy’s line in Kentucky, 87,5?0 of unexpended money, furnished by the rebels, was found upon her person.  Miss Poole is yet in confinement at the Sixteenth street jail.

 

Among the number yet confined here is Mrs. Baxley, formerly a resident of Baltimore.  She was arrested on the 23rd of December.  She had just come from Richmond, and had been in conversation with Jeff. Davis from whom she had obtained a commission in the rebel army for Dr. Brown.  She is, as she represents herself, a very explosive woman, and it was from this fact that her arrest took place on board of the boat while approaching Baltimore from Richmond.  She has refused to sleep under a blanket marked “U.S.” ever since her confinement here.

 

A report that the cake sent to Mrs. Greenshow, on New Years, came from Mrs. Douglas to whom Mrs. G. sustains a relationship of aunt, is a mistake. The cake was sent by a party well known to the government, upon whoma strict watch is kept.

 

To-day (Wednesday) the three last named persons will probably be sent to jail on old Capitol Hill-an escort of the Sturges Rifles, under command of Lt. Shelton, being prepared to accompany them.

Discussion of the Commission Relative to State Prisoner

“ Mrs. Augusta Heath Morris, Mrs. Rose O.N. Greenshow and Mrs. C.M. Baxley are to be conveyed beyond the lines and to give their parole not to return north of the Potomic until permitted by the Secretary of War.”

 

The (Baltimore) Sun Paper, 22 April 1862

The Female Sympathizers

It is stated that the female prisoners, Greenshow, Baxley and Morris, still linger in the Old Captiol prison.  Mrs. Morris has not yet completed her preparations for her departure to Dixie.  The others are ready and willing to go.  The residence of several females in St. Louis, who have been in the habit of cheering Confederate prisoners as they passed along the streets, have been placed under military , and the occupants to remain quietly at home.

 

The (Baltimore) Sun Paper, 29 May 1862

“There are now held in the old brick Capitol ??? prisoner-103 of whom are prisoners of __, the rest being State prisoners.  The three feminine prisoners, Mrs. Greenshow, Mrs. Morris and Mrs. Baxley, are still there.  All prisoners are, it is said, in good health, except such as were sick when committed.”

 

The (Baltimore ) Sun Paper, 2 June 1862

 Female State Prisoners-On Saturday evening Liet. C.M. McCullum arrived in this city from Washington, having in charge Mrs. R.O. N. Greenshow and daughter, Mrs. Morris and son and Mrs. Baxley, who for some time past have been confined in Washington city as State prisoners.  They stopped at the Gilmor House until yesterday afternoon, when they started for Fortress Monroe on the steamer.  They will be sent to some point within the Confederate lines under a flag of truce.

 

The (Baltimore) Sun Paper, 10 June 1865

Arrest of a Female-  Mrs. C.P. Baxley was arrested yesterday morning. By Col. Woolley, by order of Col. Lawrence, at the dwelling No. 356 North Eutaw street.  She was taken to the Provost Marshall’s office and subsequently to Barr’s hotel where she is placed under guard until further order from the War Department.  The charges against Mrs. Baxley are for treasonable actions of a serious nature.  It will be recollected that she was arrested in this city in the latter part of 1861 and went South, but subsequently rearrested and again imprisoned.  She was released about two weeks since.  The charges against her, it is stated, are made on account of conduct on her part in the past week.

George_W_Berry

Mary C. Wells, daughter of Edward Wells and Mary A. Burk, married George W. Berry in Baltimore in the year 1866. George W. Berry was born in Virginia (as were his parents) in the year 1842. While little is known at this time about George W. Berry’s parents or early childhood, much is known about his military service, a discussion of which follows.

 

George W. Berry’s Military Service

 

By April of 1861, sizable armies had gathered around the Federal Capital at Washington D.C. and the Confederate Capital at Richmond, Virginia. George W. Berry, 19 years old, was among the Virginia Volunteers waiting in Richmond to be organized into companies.

 

 The month of April had brought substantial gains for the Confederates. Federal forces abandoned Harper’s Ferry on April 18th, and it was quickly occupied and held for a time, by Southern forces. On April 20th, the Federal Naval base at Norfolk fell into Confederate hands. One week later, on April 27th 1861, George Berry was enlisted in Richmond by J.B. Baldwin, for a period of one year.

 

Berry waited in Richmond until May 17th, 1861 when the 15th Regiment Virginia Infantry was organized into ten companies, A to K. Berry was assigned as a private to the 15th Regiment, Company H. The 15th Regiment was accepted into the service of the Confederate States on July 1, 1861. Records show that Berry was present at the company muster for the periods July-August, September-October, November-December, and January-February, 1862.

 

On April 25th, 1862 the 15th Regiment, Virginia Infantry was reorganized with eight companies. Companies F and K refused to reorganize and were soon afterward disbanded by a special order of the Secretary of War.

 

On April 26, 1862, Private Berry was promoted from the ranks to lieutenancy, becoming 2nd Lieutenant George W. Berry. A statement of accounts signed by George Berry, verifies his receipt of officer’s pay for the period April 26 to June 30 1862, (2 months and 5 days) totaling $173.33. On June 28, 1862, Lt. Berry signed a petition, along with other company soldiers, at Groves Wharf Virginia, requesting to be transferred to Colonel John H. Richardson’s Regiment of the Wise Brigade. Prior to the regiment reorganization, Richardson had served as captain in the 15th Regiment and Berry had therefore served under him.

 

Almost two months later, August 29, 1862, the Second Battle of Bull Run (Manassass) was won by Lee and Longstreet. The Northerners were driven back in rout upon Washington. This Union defeat led President Lincoln to reinstate McClellan to the command of the Army of the Potomac. (He had removed McClellan earlier because of his poor performance.)

 

Lee followed up his advantage won at Bull Run, with his first invasion of the North, pushing as far as Frederick Maryland. However, McClellan pressed forward and wrested the initiative from Lee by arracking and defeating a Confederate force at the three gaps on the South Mountain between Frederick and Hagerstown on September 14, 1862.

 

Lee fell back into a cramped position along the Antietam Creek, near Sharpsburg Maryland. Berry’s 15th Regiment, Co. H was among those under the command of Lee, encamped along Antietam Creek at Sharpsburg.

 

After a delay, McClellan struck the Confederates on September 17, 1862. This was to be the single bloodiest day of the entire war. In one day, 12,140 Union soldiers were lost (out of a force of 69,000) and Lee lost 13,724 of his 52,000 men – 26,134 men lost in one day. Second Lt. George W. Berry was among the casualties that day at the Battle of Sharpsburg (Antietam). He suffered fractures in both thighs, was captured and taken prisoner. He was paroled in Maryland and traded in a prisoner exchange at Aikens Virginia on November 8, 1862 and returned to Richmond. He was admitted to the officers’ hospital in Richmond on March 19,1863 and released to hir private quarters on April 4, 1863.

 

On June 11, 1863 he was placed on detached service as an enrolling officer in Richmond. Eight months later, On February 17, 1864, the Confederate Secretary of War signed an act establishing an Invalid Corps. Therefore, on May 3, 1864, 2nd Lt. Berry petitioned General Pickett for a certificate of disability for retirement. He resigned his command in Company H on July 23, 1864, becoming a member of the Invalid Corps assigned to his private quarters in Richmond.

 

Six months later, in early 1865, Generals Grant and Mead laid siege to both Petersburg and Richmond. Finally when his line of dwindling forces was pierced, Lee was forced to evacuate both Petersburg and Richmond on the night of April 2nd – 3rd. An 88 mile pursuit along the Appomatox River ensued, until the Confederates, detained at Amelia Court House awaiting food supplies, were badly beaten at Saylor’s Creek and Five Forks. When Lee’s final attempt to break out of the encirclement of Federal troops failed, he surrendered at Appomatox Court House on April 9th, 1865. George W. Berry surrendered in Richmond on April 20, 1865, taking the oath of allegiance from Lt. Col. Smith. Berry then left Richmond and set out for Baltimore.

 

Woods Baltimore City Directory, 1867-68, atates that in those years he lived at 672 Saratoga Street, and lists his occupation as printer. It was in Baltimore that he met and married Mary C. Wells. Together they had at least seven children: Pearl I. Who died at the age of eight months, Edward Wells, born in 1869, Mary born in 1871, Eugenia, born in 1875, Loretta, born in 1880, James Raymond, born in 1889, and Robert E. Lee, born in 1891. When the Census of Population was taken on the fifth day of June 1880, George W. Berry and his family lived on the north side of Lexington Street at number 449. The Berry’s had already lost their first daughter, Pearl. However with them in the house at that time were Edward, age 11, Mary, age 9, Eugenia, age 4, and their daughter Loretta, who had been born that previous January. Also with them was Mary (Wells) Berry’s father, Edward Wells.

 

George W. Berry listed his occupation as printer. It is therefore possible that he met his wife, Mary, through her brother, Nicholas B. Wells, who was also a printer in Baltimore. Edward Wells Berry was later to take up the occupation of his father as well. In the year 1880, son Edward and daughter Mary were attending school. Mary, their mother, stayed at home with Eugenia and the infant Loretta.

 

George W. Berry died in Pikeville, Maryland at the age of 67, on October 7, 1907. There is reason to believe that he died at the Maryland Line Confederate Soldiers Home. The primary cause of death was general debility and the second cause was paralysis. His death certificate lists his place of birth as Richmond, Virginia.

 

Of the six Berry children (excluding Edward Wells Berry), a measure of facts are known about four of them. Mary never married and died at the age of 26 on March 26, 1897. Eugenia married a man named Braun and lived at 742 ½ West Baltimore Street, where at the age of 27, she died on June 25th 1902. The cause of death was pernicious anemia and aschemia from which she had been “ailing” for six months. James Raymond, born in November 1888, died after ten months on August 22, 1889. The cause of death was marasmus, a term which is seldom used now and means generally a “failure to thrive.” It was used to describe the condition of children who did not grow or “thrive” irrespective of the cause. Robert E. Lee Berry, undoubtedly named by George W. Berry out of his admiration for the General under whom he had served and fought, was born in July 1891. He died 37 days later on August 26, 1891 of marasmus and convulsions. It is possible that Mary Berry’s advanced age (she was about 45-46 years old at the time of the children’s births) could somehow explain their failure to survive. All four children are buried in New Cathedral Cemetery.

 

In the year 1891, at the age of 24 or 25, Edward Wells Berry married Annie M. Fitzpatrick, the daughter of Patrick Fitzpatrick and Catherine Cecelia Tangney.

Judge John White Brockenbrough (father of John Bowyer Brockenbrough) established the Lexington Law School in 1849, giving the Introductory Address on October 31st of that year. Brockenbrough was born December 23, 1806 in Hanover County, VA.  He studied law at Judge Henry St. George Tucker’s law school in Winchester, and became Commonwealth’s Attorney for Hanover County. Brockenbrough was appointed to the federal judgeship for the Western District of Virginia in 1846.

 

In 1852 Judge Brockenbrough was elected to the board of trustees of Washington College. During the Civil War the judge held office as Confederate States judge of Western Virginia.  In 1865 Brockenbrough  was instrumental in the successful offer to General Robert. E. Lee of the Presidency of Washington College.  In 1866 Washington College President Robert E. Lee invited Judge Brockenbrough to affiliate his law school with Washington College.

 

The school was known first as the School of Law and Equity, then as the Department of Law and Equity. During this period, Brockenbrough continued as the sole professor in the law school, but he was not considered to be a member of the college faculty.  When complete merger occurred with the college in 1870, the School of Common and Statute Law was born and Brockenbrough was made a regular faculty member,  In 1873 Brockenbrough resigned as a result of a salary dispute. He died February 20, 1877.

The Sun Paper, 3 August 1883

Major John B. Brockenbrough, who for a number of years has been residing in Liberty, Va., has recently removed to Baltimore.  Major Brockenbrough served with marked distinction as an artillery officer in the Confederate armies in Virginia. The Rockbridge artillery was raised chiefly through his efforts.  Gen. Pendleton being elected captain and Major Brockenbrough first lieutenant.  In the fall of 1861 the Baltimore Light Artillery was organized and Brockenbrough became captain of it.  The battery was in nearly all the battles in Virginia in the year 1862 under Jackson in the Valley and subsequently under Lee.  At Sharpsburg Gen. Jackson placed eight guns under Maj. Brockenbrough at a critical point where the infantry had been almost destroyed, and the artillery after a desperate engagement with federal infantry saved the left centre of Lee’s army.  Again at Fredericksburg Jackson placed Major Brockenbrugh with twenty-four guns near the centre in apprehension of a heavy attack, which came with great fury, and Brockenbrough’s guns were reduced to three, holding a position that a strong force of Confederate infantry had been driven from.  Major Brockenbrough was terribly wounded in this battle, and being permanently disabled was assigned to duty in the corps of engineers.  He was promoted through the instrumentality of General Jackson, who took special pains to call the attention of the Confederate War Dapartment to him, and who exerted himself personally to secure his promotion as a field officer of artillery in his (Jackson’s) second corps of the army of Northern Virginia.  Major B. is a son of the late Judge W. Brockenbrough, of Lexington, Va., a distinguished lawyer and judge.
