My g-g-g-grandfather was a Pvt. in the 26th Battalion VA Infantry.  He lost a leg to artillery fire at the Battle of New Market, VA. Private James L. Honaker.

His brother, who was also in the 26th, was allowed to accompany him home. Private Frederick Styrus Honaker.

Their brother John B S Honaker was Cpl. in the 26th.  He was captured during the Confederate retreat from Droop Mountain, WV.  One of only 2 members of the 26th to be captured.  He was sent to Camp Chase, OH and then to Ft. Delaware.

Another g-g-grandfather was a member of Thurmond's Partisan Rangers, later a part of Swann's VA Cavalry.  Supposedly a spy, I cannot find info on him.
