He took part in the raid through Maryland and Pennsylvania. While home on furlough, January 26, 1865, he was made prisoner by a scouting party, and held at Point Lookout till the war closed. The first wife of Mr. Jones was Ann Elizabeth, daughter of Colonel Cook of Chestnut Grove. They were married December 17, 1871, and she died May 20, 1873.

100.                        Lacy, P. F.

101.     Lacy, Richard Terrell - son of Richmond T. and Ellen G. (Lane) Lacy, was born in New Kent county, February 18, 1842. His parents are deceased. In Caroline county, Virginia, October 4, 1876, he married Lizzie Winston, and their son Richmond T., third of the name, was born February 14, 1882. Lizzie, wife of Mr. Lacy, is a daughter of John R. and Elizabeth P. T. (Fauntleroy) Winston, and was born in Richmond July 27, 1853. Her father died in 1857, and her mother has since married Thomas Stirling, and resides in Essex county, Virginia. The subject of this sketch, and his brother B. W., were Confederate soldiers. Richmond T. enlisted in May, 1862, in Company F, 3d Virginia Cavalry, and served until the army disbanded. B. W. enlisted in 1861, was wounded in the battle of Kelleys Ford in 1862; was again wounded in the engagement at Nance's Shop, in 1864, and received parole in 1865. Richmond T. Lacy owns 675 acres of land about three miles from White House Station. On this farm is a mineral spring of lithia water, which was accidentally discovered in March, 1877. The owner of the land was boring in search of green sand marl on the border of a meadow attached to his land, and after boring through ten feet of dry and almost impervious clay, he struck a stream of water. Upon removing the augur the water rose to the surface and flowed in a bold stream from the opening three feet above it, evidently having its source in some unknown point of higher elevation. Richmond T. Lacy is an attorney-at-law by profession, and was commonwealth attorney, 1872-83. He is now serving as captain and inspecting officer for the 2d Congressional district. Talleysville, New Kent county, Virginia, is his address.(Source:  Hardesty's Historical and Geographical Encyclopedia, H. H. Hardesty, 1884.) Transcribed by: T. Lindsay

From the time of his death, the home circle was broken, his wife lost health and strength, became a confirmed invalid, and did not long survive him. The grandfather of Walker P. Hogan was killed at the battle of Bunker Hill, and buried on the field. By her mother's family, Mrs. Taylor is of English descent on the one side, and of Scotch on the other. Her mother's grandfather was Peter Whiting, and he married Dorothy Myra Roy, closely allied to Rob Roy, whom Walter Scott has immortalized. The Beverlys of colonial days were her mother's relatives. On the paternal side Mrs. Taylor's mother's grandmother was a Crittenden, the family that gave Kentucky her statesman of that name. The paternal grandmother of Mrs. Taylor was Myra Wiley Whiting, her paternal grandfather, Richard Dudley, of English descent, a relative of Lord Guilford Dudley, whose name is familiar to all who know the story of Lady Jane Grey.
