ADDITIONAL NOTES

*150 - 167 The above were members of Captain Rugeley's Company of Cavalry. All the above perished from exposure to a Norther on the Peninsula after the foundering of the Boat in which they attempted to land to attack the Yankees, with four others of their companions. Alas, what a fearful disaster, an awful visitation of God's wrath.
