Doors to the Past

Elisha McComas

BRIGADIER GENERAL
ELISHA McCOMAS

Elisha McComas reached the rank of Brigadier General in the War of 1812, having organized his own military unit. In the early 1800s he moved to what is now Cabell County (but was then Montgomery County, Virginia) and helped organize the new County of Cabell. He had two sons who voted during the Virginia secession vote; one voted for secession and one voted against. Another son who organized the Civil War unit called "McComas's Artillery" in Giles County, Virginia, was killed in battle. Another son served as a doctor in the same unit as his brother who was killed. Another son became the editor of a Chicago newspaper.

 

Buried  in Salt Rock, WV in a small unkempt cemetery between the Railroad tracks and the river.   There are also several other family members buried there also.  

Go to the Cemetery Section and open the cemetery for Elisha McComas for additional information on who is buried in the cemetery.
