Fremont to Abraham Lincoln, June 12, 1862 Military affair s The following are exerpts taken from the writings of Thomas Almond Ashby on the Civil War t o show what it was like for Isaac Stockwell in the Battle of Cross Keys, beginning from pag e 135 The Valley Campaigns Being the Reminiscences of a Non Combatant While Between the Lines in the Shenandoah Valley During the War of the States Electronic Edition. Ashby, Thomas Almond, 1848 1916 General Shields now reversed his order of march, and by one o clock was moving sout h by the Page Valley, to try and get in Jackson s rear at New Market. Jackson retreated slowl y up the Valley, followed by Banks in his rear, Fremont on his right flank, and Shields on hi s left. When he reached Harrisonburg he came to a halt and waited for the advance of Fremon t and BanksPage 136 he then took a position at Cross Keys and waited for an assault of the enemy. On the 8th of June Jackson defeated the Federals under Fremont and the following da y he crossed the south branch of the Shenandoah and at Port Republic gave battle to the arm y under General Shields. After a hard and bloody fight he defeated Shields and forced him t o retreat north by the same route along which he had advanced. The brigade commanded by Gener al Carroll was engaged in the battle of Port Republic and suffered heavy losses. A few days l ater General Carroll returned from the front and as he passed my home, where Mrs. Carroll wa s still staying, he sent a courier to the house with the following message Tell Mrs. Carroll to join me in Washington. Tell Mrs. Ashby that old Jackson gave u s hell. He was tired, his clothes were torn and muddy, and his morale completely broken. In h is pitiable condition he had not the courage to face either his heart sick wife or my mother , though he passed within one hundred yards of the house. He hurried to the depot and took th e first train for Washington. This was the last we ever saw of General Carroll. Mrs. Carroll , a pitiful little woman tied to a great big bear, joined her husband a few days later. Shields retreated north by the Page Valley,Page 137 and Fremont and Banks followed the main Valley. Their forces were demoralized by the rough ex periences they had had in following Jackson. When Shields reached our village his men were wo rn out, ragged, and half starved. He had taken little time for rest, for he thought that Jack son was following on his rear. He was pursued by a small body of cavalry that kept annoying h im until he was safe under the wings of McDowell, who was still encamped near our village. After the battles of Cross Keyes and Port Republic, Jackson withdrew his army to a sa fe encampment near Mt. Meridian. Here he rested his men for five days, then he crossed the mo untain and took the railroad that carried his army to within easy reach of Richmond, where h e joined his forces with those of General Lee to fight the battles of the Peninsula, battle s that resulted in the defeat and retreat of the army under McClellan. On May 19th, Stonewall Jackson had begun his Valley Campaign, a campaign that resul ted in a brilliant success for the Southern cause. With the defeat of Fremont on June 8th an d of Shields on June 9th, he had been on the march for 23 days had covered nearly 200 miles had driven Banks across the Potomac had withdrawn McDowell s forces from Fredericksburg, w herePage 138 they were on their way to reinforce McClellan before Richmond had seized valuable supplies a t Front Royal, Winchester, and Martinsburg, and at length, although surrounded on three side s by 60,000 men, had escaped the snares set for him and brought off his prisoners and capture d goods without losing a wagon. And he had done all this with a comparatively small loss of m en. The battle of Port Republic was his most costly victory, but its results were so brillian t that it was a fitting close to a scene of warfare that will live in history with the grea t campaigns of the world. It raised the fame of Jackson to the highest pinnacle of military r enown, giving him a position among the greatest soldiers of the age. Having followed Jackson to his union with Lee before Richmond, I must now return to th e situation of affairs as they were presented in my own home. After the battle of Port Republic the Federal troops were encamped in and near our vi llage until about the 20th of June. During the greater part of this time we lived in daily ex pectation of an attack from the Confederate forces. The Federals were kept in anxious suspens e, since Jackson s whereabouts were not known. Strong guard was kept on the outposts, and eve ry preparation was made for an attack. Jackson s union with Lee was not known until the engag ementPage 139 with McClellan on the Chickahominy was announced. Large bodies had been retained in the Valle y to protect Washington, and he had slipped quietly across the mountain to co�perate with Lee .

Original Message       From  Sandy Gifford To  ngregory@neumedia.net Sent  Tuesday, March 27, 2001 12 48 PM Subject  1860 Census Lookup   Hi Nettie,  I am hoping that you can look up a name for me on the Braxton Co., WV 1860 census.  I am look ing for a Jemima Keener.  Some think she may be a daughter of Oliver Keener and be about ag e 10 or 12 at the taking of this census.  Thank you so very much.  Sandy  Beam  Gifford  1870 KEENER OLIVER Braxton County WV 414 Franklin Township Federal Population Schedule WV 187 0 Federal Census Index WV56950819  Letter written by Sandy Gifford  to Braxton Co. Lookup volunteer  I am wondering if you could look up a marriage for me.  This would have been sometime after 1 860 and before 1880 since they show up in the 1880 Braxton Co. census together.  Jemima    maiden name unknown  b. 1848 and  Oliver Keener b. abt. 1809 1818  Thank you very much.  Sandy  Beam  Gifford   Hi Sandy,  I could not find a marriage for Oliver Keener in the Braxton Marriages of 1836 1875 or the Br axton Marriages of 18761932. Nor could I find him listed in the Lewis Co marriages  of 1817 1880.  However, I did find a marriage for Mrs Jemima Keener, age 48 to Isaac Stockwell, age 66. They were married on 31 Dec 1896 in Braxton Co.  When they use the term  Mrs  it usually means she was  widowed.  Claud Gillespie  Unknown Keeners  Clermont Cemetery, Marion Co., WV Carpenter, Mable Keener, b. 1906, d. 1967,  NK  Nicholas Co., WV marriages  KEENER, JAMES      DEMOS, ELIZABETH 02 FEB 1832  Hi again Sandy     This is what i have on Oliver Keener he was married to Jane Davis thier ch ildren are, Margaret, Sarar Anges,Maria L , William and Elvira Jane Keener         I Wi ll have to check thecourthouse records for his 2nd marriage and see what i an find out on Jem ima Keener.
