John Washington Jefferson - Unknown   
Family history indicates that John Washington Jefferson served under Albert Gallitan Jenkins who, prior to the outbreak of the Civil War, served Virginia as a member of Congress. With the outbreak of the Civil War and Virginia's subsequent secession, Jenkins declined running for a third term and resigned from Congress in early 1861. He returned home and raised a company of mounted partisan rangers. By June, his company had enrolled in the Confederate army as a part of the 8th Virginia Cavalry, with Jenkins as its colonel. He spent the early part of 1864 raising and organizing a large cavalry force for service in western Virginia. By May, Jenkins had been appointed Commander of the Department of Western Virginia with his headquarters at Dublin. Hearing that Union Brig. Gen. George Crook had been dispatched from the Kanawha Valley with a large force, Jenkins took the field to contest the Federal arrival. On May 9, 1864, he was severely wounded and captured during the Battle of Cloyd's Mountain. A Union surgeon amputated Jenkins' arm, but he never recovered, dying twelve days later.

LEVI WAYBRIGHT- was born in Pendleton County, then Virginia, in 1829. He moved to Sutton, Braxton County, WV. where he was employed as a carpenter. In 1854 he married the widow Mary Jane (Evans) Stephenson. The Braxton County 1860 census shows Levi as the father of three Waybright children, three Stephenson step-children and living on a large profitable farm. The 1860 census also shows him as the owner of six slaves. Levi enlisted in the Virginia 62nd Mounted Infantry on August 20, 1862. He was one of the about 40 soldiers from Braxton County who enlisted in Company G of the 62nd Virginia. He likely participated in the 1862 raids against the B&O Railroad. Levi died of Small Pox February 7, 1863 at Camp Washington near Romney, WV. He is likely buried in an unknown grave at what was Camp Washington or at Romney.
