Philip Rudasillar - Private   
My great great Uncle Phil Rudasil was with the 'Warren Blues' from Warren County, VA. Initially Phil was part of the Infantry but at some point decided to join the CAV. Shortly after that he lost an eye in a sabre duel. Also, he lost a leg in the War. My Mom always told me about Uncle Phil's 'pegleg'; I wasn't sure about this until I found a record wherein he applied for disability and the recorded reason given was shown to be 'a severed leg'!! My grandparents, Carvel H. and Lena Baggarly took care of Phil in his later years in their home in Front Royal, VA as he lived to be 97 years old!
Sure don't make 'em like that any more! Phil's obit was titled 'Oldest Living Confederate Vet in Warren County Dies'.
His brother, Isaac Rudasillar also joined the Warren Blues and served; I know much less about him. He is also listed.

James Gray - Private   
b. Fauquier Co., VA between 1821-1824
married Elizabeth Jane Gill 21 Dec. 1843 in Fauquier Co.
James Gray enlisted for one year as a private in the Fauquier Guards under Capt. Edward Murray, who was a West Point graduate. (He later stated that he had served a total of 18 months.) The Guards were made up of men from Fauquier and Nelson Counties, VA. It was accepted into state(Virginia) service on 26 May 1861, and mustered into state service two days later, on 28 May. By July 1861, the Fauquier Guards were joined by other units from Prince William, Warren, Rappahannock, Amherst, and Shenandoah County to form Co. H of the 49th Virginia Volunteer Infantry. Co. H was soon involved in the first battle of the Civil War, the Battle of First Manassas, or First Bull Run.
The battle commenced on 21 July, with Company H as one of the sole three companies of the 49th Virginia Infantry that fought in First Manassas, forming the nucleus of the regiment. Co. H was ordered to march to the fighting on Henry Hill, where it took position of the left side of Jackson's Brigade and participated in the capture of a Yankee artillary battery. This is where Co. H. charged against the enemy, and held Rickett's Battery for a short time, and 212 men were killed or wounded during the charge. This is when James Gray was struck in the left leg by a Minie ball during a charge at the enemy, just below his thigh, cutting the 'leaders'(nerves?).
In 1888, James Gray applied for partial disability and received $15 per year. In his application for disability from 1898, James Gray stated that the leaders(nerves?) of his leg were cut and always affected the use of his leg, but from 1893 on, he had lost almost the entire use of his leg. He had had intense pain, and his leg gave way on him, causing him to be unable to work. In 1898, he claimed he was entitled to a disability pension of $30 per year, which doubled his previous amount. In 1902, he claimed he was wounded in the right leg above his knee, causing his leg to give way and giving him rheumatism in his old age and partial paralysis of his limbs. He claimed he could not work for the past eight years (from 1894 on), and was entirely without means. He suffered from pain all the time. He also claimed he had had typhoid fever while in the Army. He claimed that Thomas Gray (probably a relative) of Warrenton, VA knew of his service, and the Confederate Veterans had the Joe Kendall Camp in Warrenton. (Ancestry.com: Jas. Gray in the U.S. Confederate Army Casulaty Lists and Reports, 1861-1865; Pension Application, James Gray, 25 April 1898; Application of Soldier, Sailor or Marine for Disability by Reason of Disease or the Infirmities of Age, James Gray, 6 May 1902).

Jacob Uhlfelder - Private   
Born in Bavaria in 1837. There happens to be a town there named Uehlfeld. (Though I have no sure knowledge of a connection.)
Immigrated to the US from Bavaria ca. 1858/59.
Settled in Warrenton VA.
Listed on the roster of 49th VA Inf (Extra Billy's Boys) from May 1861 to April 1865.
According to the 49th VA web site he was wounded twice. At First Manassas, again at Fredericksburg.
He is on list of paroled soldiers at Appomattox Courthouse.
Jacob returned to Warrenton and had a store of some kind. Probably dry goods.
In 1867 he married Mary Block from Strasbourg Alsace FRANCE. I believe this may have been an arranged marriage and that they had some kind of family connections, i.e. cousins of some sort.
They had five children. My great-grandmother Fannie b. 1872, David b. 1874, Lena b. 1877, Samuel b. 1878, and Carrie b. 1880. All born in Warrenton VA.
The property tax records in Richmond show a steady decline in his fortunes.
In 1886 they traveled to St. Joseph MO to be with Mary's sister and brother-in-law, Charles and Emma (Block)
Franke. As far as I can determine, Charles had a successful store there.
On the way Jacob died from an Asthma attack on July 25, 1886 while in Chillicothe MO where is in the Mount Sinai Area of the Edgewood Cemetery. Mary was buried next to him in 1907.
