Biographical Information

Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson was born 21 January 1824 in Clarksburg, Virginia, to Jonathan Jackson (1790-1826) and Julia Beckwith Neale Jackson (1798-1831). He attended West Point and became an instructor at Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Virginia. Jackson married first Elinor Junkin (1825-1854) on 4 August 1853. After her death during childbirth, Jackson married Mary Anna Morrison (1831-1915) of North Carolina on 16 July 1857. They had two daughters, Mary Graham Jackson (b. 1858) and Julia Laura Jackson (1862-1889). After Jackson's death 10 May 1863, Mary Anna Jackson returned to North Carolina. She became known as the "Widow of the Confederacy" and became the honorary president of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. She wrote about her husband and traveled about speaking on him. Mary Anna Jackson died 24 March 1915 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Robert Lewis Dabney (1820-1898), Presbyterian clergyman and teacher, was an educator associated with Hampden-Sydney College and with the Union Seminary of Virginia at Farmville, Virginia, 1836-1837, 1844, and 1853-1883. He married Lavinia Morrison (1828-1908) in 1855, and together they had several children including Charles William Dabney (1855-1945). During the Civil War he served with the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, first as a chaplain with the 18th Virginia Infantry Regiment in 1861, then as an officer and chief of staff for Stonewall Jackson in 1862. After Jackson's death in 1863, Dabney wrote a biography of the general entitled Life and Campaigns of Lieutenant-General Thomas J. Jackson (1866). He was the son of Charles William Dabney (1786-1833) and Elizabeth Price Dabney, and the brother of Charles William Dabney (1809-1895), who served during the Civil War, in 1861 and 1862, as the captain of Company C, 15th Virginia Infantry Regiment.

Charles William Dabney (1786-1833) was the son of Samuel Dabney (1752-1812) and Jane Meriwether Dabney. Samuel Dabney was the son of William Dabney (1718-1776) and Ann Barret Dabney. Charles Dabney (ca. 1744- 1829), a son of William Dabney, served as an officer during the American Revolution in the 2nd Virginia State Regiment.
