The 7th Battalion Confederate Cavalry - Virginia
            
The following file contains the records of 426 men.  This is only about half
of those presumed to have served.
Compiled Service Records - Introduction to the Compiled Service
Records
7th Battalion Confederate Cavalry
The compiled service records for the soldiers who served in the 7th
Battalion Confederate Cavalry have been primarily been taken from Record
Group 109, located at the National Archives, Washington, D.C.  The roster
has been supplemented from other official and unofficial sources, including
but not limited to family histories, county histories, cemetery records,
The Confederate Veteran, county records and pension application files
at the Virginia State Library, Richmond and in the Kentucky Department of
Libraries and Archives in Frankfort, Kentucky.
Since muster rolls for the 7th battalion do not exist, supplemental sources
were crucial in determining the listing of the battalions' soldiers.  These
records are obviously not entirely accurate, but add valuable data to the
roster.  Spellings found in these various sources are not consistent.  Every
effort has been made to include everyone who should be listed, and to
avoid duplications; however, this effort may not have been entirely
successful.
Discrepancies are found in even the official compiled service records.  These
problems arise from several contemporary organizational problems. 
Communications were not always efficient.  It is entirely possible that a
soldier was listed as being AWOL when, in fact,he had been captured, was
wounded in the hospital, was sick, or was on detached service somewhere
away from the main body of the regiment.
Highlights of each soldier's career are presented to include date and place
of enlistment, periods of sickness, wounds, death, capture, incarceration,
and physical description.  Prewar and postwar residences when known,
birth and death dates, and place of burial have also been included.  Unless
otherwise stated, assume that a soldier was present through the last date
given.

COOK, ALGERNON SIDNEY: Capt., Co. G, Res. of Carter Co.,
KY.  Killed by Cleve Boyd at Castlewoods,
Russell Co. VA.  The scourge of northeastern Kentucky during the Civil War,
Captain Sid Cook was born in Russell
County, Virginia circa 1832.  The notorious guerrilla was in reality, Algernon
Sidney Lee, the son of Martin and Fanny
Lee.  Changing his name to Cook, he married Nancy Fraley in Russell
County on November 20, 1857.  His 26 year
old bride was the daughter of Henry and Mary Fraley. Cook later settled in
eastern Kentucky and by 1860 was
residing in Boyd County.  In addition to a son, Fletcher, was born about
1857 and a daughter Elizabeth was born in
1859.  Cook's household also included two stepchildren, Rufus B. born
circa 1849 and Louis born about 1854. 
Following the outbreak of the Civil War, he moved his family to Carter
County.  A brave but absolutely ruthless leader,
Cook organized a company of Confederate Cavalry in the spring of 1863. 
His command was recruited primarily in
present day Elliott and Morgan Counties but rarely operated with the main
Confederate Army.  Dave Cook, the
captain's brother (born about 1845), served as second in command.  The
younger Cook earned an equally desperate
reputation. despite his youth.  Together they terrorized the region between
the Licking and the Ohio Rivers.  The
Cooks frequently joined forces with other noted partisans, including John
T. Williams and Captain Samuel W.
Thompson.  Between April and October in 1863, the Cooks raided Star
Furnace (Carter County), Poplar Plains,
Flemingsburg, Pennsylvania Furnace (Greenup County), Olive Hill and
Morehead, Kentucky.  On or about April 9,
1863, Dave Cook, Travis Kendall and others clashed with Home Guards
near Grayson.  Nathaniel Marks, a member
of Fields' Rangers, who frequently rode with the Cooks killed Joseph Young
during the fighting.  He was later
captured and hanged at Louisville for the deed.  Briefly during the summer
of 1863, Cook's company was attached
to Lieutenant Colonel Oliver A. Patton's Partisan Rangers Battalion.  After
Patton was captured his command fell apart
and Cook joined the 7th Confederate Cavalry Battalion.  The 7th, led by
Lieutenant Colonel Clarence J. Prentice, was
based at Pound Gap, Virginia.  Cook, who continued to serve on detached
duty, raided Paintsville, Kentucky on July
16, 1864.  In January 1865, while Prentice's battalion was quartered in
southwestern Virginia, Cook's men terrorized
the Russell County town of Castlewoods.  The local citizens were robbed
by the soldiers.  The soldiers in turn lavished
the spoils on several prostitutes who followed them to the area.  Led by a
few Confederate soldiers, the citizens rose
up and burned out the brothels.  Cook was killed by Cleve Boyd, a fellow
rebel, during the clash.  Cook's widow
continued to reside in Carter County after the war where she earned a
scandalous reputation in her own right.  Carter
County court records reveal that she was charged with concealing stolen
property by Charles Kitchen in 1868.  Isom
Davidson, the writer's ancestor was among many local men who testified
in her defense.  While they agreed that she
was a "lewd woman" who was "friendly with too many men" she was no
thief!  She disappears from the records
shortly afterwards, although her son Rufus B. was still residing in Carter
County in 1880.  The company roster
included with this sketch was compiled from military records at the National
Archives.  These records were
supplemented by old court records, contemporary newspapers, and
Confederate pension records.  John B. Wells'
excellent article on Cook in the February 1985 issue of The Partisan was
very valuable.  This publication is the official
newsletter of Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp No. 1429 at Paintsville,
Kentucky.  Please note that this list
includes the names of those men considered to be regularly enlisted
members of the command.

FULTON, WILLIAM (WILBURN): Capt., Co. B.  Previously served
as Capt., Co. D, 5th VSL and as Capt.
of Co. A, French's Battn. VA Inf.  On T. E. Davis' list of VSL Officers dated
2/28/63.  Participated in Menifee's Raid
on Piketon, KY in 8/62.  Service confirmed by depositions filed in Dils vs.
May lawsuit filed in Pike Co., KY Circuit
Court in 1866.  Nathaniel Menifee mentions a Captain Fulton in his
command who led a company of Tories (Northern
sympathizers) who took the oath of allegiance to the Confederacy and
joined his command.  Menifee seems to have
been confused on this point, as Fulton later served under Clarence Prentice. 
The Tory company was actually
commanded by Alf Killen, who after his state line service, joined Co. F, 39th
KY (Federal).  This may or may not be
the same person.  Captain William Fulton, however, was mentioned on
Document 35, listing the officers of the VSL. 
Menifee's Capt. Fulton, however, returned and was in the Federal Army by
2/22/65.  PRSWVA p. 149, an abstract
from the Charleston, WV. Gazette for Sunday, August 23, 1953, indicates
that prior to the war Fulton was a
storekeeper, but lost all he had during the war.  He was captured at one
point, and scheduled to be executed as a
guerilla but was so ill, was spared because the Federals felt he was dying
anyway.  Res. of Boone Co., WV.  The
statement of James Harvey Long seems to confirm this speculation, stating
Fulton was his captain in Co. B, 7th CSA
Cav. Bn. and that he had served in the 4th VSL under Menifee.  Fulton also
served as Capt., Co. A, French's Bn. VA
Inf.  Age 28, farmer, 1860 Wise Co. Census.

man he killed was Little Rube Potter.  Potter had been in the army and heard
his family was starving and had no shoes
to wear during the winter.  So he came home without leave, and the guard
was sent after him.  John was a member
of the guard.  When they got near Potter's home, Potter saw them coming
and knew they were after him.  He was
making home-made shoes for his children.  He jumped up and tried to get
away.  But as he jumped the fence near
the house, John Wright shot him and he died from the wound.  John killed
alot of other men, but I don't think he was
ever punished for any of the killings.  John Wright married or lived with
several women...."
