Notes


MAJOR THOMAS LEE BROUN, (7--3), of Charleston, W. Va., b. Dec. 26, 1823; living 1909; graduated at the University of Virginia, 1848; studied law in Charleston, under Hon. George W. Summers, and with Albert G. Jenkins, 1850-51; was admitted to the Kanawha Bar, 1852, and has since practiced there and in Boone Co., also in the State Supreme Court of Appeals and the U. S. Court at Charleston. In 1857 he was appointed attorney for and elected President of the Coal River Navigation Co.;


in April, 1861, he entered the C. S. A., as a private in the "Kanawha Riflemen," Capt. George S. Patton's Co., which became the nucleus for the 22nd Va. Reg. of Inf.; promoted in Aug., 1861 to Major of the 2rd Reg. Wise's Legion, subsequently known as the 6oth Reg. Va. Inf. From Jan., 1862, to May 9, 1864, he was stationed at Dublin Depot, Pulaski Co., Va., as Post Commandant and Major Quartermaster; he next served as volunteer aid-de-camp on the staff of Col. Beuhring Jones, of the 60th Va., formerly the 3rd Va., Wise's Legion. In the battles that followed he rendered distinguished services; was seriously wounded, causing his disability for the remainder of that year. In Jan., 1865, while convalescent he was ordered to Wilmington, N. C., to take charge of the paper mills in Carolina and Georgia, which were supplying the government printing established at Columbia, S. C.; this duty he discharged until the occupancy of that territory by Sherman's Army, after which he proceeded to Richmond.


After the surrender, he returned to Charleston, W. Va., and was re-elected to the position of president of the Coal River Navigation Co., but as Confederate [p.438] soldiers were at that time disbarred from the practice of law in West Virginia, he removed to New York City, where he practiced his profession from June, 1866, to Nov., 1870, making a specialty of West Virginia, law and land titles. In 1870 the Legislature removed political disabilities from Confederate Soldiers, and lawyers who had served in the C. S. service were thereafter permitted to practice in West Virginia. He is a staunch and liberal supporter of the Episcopal Church. He m. June 7, 1866, in Richmond, Va., Mary Morris Fontaine, dau. of Col. Edmund Fontaine, of Hanover Co., Va., first President of the C. and O. Ry. Issue:

8--2. Ann Conway, m. Philip S. Powers, of Richmond, Va.
8--3. Fontaine, of Charleston, W. Va., educated at the University of Virginia; a distinguished lawyer. (The descendants of Susan (Pickett) Brady-Channell are zealous and liberal supporters of the Episcopal Church, and many of them are Vestrymen; and have filled positions of honor and trust, both of Church and State.


Major Thomas Lee Broun was the owner of Gen Robert E. Lee's famous war horse "Traveler," which he sold to Gen. Lee in Feb., 1862).
