J. E. Washpow--1st Va. Artillery  (Checked all units, cannot find what unit individual is in.)

1st Artillery Regiment was organized in September, 1861 and was accepted into Confederate service with only six companies. Rarely did the regiment have the normal number (ten) of companies assigned to it, and on September 2, 1864, the unit was reduced to a battalion and its designation changed to the 1st Battalion Virginia Artillery. Nor did all the companies assigned serve together as a field organization. Therefore, the history of each company is given under its own designation. They are: Company A--Smith's Battery; Company B--James City Light Artillery; Company C--Young's Battery; Company D----Richmond Howitzers--3rd Company; Company E---Brandon Light Artillery; Company F--Williamsburg Light Artillery; Company G----Peninsula Light Artillery; Company H---Albemarle Light Artillery; Company I--Richmond Fayette Light Artillery; Company K---Richmond Howitzers--2nd Company; Company L--Pulaski Georgia Light Artillery. The field officers were Colonel George W. Randolph; Lieutenant Colonel Henry C. Cabell; and Majors J. Thompson Brown, Lewis M. Coleman, Robert A. Hardaway, Edgar F. Hardaway, Edgar F. Moseley, Robert M. Scribling, and David Watson.
