"He is said to have been very wild and profane in his youth, but was converted and became a Methodist minister. At the age of 24 he enlisted in the Confederate Army and was given a commission for gallantry at the First Battle of Manassas. By 1863 he had risen to the rank of major. He called himself the "ugliest man and the best rider in the Confederate States Army". He was in command of the artillery at the battle of Baton Rouge, When the Union Admiral Farragut attempted to proceed with his fleet up the Red River , Major Fauntleroy had placed his guns at a strategic point on a high bluff at a bend of the narrow river and held it with a small force against all assaults by both water and land. Admiral Farragut finally retired down stream and sent Major Fauntleroy a note in which he said "My compliments to Major Fauntleroy. With my ships and your battery I believe we could capture Hell." Major Fauntleroy was in many battles and had many horses shot under him."

   Dr. Henry Fauntleroy gave a brief account of the family to Bishop William Randolph Meade, and the latter published it in his well known book "Old Churches, Ministers, and Families of Virginia", in Vol. 2, pages 478 to 481.
