Capt. Thomas Fauntleroy

1Robert H. Fauntleroy, Fauntleroy Family, The, Microfilm published: Washington, 1952, P 53, FHL 1318331 Item 3. "He enlisted in the Confederate Army at the age of 23, and fought all through the war, rising to the rank of captain. He was wounded at the battle of Gaines Mill and again at Chancellorsville. He was taken prisoner at the battle of Sayers creek near the close of the war, and carried to Johnson's Island, in Lake Erie, where he was held prisoner of war until after the the close of hostilities. In 1868 he married Mary Anna Dearing, 1843-1917, and they lived for a short time at "Oakley" in Gloucester County, just across the Dragon Swamp from Middlesex, where their oldest children were born. In 1875 they moved to Campbell County and lived at "Avoca" the old home of Col. Charles Lynch, 1736-1796. This place was inherited by Mary Anna Dearing, who was descended from Colonel Lynch, a pioneer of this section, and it was from his family that the city of Lynchburg got its name. It was from Colonel Lynch that the use of the words "lynch law" started, to designate a summary trial and punishment of law breakers. During pioneer days when the nearest courts to this section were 200 miles away and when the country near the mountains was full of roaming criminals, Col. Charles Lynch and his neighbors banded together for their own protection. When law breakers were caught they were brought to the yard at "Avocatt, where court was held in the open under a large walnut tree. If found guilty, they were given immediate punishment. It was a necessary procedure for those lawless days, and far different from the way in which "lynch law" is used in modern times. The next meeting of the General Assembly in Virginia declared the action of this court justified led by the conditions, and this decision is recorded in Henings Statutes. The old tree where these scenes were enacted may still be seen in the yard at "Avoca"."

"Thomas Fauntleroy, a lieutenant in the Confederate army, was wounded in service four times, taken prisoner and carried to Johnson's Island, Lake Michigan, where he was detained four months."

Mary Anna Dearing

1R. H. Early, Virginia, Embracing the History of Campbell county. Campbell Chronicles and Family Sketches. (J. P. Bell Company, Lynchburg, Virginia, 1927). "Mary, m. Thomas, son of Thos. W. Fauntleroy, resided at Aisoca, which had been the property of her uncle, Charles Henry Lynch, and was named from its supposed resemblance to the Irish valley which Moore memorialized; there her family still continue to live; at its entrance stands the walnut tree used by Revolutionary Vigilants and the old burying ground containing several generations of the family who have passed away, is on the left side of the lawn, guarded by a tall cypress tree."


Juliet Fauntleroy

1Robert H. Fauntleroy, Fauntleroy Family, The, Microfilm published: Washington, 1952, p.59, FHL 1318331 Item 3. "She graduated from Mr. John Powell's school in Richmond, Va. and was a teacher in the Altavista High School for many years. She is very much interested in family history, and has written two books on the history and genealogy of the Fauntleroy family. One is called "Colonel Moore Fauntleroy, his Ancestors and Descendants", and the other is called "Early Fauntleroy Homes and Lands". Copies of these books are in the Virginia State Library at Richmond, and in the D.A.R. Library at Washington. Besides these, she has written many other articles on history and genealogy which have been published in various newspapers and periodicals. She has contributed her time, money, and effort to bring to light, and preserve historical records in the old courthouse in Virginia. She has been active in the D.A.R. and was elected regent of the Colonel  Charles Lynch Chapter at Altavista, Va. in 1937 by a unamimous vote. In addition she is a member of the Virginia Folk Lore Society and has collected and preserved many of the old folk songs and ballads sung in Virginia.  She is also interested in Indian relics, and has a collection of over 2000 pieces, accumulated with the help of her sister, Ethel Corbin Fauntleroy, in the area around their home at "Avoca" in Campbell County.

Juliet Fauntleroy has done much to preserve the history and traditions of the Fauntleroy family, and for this she deserves the gratitude of all its members and their descendants.

Much of the data contained in this book was obtained from the books written by her, many of the pictures were furnished by her, and it was with her help and encouragement that this book was undertaken."

2R. H. Early, Virginia, Embracing the History of Campbell county. Campbell Chronicles and Family Sketches. (J. P. Bell Company, Lynchburg, Virginia, 1927). "Juliet Fauntleroy, a sister of Captain Fauntleroy, holds position of teacher in Altavista schools, is a student of natural history and a genealogist."
