(19 July 1828 - 14 Mar. 1919)

Roger A. Pryor was reared at Old Place near present-day Crewe. A lawyer and newspaper editor, he won election to the House of Representatives in 1859 and resigned in 1861. He agitated for secession in Charleston, S.C., and before the attack on Fort Sumter declined the opportunity to fire the first shot. Elected to the Provisional Confederate Congress, he resigned to command the 3d Va. Infantry, and was promoted to brigadier general in 1862. When his brigade was dismantled in 1863, he served as a scout until captured in 1864. After the war he moved to New York and in 1896 was appointed a justice to the New York Supreme Court.
