Brig. Gen. John Randolph Chambliss, Jr., C.S.A., is buried just west of here. Born in Hicksford (present-day Emporia) on 23 January 1833, Chambliss graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1853. During the Civil War, he commanded the 41st Virginia Infantry Regiment in the Seven Days' campaign. He next led the 13th Virginia Cavalry and served under J. E. B. Stuart. Chambliss was killed in an engagement on the Charles City Road east of Richmond on 16 August 1864. His former West Point schoolmate, Union Brig. Gen. David M. Gregg, took charge of the body and sent it home.
