Stanford Lea Jessee was the oldest of 5 children born to
Jefferson Jessee and Nancy Counts.
Birth: 23 OCT 1832 in , Russell Co., VA
Death: 10 JAN 1862 in Battle of, Middle Creek, KY
Source: 1860 Russell Co., VA Census, pg. 28.They lived on a farm near Carterton (later called the Sam Jessee place). He joined the Confederate Army, serving in Capt. William Jessee’s Company. At the battle of Middle Creek, KY, he was stationed with the commissary wagon; but when the battle began, he seized his gun, rushed into the action and was killed by a minnie ball. The Castlewood Baptist Church adopted this tribute:”It has pleased an all-wise providence to remove from our midst our much beloved brother, Stanford L. Jessee, in the thirtieth year of his age, who was killed in the battle of Middle Creek, Ky, on the 10th day of Januray 1862. he became a member of our church at the early age of ten years from which time to the time of his death he was an exemplary and consistent Christian. In his last moments, having fallen in the midst of battle at the hand of an invading foe, he still trusted in that God he was accustomed to serve as was evidenced from the last words that fell from his lips, which were: “Tell all my friends I died a soldier and died at my post. I have done all I can do and will soon be in a better world than this.’…Or church has lost a useful member. He was a regular attendant of our church meetings, and his deportment as clerk of the church was at all times that of a Christian.”Standford and Sarah are buried on their homeplace:Source: “Some Descendants of John Counts of Glade Hollow” by E.J.
