While root hunting in Louisa, Virginia a couple of years ago I went to a local cemetery, Oakland Cemetery, and found a headstone which was an Obelisk with names on 3 sides:Robt. C. Towles b. 6 Sept., 1843 d. 16 June, 1864, Co. A, 4th Va. Cav.Mortally wounded in Battle on June 11 and died June 16, 1864. James H. Towles, b. 19 Oct., 1845, d. 9 May, 1864, Co. A, 4th Va. Cav. Killed in Battle, J. Vivian Towles b. 11 Feb., 1839, d. 11 Oct., 1863, Co. A, 4th Va. Cav. Killed in Battle On the 4th side of the obelisk was this inscription:Sons of Rev. John & S.E. Towles. Can you imagine the horror of losing three sons in that war?I have an ancestress who was a Towles; that is why this stone caught my eye.Thought I might share this with someone who is or was related to these people.
