Memoranda of arrest of George W. Fox, Fayette County, Virginia. 1862.

George W. Fox.-Born in Nelson County, Va. Lived in Fayette for twenty-five years. Says he does not know for what be was arrested. Taken to Floyds camp at Gauley just before the battle of Carnifix Ferry. Was under guard across the river during the battle. Voted for secession and says he is a secession man. Never had anything to do with Yankees or Union men. Mr. Alderson proves he is a man of good character. All the votes at Fox precinct were for secession, but does not know whether Fox voted. Mr. McLaughlin proves Fox a man of good character and was understood to be a secessionist. Says May, a noted scout in that country, told him Fox had agreed to give him thirty bushels of corn if he would kill fifteen Yankees. I recommend his discharge.
