Clifton Walker Elmore1,2,3,4,5

M, b. April 11, 1845, d. April 21, 1940
FatherElder Andrew Jackson "Andy" Elmore2,3,6,7,8 b. July 9, 1811, d. November 29, 1895
MotherElizabeth Murray "Betsy" Walker2,3,6,7 b. December 20, 1818, d. August 28, 1886
     Clifton Walker Elmore was buried at West View Cemetery, New Castle, Craig Co., Virginia; His tombstone reads "C.S.A. 22nd VA."1,4,8,5 He Clifton served the CSA during the Civil War. He fought in the Battle of New Market, the Battle of Dry Run, and in the last Battle of the Wilderness. He was wounded in the "great and second toes of the right foot" and was admitted to the CSA Chimborazso Hospital No. 5 in Richmond, Virginia, on 25 May 1864. According to his own recollections, the wound was the result of a gun being accidentally fired as it lay under some blankets near the camp. Recalling his part in the Battle of New Market in an interview shortly before his death he stated that the one big regret of his life was that he shot a Yankee cavalry officer who was leading a charge.9
He was born on April 11, 1845 at New Castle, Botetourt Co. (now Craig Co.), Virginia.1,4,8 He Enlisted June 18, 1863 at Camp Jackson (near Lewisburg) by Capt. McNeil, as a private in Company D, 22nd Virginia Infantry Regiment (formerly the Kanawha Rifles) for the duration of the war. May 25, 1864: Admitted to the Chimborazo Hospital #5, Richmond, Virginia. June 2, 1864: Transferred to the Confederate States of America General Hospital in Farmville, Virginia, with a gunshot wound involving the great and second toes of the right foot. June 7, 1864: Furloughed for 60 days in New Castle. Notation on form shows his complaint was "Vul Sclop" on June 18, 1863.10 He married Mary Ann Elizabeth Elmore, daughter of Joel Brownlon Elmore and Sarah Catherine "Katy" Paxton, on May 19, 1867 at Craig Co., Virginia.6,1,8,11 Clifton Walker Elmore Civil War Pension Application, August 11, 1914, signed by C.W. Elmore Applicant stated he was 69 yrs. of age, and was born in New Castle, Virginia, and had resided there for all except 10 yrs. of his life. Applicant entered the Army of the Confederate States of America in July of 1862 at Meadow Bluff in what is now West Virginia. He served in Company D, 22nd Virginia Infantry Regiment under Capt. McNeal and Col. Barbee. He left the service in 1865 at the close of the war. Applicant stated that he served as postmaster for 17 yrs., but was now unemployed. He further stated that he was partially disabled because of a "severe double hernia" and the infirmities of age. This statement of physical condition was certified by Dr. B. R. Caldwell. A separate document indicates that his pension was approved on Oct 24, 1914 in the amount of $28.80, pursuant to the Virginia Act of 1902. on August 11, 1914.10 He NEAR CENTENARIAN RECALLS EXPERIENCES IN CIVIL WAR. Craig Man Not Interested in Present Conflict. Clifton Walker Elmore, Craig County's sole surviving veteran of the War Between the States, peered up from his easy chair in the home of a daughter at New Castle one day recently and declared he had little knowledge of and practically no concern over the World War II. "One war was enough for me," the 95-year-old veteran of three famous battles announced. He can well say that, this man who "fought with the boys" at the Battle of New Market, and with plenty of honor. "The one big thing I regret in my life occurred during the war and at the New Market scene," he said solemnly as he related incidents of his experiences. "You see," he added, "I killed a man." "It was a Yankee officer," he explained. "It occurred at New Market---before or after the charge, I can't recall which---and I saw the fellow astride a horse. He was riding with a cavalry unit, but he was alone and apart from his men. I leveled down on him and fired and he fell from his mount," he related softly, with no indication that he was proud of the feat. "I wish now that I had shot the horse instead, "Mr. Elmore added. Though he took part in two other major conflicts, the Battle of the Wilderness, which he said was fought near Hanover Courthouse, and the Battle of Dry Creek, the aged man said that he did not shoot anyone else that he knew of for certain. Wounded through an accident that occurred while his group were resting, the end of the war found him in a hospital "somewhere in Montgomery Co." under treatment for a shot in the ankle. For some reason, which the old soldier cannot remember, a gun was fired off as it lay under some blankets near the camp. The bullet struck him in the foot. He had some difficulty entering the war, he told. Volunteering at the beginning of the siege, his father cancelled that idea right off, but 2 years later, at the age of 18, he enlisted and joined his fellow soldiers at Lewisburg, W.V., and afterwards moved down into the Valley of Va. during the last year of the war. After the surrender, he returned home and resumed his trade of wagon-maker with his father. At home he has remained for most of his life, leaving Craig Co. only once for any period of time. He lived in Snowville for about four years, plying his trade of wagon making. Sitting at his home on Main St. in New Castle, he observed with some pride that he was born next door. On April 11, 1845, he said he arrived in a house that has now been replaced by a filling station. Next April, the family will celebrate in a small way his 95th birthday anniversary. A staunch Republican, he votes a straight ticket every chance he gets. "I think Roosevelt is all right, but he's a Democrat," was his way of expressing it. Since his wife's death 14 years ago, Mr. Elmore has been living with his daughter, Mrs. J.R. Elmore. He has six other children, all of them living. in December, 1939.12 He died on April 21, 1940 at New Castle, Craig Co., Virginia, at age 95.1,4,8 He Clifton Walker Elmore, 95, of New Castle, Craig Co.'s last Confederate veteran and one of the oldest residents of the county, died last night at his home. He participated in the Battle of New Market, Battle of the Wilderness and Battle of Dry Creek. He was a wagon maker by trade and spent practically all of his life in Craig County. Recalling his part in the Batttle of New Market, Mr. Elmore last year told an interviewer that the one big regret of his life was that he shot a Yankee cavalry officer who was leading a charge. He had, he told the interviewer in December of last year, little knowledge and practically no concern over World War II. "One war was enough for me," he declared. Mr. Elmore is survived by the following children: E.E., O.J. and C.D. Elmore and Mrs. J.R. Elmore of New Castle; Rev. C.E. Elmore of Salem; Rev. R.E. Elmore of Phoenix, Ariz; A.W. Elmore of Roanoke, Va; and a step-son, Rev. W.H. Book of Orlando, Fla. The funeral will be at the Christian Church of New Castle at 2 PM tomorrow, conducted by Rev. Calvert Wiley, with interment in West View Cemetery. The body will remain at Lotz-Windley Funeral Home in Roanoke until it is removed to the church in New Castle to lie in state for an hour preceeding the service. on August 22, 1940.5
