Charles E. Shryock journal 1861-1862
Charles E. Shryock was born in September 1819, and lived in Stephens City, Virginia, his entire life. In June 1861, Shryock mustered in the 51st Virginia Militia as a colonel, and commanded F and S companies. After being mustered out a year later, on June 13, 1862, because of his age, Shryock returned home to Virginia and worked as an undertaker in Stephens City until his death on March 16, 1902. Shryock married twice, and had at least two daughters: Laura (b. ca. 1847) and Luella (b. 1860).
