William E. (Grumble) Jones (1824-64) Virginia Brigadier General (CSA). West Point Class of 1848 (Cavalry) Fought in the Indian wars. Promoted to BG, he served under Stuart, with whom he frequently quarreled. ("Grumble" apparently was not easy to get along with.) Fearless in action and dismissive of Union military capabilities, he was killed leading a charge against a superior force.
