The Appomattox Chapter United Daughters of the Confederacy, the Appomattox Rangers Court House Camp, The Garland Rhodes SCV Camp, The Campbell County SCV Camp and the Appomattox Chapter Children of the Confederacy all joined together on December 3, 2006 at a little country cemetery in Evington Virginia to honor Private Robert Philip Elliott of Co. D 18th VA Battalion of the Heavy Artillery CSA.  Mr. Elliott was born September 19, 1834 the son of James and Elizabeth Phillips Elliott of Campbell County.  Robert married Louisa Catherine Mann on 12-29-1853 and they had the following children: Robert Fletcher, Nannie, William, Philip Terrell, Mary E., Georgianna, Chamford and Thomas H. Elliott.  Mr. Elliott enlisted on 3-5-1862 at Campbell County Court House in Patteson's Co, VA Heavy Artillery as 4th Corporal  and transferred to the 18th VA Heavy Artillery. He was reduced in rank to Private around November 1863. Private Elliott was taken prisoner on 4-6-1865 at Burkes Farm and sent to Newport News on 4-14-1865. He took the oath and was released on 7-1-1865.  Mr. Elliott returned home to live and  work at Rock Castle Farm, which was owned by the famous Dr. John J. Terrell of Lynchburg. Dr. Terrell , a Quaker, is well known for his work at the Pest House as well as being one of the best physicians in that time period. On September 22, 1869 Mr. Elliott was murdered after arguing with a neighbor over a dog. The man who murdered Mr. Elliott was Samuel Clay, son of General Olin Green Clay of Lynchburg.  Mr. Clay never went to trail for this murder - his court dates came up three time and after the third time the charges were dropped as he did not receive a speedy trial. Mr. Elliott was laid to rest in the Farmer-Burrus Graveyard, Evington Virginia in Campbell County. Mr. Elliott's wife Louisa was buried next to him in October 1927. A marker was placed there in her honor on 12-3-2006. Many of the Elliott descendents still live in and around the Campbell County area and about 70 of them were in attendance for these marker dedication.
