Pegram, John (b. 16 NOV 1773, d. 8 APR 1831)
Note: John Pegram inherited much land from his father and expanded his holdings. He was a gentleman justice of Dinwiddie County, a member of the Virginia House of Delegates from 1797 to 1801, and a member of the Virginia Senate from 1804 to 1808.

A brigadier general in the Virginia Militia, John Pegram served nobly in the War of 1812 and was raised to the rank of Major General before the war's end. During the presidency of James Monroe, Pegram served as Untied States Marshal for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Pegram was the grandfather of Brigadier General John Pegram (1832-1865) and Colonel William R. J. Pegram (1842-1865), both of whom gave their lives for the Confederacy and are prominently mentioned in D. S. Freeman's Lee's Lieutenants. Of the latter, Robert E. Lee wrote after the war that "no one in the army had a higher opinion of his gallantry and worth than myself." Freeman wrote that he was "one of those rare men who expand in battle." There is a recent book on Col. Pegram, entitled Lee's Young Artillerist by Peter S. Carmichael.

Pegram, Edward (b. 4 MAR 1722, d. 1795)
Note: Edward Pegram was orphaned when only about five years of age and who raised him is not known. He was apprenticed to a bricklayer, named Matthew Harfield, when he was fifteen years old.

When he asked Daniel Baker for the hand of his daughter he was refused, because he was only a young brick layer with no family and no property. He said that he would come at a certain time and if she wished to accompany him she could, if not she could remain with her parents. She went with him.

Within a few years, by means entirely unknown (for the records of Dinwiddie County from this period are lost), he was a very wealthy man, with several plantations and many slaves. The Bakers tried to mend fences with him, but he would have none of it, although one of his sons was named Baker and the name has passed down through the family ever since.

On Sep 9, 1780, he hosted a Methodist meeting at his house in Dinwiddie County, where Francis Ashby, who had been appointed minister "Over our brethren in America" by John Wesley, preached.
