438. JAMES CARMICHAEL HERNDON: (348 Lucy) He and his twin (Dabney) were born at Culpeper on September 22, 1831. He received his early education in Fredericksburg, and, when a lad, assisted his father in his office preparatory to attending the University of Virginia, where, during the sessions of 1849-50, he took courses in chemistry, medicine, physiology and surgery, and anatomy, during which time he lived in room 48, East Lawn. Later, he completed his medical studies and was graduated from the Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, after which, he was appointed Assistant Surgeon, U. S. Army. At the outbreak of the Civil War, he joined the Confederate Army, serving at one time on the staff of General Robert E. Lee. At the close of the war, he settled at Culpeper Court House where he married Mary Catlett Lightfoot on February 1, 1865. After the death of his wife, January 22, 1872, he moved to Savannah, Georgia, and became associated with his father in the practice of medicine. He served his adopted city faithfully during the fateful epidemic of yellow fever in 1876. Upon the outbreak of the fever in Florida the following year, he volunteered his services to aid the stricken city of Fernandina. Twelve days later, he was stricken with the disease; and five days later died- October 16, 1877 - another martyr to the cause of suffering humanity.
