July 6, 2013. The Pungo Rangers. From the book "Princess Anne County, Virginia: Its Contributions and Sacrifices to The War Between The States" by Kenneth Harris

In the Fall of 1862, John T. Caffee and David H. Bright had been in Princess Anne County with a company of about fifty or so men known as the Pungo Rangers. They were acting as a Partisan Home Guard unit wreaking havoc on patrolling Yankee regiments in the County. However, they were not yet mustered into the Confederate army. This would soon change. Caffee’s company consisted of such men as, Caleb and William White of Knotts Island, Virginius Land who resided near Kempsville, Solomon and Jesse Caffee of Pungo Ridge, Jesse and James Caffee of Nanneys Creek, Gideon Willkerson, Johnathan, Samuel, and William Ansell, Tully Capps, William J. and William G. Simpson, William Smith, Jarvis, Corey, John, David, and John J. Waterfield, along with James and Edward Ward, all from Knotts Island. Martin Grimstead, and Wilson Dudley both from Back Bay, Elzy Morse of Morse Point, William Munden of Princess Anne, William Shipp who resided near the Princess Anne Courthouse, Theophulas Bartee who lived between Kempsville and the Princess Anne Courthouse, Theoderic Moore of Pungo Ridge, William Carroll of Blackwater, James Brinson, William “Bill” Parker, and Luke Hill also from Princess Anne. All of these men were by conscript either too old or too young to enlist in the regular Confederate army, and would later become part of Burroughs’ Battalion Partisan Rangers Company A.
