GRIMES, Bryan, soldier, born in Pitt County, North Carolina, 2 November, 1828; died near Bear Creek, Pitt County, North Carolina, 14 Aug., 1880. His grandfather, William, was a patriot of the Revolution. Bryan was graduated at the University of North Carolina in 1848, and engaged in planting until he entered the Confederate army in 1861 as major of the 4th North Carolina regiment. He served throughout the war, and attained the rank of senior major-general in "Stonewall" Jackson's corps, his division making the last charge at Appomattox. After the war he returned to agricultural pursuits. While driving at nightfall along the public road, two miles from his residence, he was fired upon and killed. The assassin was never discovered, but was supposed to be a sympathizer with the accused in a criminal suit in which General Grimes was an important witness.
