Fitzhugh, An American Family

 

This is a collection of data accumulated since 1969 from various sources, including the web pages, books, newspapers, court house documents, and individuals (both Fitzhugh and non-Fitzhugh), etc.

 

My purpose is track the male Fitzhugh line from William Fitzhugh the Immigrant to present day Fitzhugh. Due to some security fears I have not included anyone I have identified as Tenth generation and on except where data shows them with the Ninth generation descendants (usually obituaries provide this). I do not trace female Fitzhugh, other than husbands, due to the practical aspect of creating a jungle versus just a nice tree with many branches.

 

A few of the male Fitzhugh have no children indicated and where I was able to find a determination of no children I designate them on my Master Fitzhugh Chart as:

 

“End of the Line”

 

You may have seen this chart at the Fitzhugh Reunions in Fredericksburg. What I need is knowledge of the many families where no descendants are listed.

 

I would like to receive more data and corrections to the data.

Please put in subject line:     “The Fitzhugh Tree”

 

Personally: it would be fun to hear from other Fitzhugh aficionados.

The First Fitzhugh Generation of the USA

 

1.0                         

William Fitzhugh – was born at Bedford, (Bedfordshire), England5 on 9 January 16511,the son of Henry Fitzhugh and Mary King. His father Henry was of Bedfordshire and moved to London to practice law. He was baptized on 10 January 1651 in England, came alone to the Colony of Virginia about 1670, apparently to try his fortune, and settled in Westmoreland County, “Eagle’s Nest” then later in Stafford County, at Bedford on the Rappahannock., where he built Bedford on the Potomac. He practiced law, served in the House of Burgesses and was a Lt. Col. in the Stafford militia. He was also agent for the Fairfax’s who inherited the Northern Neck from Lord Culpeper. It was during this tenure that he confirmed the grant of Ravensworth in what was then upper Stafford County. He had bought the grant from a man named John Matthews in 1685 and had it re-granted and finally confirmed by 1694. His was 21,996 acres paralleling the (John) Alexander grant, later Alexandria, and covering the approximate territory from what is now part of Falls Church to Pohink Church and from the present Fairfax Court House almost to Alexandria.

He was well educated, a shrewd business man, a lawyer, and was religious. His church was the established church of England. The only thing he regretted about America was the lack of good schools. He wrote: "Good education of children is almost impossible and better be never born than ill bred." He owned 54,000 acres or more of land with four big houses on them.

The houses were Eagle's Nest, Bedford, Bellaire, and Boscobel. Two and half years after his marriage, he, as a young lawyer-planter, was elected to the House of Burgesses from Stafford County, serving in 1672.  He became a prominent citizen and large land holder. In a letter dated April 22, 1686, William Fitzhugh describes his dwelling house: "Upon this same land is my own dwelling house furnished with all accommodations for a comfortable and gentle living, with rooms in it, four of the best of them hung (with tapestry), nine of them plentifully furnished with all things necessary and convenient, and all houses for use, furnished with brick chimneys, four good cellars, a dairy, dove cote, stable, barn, henhouse, kitchen and all other conveniences, and all in a manner new, a large orchard of about 2,500 apple trees, most grafted, well fenced with a locust fence, which is a durable as most brick walls, a garden a hundred foot square, well paled in, a yard wherein is most of the aforesaid necessary houses palisaded in more lasting than any of our bricks."

His letters give a valuable insight into the business procedures of a Virginia capitalist between 1679 and 1699. He prepared for publication a digest of Virginia Law and contemplated writing a history of Virginia.

The Stafford County Deed Book_ pp. 267-276 records that Richard Cary sold to Wm Fitzhugh, the grandfather of Wm Fitzhugh and whereas Wm Fitzhugh did by will Oct 1701 give unto his son George all the land he bought of Mr. Cary.

On "June 14, 1682 from the Minutes of Board of Trade and Plantations. The addresses of the Assembly and the Governor of Virginia, and several speeches of Mr. Fitzhugh were read, showing the people are extremely desirous of a cessation of planting tobacco."

 

William had a wife, married about 1673, in England by the name of Elizabeth, just eight months prior to his marriage to Sarah Mary Tucker6.  On 1 May 16742 he married secondly Sarah Mary Tucker, born 2 August 1663 in Westmoreland County, Virginia.  The family was from Bermuda.  She was the eldest daughter of John Tucker and Rosanna (Rose) Sturman.  In 1674 Sarah Mary Tucker, at the age of eleven, was chosen by William Fitzhugh to be his bride. Her mother Mrs. Rose Tucker recorded her deed of gifts on 26 August 1674 in consideration of the marriage. She gave him numerous items, including two negroes, cattle, a gelding, jewelry and many household items ‘from the place known as Mr. Tucker’s Plantation’. Fitzhugh ‘Family tradition insists that the young husband sent his wife to England for two years of education before the marriage should be consummated, ‘ etc. At age 27 she was a widow with six children and married secondly Col. James Taylor. She died in Stafford County, Virginia in October 1704 and was buried at Eagle’s Nest.

William Fitzhugh came to Westmoreland County, a young lawyer and must have thought his family may have been descended from the Fitzhughs, barons of Ravensworth. The family coat of arms had been recorded in 1566 and if his view of life was thus somewhat baronial there was nothing in the new world to stand in the way of achieving his ideal. Lord Culpepper before him had laid claim to all of the Northern Neck of Virginia and had proved his claim and Robert Carter after him was to carve an actual Kingdom from the new territory. It has been surmised and proven by Henry Fitzhugh (TexasLondon) that he had adopted the wrong coat of arms and has no proof that he was descended from the barons of Ravensworth.)

William’s five sons were:  William, Henry, Thomas, George, and John, who inherited from their father at his death 54, 054 acres of land in the counties of King George, Stafford and Essex.  The proverbial old homesteads, “Eagle’s Nest” and “Bedford” in King George, and “Bellaire” and “Boscobel” in Stafford were originally a part of those 54,054 acres.  Several of these were among the most prominent homesteads in Tidewater, Virginia.  From these sons of William Fitzhugh (born in 1650) descended all the families of Fitzhugh in Virginia, Maryland and western New York. The will of William Fitzhugh has been pronounced the most remarkable document of the kind ever recorded in Virginia, and has perhaps attracted more attention and caused wider comment than ever did any will in Virginia.  As a unique composition, fraught with pious phraseology, a copy of it was filed with a large manuscript volume of his letters in the library at Cambridge, Mass., something like a hundred years ago, and in a tedious research for certain data, it was subsequently brought here, and deposited in the rooms of the Historical Society of Virginia.  When the famous Robert Beverly, the first of the name, was persecuted and imprisoned for “independence”, insurrection bordering on treason, William Fitzhugh was his counsel.  He was the author of the first work on Virginia laws ever published in England.  It is supposed this was written when he was attorney general for this commonwealth.

 

Notwithstanding conflicting opinions in the eighteenth century, it can here be positively and authoritatively stated that the William Fitzhugh in question was the “renowned lawyer” who represented Lord Culpeper in various real estate transactions with this country, and that he purchased thousands and thousands of acres of land from Lord Culpeper when he (Culpeper) held a grant from King Charles for the whole of Virginia.  A letter from William Fitzhugh written to his afflicted mother in 1694 has bee preserved [where?????] with sacred care from generation to generation as a most remarkable production, abounding deeply in pious declarations of faith in God, teeming with touching exhortations and beautiful with pleas for higher Christianity and purer morals among men of that day.

Colonel Fitzhugh was not; as some of the historical novelists would have us believe our forefathers were, unscrupulous, brash, and fascinatingly immoral. The records indicate that he was religions, hones, and a fine lawyer, quoted the Scriptures while pleading a case. He was very sympathetic to French Huguenots who fled France when the Edict of Nantes was revoked by Louis XIV. Unlike the Sun King, he looked upon them as the most desirable of citizens and offered them land to settle.

At his death Colonel Fitzhugh left approximately 50,000 acres of land in Virginia besides property in Maryland and England to his five sons and one daughter. The Ravensworth tract was divided between two sons, Henry and William, Henry receiving 12,585 acres to the north and William a little over 9,000 to the south.  (Source: _Historical Society of Fairfax County, Virginia_ vol. 3 1954)


The British-born William Fitzhugh (1651–1701) was among the first Virginia colonists to establish a dynasty on the land. In this portrait he looks more like a prominent Londoner than a resident of what was still a colonial backwater. Fitzhugh chose a rural life because it seemed the quickest way to make money; he used slaves to cultivate his 54,000 acres, which were largely in tobacco. He was a self-made man, a successful planter and lawyer, who had accomplished much with the opportunities afforded him in Virginia. However, Fitzhugh was never entirely comfortable with his achievements, because his newly won wealth was tenuous, given the fluctuation of tobacco prices, and his social position was gained in a largely undeveloped setting where he felt isolated.

Virginia was "a strange land" to Fitzhugh, where his peers expected him to project a "creditable" appearance. Once he did so, he could live "comfortably & handsomely." He "never courted unlawfull pleasures with women, avoided hard drinking as much as lay in my power, & always avoided feasting." On occasion he entertained visitors with "good wine, . . . three fiddlers, a jester, a tight-rope dancer, [and] an acrobat who tumbled around." He furnished his large, thirteen-room house handsomely, with tapestries and an extraordinary collection of 122 pieces of English silver, much of it engraved with the family crest. The silver answered well Fitzhugh's conflicting urges for moderation and luxury. He termed his collecting both "politic" and "reputable," meaning that silver was a sound financial investment (it could be melted) that at the same time made a social statement about dynasty.

 

A tale of a visiting Frenchman:

 

 "A French visitor to the Rappahannock Valley in 1684 saw the young plantation society [not always flatteringly depicted] in first bloom.  Durand de Dauphine was a Huguenot exile from the Catholic-Protestant conflict in his native country. Virginia gentlemen gave Durand a guided tour of the Rappahannock Valley, hoping he would recruit Huguenot settlers for the area. Everywhere he went, the Frenchman was treated as a distinguished guest.

"Durand's first view of Virginians at play came at a wedding. The marriage occurred in Gloucester, but the celebration was probably very similar to the affairs a short distance up the peninsula in Rappahannock County.  A hundred spirited Virginians attended the all-day event:

" 'We were twenty-four at the first table. They served us so copiously with meats of all kinds that I am sure there would have been enough for a regiment of five hundred soldiers . . . The [Virginians] eat almost no bread, seldom drink during meals; but they did nothing afterwards for the rest of the day and all night, but drink, smoke, sing, and dance. The had no wine: they drank beer, cider, and punch, a mixture prepared in a large bowl. They put in three jugs of beer, three jugs of brandy, three pounds of sugar, some nutmeg & cinnamon, mix these well together & when the sugar has melted they drink it, & while making away with the first, they prepared another bowl of it.' "

"Durand remarked that the next morning he "did not see one who could stand straight." Guests stayed overnight at parties in the colonial era, because travel was difficult even in the daytime. The ladies slept on beds and cots while men slept on the floor.

The plentiful meats mentioned by Durand certainly included venison. He wrote that there were 'such a great numbers of red & fallow deer that you cannot enter a house without being served venison. It is very good in pies, boiled or baked.' "

"Durand enjoyed more extravagant partying at the home of King George County planter William Fitzhugh. Fitzhugh was a forerunner of the wealthy Virginia gentlemen who entertained on a lavish scale. Durand was part of a company of twenty men who descended on the planter:

" 'He treated us royally, there was good wine and all kinds of beverages, so there was a great deal of carousing. He had sent for three fiddlers, a jester, a tightrope dancer, an acrobat who tumbled around, & they gave us all the entertainment one could wish for. I was very cold, yet no one thinks of ever going near the fire, for they never put less than a cartload of wood in the fireplace & the whole room is kept warm. . . .' "

"Tobacco has always been another Virginia pleasure.  Life in colonial Essex revolved around growning, selling, and smoking tobacco.  Durand found this habit the most interesting aspect of a visit to a Rappahannock Valley church:

" ' Large quantities of it are used in this country, besides what they sell. Everyone smokes while working & idling.  I sometimes went to hear the sermon; their churches are in the woods, & when everyone has arrived the minister & all the others smoke before going in.  The preaching over, they do the same thing before parting.  They have seats for that purpose.  It was here I saw that everyone smokes, men, women, girls and boys from the age of seven years . . .'

It is out of print. William’s painting is owned by Mrs. Robert H. Stevenson, of Boston, Massachusetts4. He was a member of the Episcopal Church.  He served as LCol in the Stafford County militia. He died in Stafford County, Virginia 21 October 1701 and is buried at Eagle’s Nest located in King George County, Virginia.

The Second Fitzhugh Generation

 

                    This generation of the Fitzhugh's was raised and enjoyed the surroundings of the Eagle's Nest built by William Fitzhugh.

 

2.1          William Fitzhugh – was born 1674 in "Bedford", King George County, Virginia, the eldest son of William Fitzhugh and Sarah Mary Tucker.  William married in 1699 in Westmoreland County to Mary Anne Lee who was born 1683 in Machodoc, Westmoreland County, Virginia and she died in 12 January 1732 at Eagle’s Nest, King George County. Mary was the daughter of Richard Lee and Laetitia Corbin.  She married secondly on 27 May 1719 in N. Farnham Parish, Richmond, Virginia to Daniel McCarty. Capt Daniel McCarty was of Westmoreland County and was speaker of the House of Burgess 1715 – 1720.

                Captain William Fitzhugh of "Eagle's Nest" inherited 1800 acres of land in Stafford and Westmoreland Counties. Boscobel was conveyed to William Fitzhugh in 1692 according to Jerrilyn Eby, author of _They Called Stafford Home_. He was the Justice of Stafford County., member of the House of Burgesses in 1700, Governor of the College of William and Mary in 1702 and High Sheriff in 1707;

                William Fitzhugh inherited under his father's will 18,723 acres of land in Stafford and Westmoreland; was residuary legatee of all lands not bequeathed, and rights to lands in Virginia, Maryland and England; eight negroes; 18 pieces of silver plate; L200 sterling out of his father's money in England; half the household furniture; "my own and my wife's pictures, the other six pictures of my relations, and the large map in the study", half of his father's "study of books", & c. He was appointed clerk of Stafford county, July 18, 1701, and was a member of the House of Burgesses for that county, 1700, 1701 and 1702 (Stafford Records).  Possibly he was a member in other years.  On Dec. 13, 1711, the Lords of Trade and Plantations presented a representation to the Queen, recommending William Fitzhugh, Esq., as a person fully qualified to fill a vacancy in the Council, being a good estate, and being well affected towards her Majesty's government (Sainsbury Abstracts).  The appointment made on Dec. 19 and Fitzhugh took the oaths in Virginia, October 15, 1712 (Council Journal).  His tenure of office was short, for his last appearance in Council was in Nov. 8, 1713, and Jan. 27, 1713-14, there is an entry in the Council Journal that he was dead.  Besides the offices named, Wm. Fitzhugh was a justice of Stafford, and High Sheriff in 1707. If he made a will it was doubtless recorded in Stafford, but the books of that date have been lost. William died UNKNOWN December 1713 and is buried at Eagle’s Nest.

                His wife Anne Lee had grown up at Mt. Pleasant with her five brothers in a most erudite atmosphere. Her father, "who neither improved nor diminished his estate" could write in Latin, Greek, Hebrew, French, but he paid little attention to his business affairs, he left Anne 4000 acres in Stafford county that he no longer owned.

 

Her tombstone in the family cemetery (at Eagle's Nest) reads:

“Here Lies The Body of Anne the Daughter of The Honorable Richard Lee Esq. She was first married to The Honourable William Fitzhugh esq. Whom she surviv'd By whom she had Issue, Henry, Lettice & Sarah who are still living. She was afterward married to Daniel M'Carty, Esq. Whom she also Surviv'd By him, she had Issue, Anne Who d'yed (an inf.) Her surviving Children erect this Monument To Her Precious Memory Wou'd They like Her obtain In this Life the Love & Praise of all And in the next Eternal Happiness Let Them Imitate The Good & Pious Pattern. She departed this Life Jan'Y. 12th 1731. In the 49th year of her Age.”

 

  As copied from The Vistas of "Eagle's Nest" by Liza Lawrence.


From the Westmoreland County will of Anne McCarty 7 Nov 1728; 31 May 1732. “To each of my own brothers and their wives a ring; a ring to Col. John Tayloe; son Henry Fitzhugh all my lands, my 1st wedding ring and my grandfather Corbin's mourning ring; to Elizabeth dau. of Major J. Fitzhugh a gold ring; to daughter Lettice 2 negroes; dau. Sarah Fitzhugh 2 negroes; Billington McCarty my last wedding ring; to Thaddeus McCarty a stone ring; to Sarah Beale my hoop ring. I discharge my brothers H. Fitzhugh and Thomas and Henry Lee from the bills of exchange to my late husband McCarty. Negroes in the hands of the husband of my daughter Lettice to be hers."

2.2               Henry Fitzhugh - was born 15 January 1686 in Eagle's Nest, King George County, Virginia, the son of William Fitzhugh and Sarah Mary Tucker.  On 24 February 1717 he married Susannah A. Cooke, who was born 7 December 1693 in Gloucester County, Virginia and died 21 November 1749 in King George County, Virginia. Her tombstone is in St. Paul's Churchyard, King George County, Virginia. She was the daughter of Mordecai and Joan Constable Cooke of Gloucester County of "Mordecai Mount", Gloucester County, Va.  Joan came to the colony from England soon after Bacon’s Rebellion. Her mother may also have been Frances Ironmonger instead of Joan Constable ????). He was High Sheriff of Gloucester County 1698, and Justice of the Peace, and Burgess 1702-14.

                Henry was the scholar of the Second Generation Fitzhughs. He was sent at age eleven to Bristol for school and to Westminster School at age 14, and then on to Christ Church, Oxford, matriculating on 30 October 1722. He was a Member of the Assembly Resolution of 1720, Virginia Assembly. Later he became a Tobacco Agent, Justice of the Peace (High Sheriff in 1715) and Burgess in 1736. 

                He owned 17,598 acres of land in Stafford County. He inherited "Boscobel" in 1701. His half of the Ravensworth patent remained in the family intact until his grandson Henry Fitzhugh, who also lived at Bedford, partitioned it in 1783 among his five younger sons, Nicholas, Richard, Mordecai, Battaille, and Giles. By the end of the Second Generation the northern half of the tract had been sold out of the family.

                He was a liberal supporter of the Established Church and a Vestryman.

                He was known as 'Blind Henry' because he had one bad eye, which evident in his portrait. John Hesselius painted the portrait of Captain Henry Fitzhugh when Henry was sixty-four. It is said that although Fitzhugh had a sight impairment, he was still a man of dignity and character. Henry was impeccably groomed and dressed. His character was developed early. Henry was tutored since age three by an immigrant Frenchman, and until age eleven when he was sent to England for further education, Henry could only read and write in French. Instructions stated that Henry was to be furnished with clothing "fit & decent" rather than "rich and gaudy." Although Henry was a second son, Henry so distinguished himself as a scholar that he was willed half his father's large library. In turn he dutifully served in both county government and at Williamsburg, bringing credit to the family. He inherited the Bedford plantation and he built the "Bedford Estate" in Virginia.

He died at his Bedford estate on 12 December 1758 in King George County. He was originally buried at a cemetery on his Father, William Fitzhugh's, plantation estate, "Bedford,". He was later moved and his tombstone is in St. Paul's Churchyard, King George County.

2.3          Thomas Fitzhugh - was born 1688 in "Bedford", King George County, Virginia, the son of William Fitzhugh and Sarah Mary Tucker. Thomas married about 1716 to Mrs. Ann Fowke (Mason) Darrale. She was born before 1695, daughter of Col George Mason and Anne Fowke (Fouke), and widow of William Darrell (16??-1715). She was the widow of William Darrell (16??-1715) and had a son Sampson Darrell (1712-1777) who died testate in Fairfax County. She married thirdly Thomas Smith (d. 1764) who died testate in Fairfax County; his will mentions three children, viz: (1) Susanna Smith; (2) Mary Smith (married Mr. Hancock); and (3) William Smith (172?-1802) who died testate in Mason County Kentucky. Thomas was Stafford County Clerk in 1714, having served for a few years, and then died while in office. Thomas was of “Bellaire”. Thomas Fitzhugh received by the will of his father nearly 5,000 acres of land. A tract of 1,1oo acres lay near Fredericksburg. At the time of Thomas Fitzhugh this property was in Richmond County and his last will and Testament is recorded there.

                Thomas died UNKNOWN June 1715 in Richmond, Virginia. He died without male issue, so his property went through his father to William Fitzhugh (4.1.1.4) (1741-1809) of Chatham.

Anne Fowke (Mason) Darrell Fitzhugh married thirdly Thomas Smith who died in 1764), dying in testate in Fairfax County. Smith’s will mentions three children, (1) Susanna Smith; (2) Mary Smith (married Mr. Hancock); and (3) William Smith (172?-1802) who died testate in Mason County Kentucky.

2.5          John Fitzhugh – was born 1693 in Stafford County, Virginia, the son of William Fitzhugh and Sarah Mary Tucker. John married in Westmoreland County, St. Paul’s Parish on 5 December 1715 to Anne Barbara McCarty, was born in 30 November 1700 in Westmoreland County, the eldest daughter of Captain Daniel (Dennis) McCarty and Elizabeth Pope of Westmoreland County a shown by the inscription that was on the McCarty tomb in Old Yeomocico church listing the children It appears that Anna Barbara was only 15 at the time of her marriage. We know that Capt. Daniel McCarty was pleased by this marriage because on 5 Dec 1715, he made a deed of trust of 9 negro slaves (six females with "one large girl" and three males) for the newlywed couple. Another reason for his pleasure might have been that he was married to the widow (Ann Lee Fitzhugh of John's eldest brother (William Fitzhugh). Thus John Fitzhugh was both son-in-law and brother-in-law to Capt. D. McCarty. Even more indicative of his regard for John Fitzhugh, Capt. D. McCarty made him executor of his will and John Fitzhugh was to "take the tree youngest children" to raise. Perhaps Capt. D. McCarty remembered his own childhood when he had non-related guardians. She married secondly about 1734 in Virginia to Adam Crump, son of James Crump and Catherine Mayo. Adam was born before 1698, and died 1753 in Lancaster County, Virginia.  She died 12 December 1737 in Stafford County, Virginia.

                John was of "Marmion" which he owned.  Marmion was probably built by John Fitzhugh early in 18th century and later named for Scott's poem. About 1785 it passed from Philip Fitzhugh to George Washington's favorite nephew, who died there. The place has come down in the Lewis family in direct line from him. The richly decorated interior is one of the best in Virginia. It is located in King George County; 2.3 mi. west of King George (east of Fredericksburg) Marmion still stands but is not open to the public. The living room of the house is now in the Metropolitan Museum in New York.

                John was a Major and in February 1727 his name appears among many others as a Trustee in the founding of the Town of Falmouth, probably a commercial venture. In a letter written by one Anne Jones on June 27, 1732, she refers to Major John Fitzhugh's copper mine in Virginia. John died 21 January 1732/33 in Stafford County, Virginia...

By Major John Fitzhugh, Anna Barbara had seven children. In SPVF, this is described as the MARMION branch of the Fitzhughs.

2.6          Rosamond Fitzhugh – was born about 1680 in Westmoreland County, the daughter of William Fitzhugh and Sarah Mary Tucker. Rosamond married Col. Willoughby Allerton1about 1698. He was born about 1664 in Westmoreland County, Virginia. He was appointed a sheriff for Westmoreland County on 25 April 1707. In a Westmoreland County will WILLOUGHBY ALLERTON, gent., 17 Jan 1723; 8 April 1724 bequeathed “Land, stock and 3 slaves to wife Hannah; son Isaac land whereon I live and 300 acres or land and two-thirds of estate; dau. Elizabeth Allerton 200 acres and one-third estate; son exr; my wife's daus. Hannah and Sarah Bushrod personal property of the father and mother. Land on Machotick; land formerly Capt. John Bushrod's and person estate of his to my wife and her daus.; to wife the school master Joshua Nelson and 3 more white servants.” He died about 1724 in Westmoreland County, Virginia.  William Allerton was a grandson of Isaac Allerton, who immigrated in the Mayflower.

Cooke in Bedford, Stafford County, Virginia.  Henry married in Caroline County, Virginia to Sarah Battaile on 23 October 1746.  She was the daughter of John Battaile of Flintshire and Sarah Taliaferro, and born on 23 August 1731 in Flintshire. In 1751 Colonel Henry Fitzhugh (1723–1783), the eldest son and principal heir of Captain Henry Fitzhugh, was twenty-eight and had been married for five years. He would become the father of thirteen children. Following in the family tradition, the colonel's public service already included command in the county militia that carried a title. He is shown by John Hesselius to be a man of intelligence, refinement, and confidence, keenly aware of both his heritage and his capabilities.

Henry Fitzhugh emerges from the documentary record as a notable patron of art, modeled after the example of his exceptional grandfather, William. At his home, Bedford, the colonel displayed the family portrait gallery. Included were the images that he commissioned from Hesselius of himself, his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. It followed that in the early 1770s, his grown daughter, son, and daughter-in-law would extend the dynastic collection further by commissioning their own portraits from the same artist.

The will of "Col. Henry Fitzhugh, of Bedford, King George Co., formerly Stafford," was dated 12 February 1783, and proved in King George, 5 June 1783: Legatees -- Wife; Son John Battaile Fitzhugh - lands in Caroline and Orange; son William - land on Cedar Run, Fauquier County; son George - land on Turkey Run, Fauquier county; son Thomas - a tract of 800 acres in Fauquier county; to youngest sons, Nicholas, Richard, Mordecai, Battaile and Giles - lands in Fairfax called Ravensworth; to his grandson and heir - Henry Fitzhugh - all his lands in King George and Stafford.

 

The portrait of Colonel Henry Fitzhugh is the property of Mr. F. C. Fitzhugh, of Bedford, King George County, Virginia.

 

Henry died 17 February 1783.

Alice’s obituary read: "On Friday last died, of a short illness, Mrs. Eliza Fitzhugh, wife of Mr. John Fitzhugh, of Stafford County, in the 61st year of her age. She was the mother of thirteen children, all of them bred up and settled out in that regular decent manner as to the patterns of sobriety, industry, and good behavior to all around them; these, with their children, amount in the number of 54. And what is very remarkable, that amidst all the cares, troubles and difficulties, of so laborious a task, and the additional misfortune of her husband being blind for near twenty years, she lived with him in so constant a tenor of conjugal affection, that not a harsh word or untoward expression ever passed between them; such are the comforts of the matrimonial state when rightly conducted. Her loss is much deplored by her acquaintances and affectionate children, but it is and must be peculiarly distressing to her surviving husband, who has now no one left to live with him to cheer the melancholy residue of his days of darkness." (Fredericksburg _Virginia Herald_ of March 11, 1790; Eliza is a typographical error for Alice.)

William married on 28 March 1744 to Martha (Mrs. Turberville) Lee, who was born in London, England in UNKNOWN in 1716 and died 12 November 1751 in Virginia. She was the daughter of Richard Lee and Martha Silk. William married secondly on 7 January 1752 to Ann (Mrs. John Rousby) Peregrine Frisby, who was born in Cecil County, Maryland in 1727 and died in March 1793 in Calvert County, Maryland. He moved from Virginia to Hagerstown, Maryland in Calvert County, Maryland before the Revolution. He was a Colonel in the British army at the time of the Revolution. He refused to fight against America, surrendered his commission and probably was detained as a prisoner during the war. Ann defended her husband, who was blind, and assisted her two sons to escape when her home was threatened by a detachment of British. He was a member of the Maryland convention, 1776, and afterward member of the Council of State. He lived at his mansion and plantation called “The Hive”. It was built in the late 1700’s or early 1800’s. His son Peregrine William Fitzhugh may have lived in the home after his father’s death. The Fitzhugh family seems to have left the Calvert County area in about 1803 when William Peregrine Fitzhugh went to New York and founded Rochester with Carroll and Hughes. Someone in the family stayed here and owned the house until about mid-1800, but it must have been a daughter.  The local historical society has two letters (1945 and 1965) referring to the house and implies that family members lived in it after the move to New York and it definitely was thought of with pride (it was once a wonderful house).  Both letters are hoping to bring the historical society to do something about the preservation of the house.  The author of one letter is a Mrs. Stanley N. Brown named Elizabeth.  She is related but unknown how.  She lived in Leesburg, Virginia in 1965 and I assume is deceased.  The other letter’s author is the granddaughter of a woman who lived in the house and was a Fitzhugh relative. “War Billy” died 11 February 1798 in Calvert County, Maryland and is buried in Hagerstown, Maryland. His will follows on the next few pages.

William Fitzhugh (August 24, 1741 – June 6, 1809) was an American planter and statesman who served as a delegate to the Continental Congress for Virginia in 1779. [1]

Life

Fitzhugh and his wife, Ann Bolling Randolph (1747-1805), built Chatham Manor on property across the Rappahannock River from Fredericksburg, Virginia, between 1768 and 1771. It still stands today as the National Park Service Headquarters for the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park. The Fitzhughs lived a lavish life there that included experimental farming and horse racing. After the Revolutionary War, as the economy floundered, Fitzhugh sold Chatham Manor and 1,288 acres (5.2 km²) to Churchill Jones for $20,000.

About 1799, William Fitzhugh bought the house in 607 Oronoco St., Alexandria, Virginia, that has become known as "The Boyhood Home of Robert E. Lee." The house was built in 1795 by John Potts, Jr. After William Fitzhugh's death, it then passed to William Henry Fitzhugh, his only son, and was rented to the Lee family.

Fitzhugh had built another mansion, Ravensworth, in 1796, where North Springfield, Virginia, is now located. This was his country home, with the Alexandria one being his townhouse. Ravensworth stood until about 1925, when it burned under mysterious circumstances.[2]

William Fitzhugh and George Washington visited one another frequently until Washington's death in 1799, with Washington mentioning Fitzhugh in his diary and the two serving together on the Pohick Church vestry[3]. Fitzhugh was the last person that Washington visited outside of Mount Vernon before his death.

Political career

He was chosen as an elector for the 1789 election from Westmoreland District [4]. That District consisted of King George County, Lancaster County, Northumberland County, Richmond County, Stafford County and Westmoreland County, which cover the area between the Rappahannock and Potomac Rivers[5]. All of the 10 electors who voted cast one of their two votes for George Washington. 5 of them cast their other vote for John Adams. 3 cast theirs for George Clinton. 1 cast his for John Hancock. 1 cast his for John Jay [6]. In a letter written by James Madison to Thomas Jefferson on 29th March 1789, 'Mr W Fitzhugh of Chatham' is described as a Federalist [7]

Family

He was the great-grandson of immigrant Colonel William Fitzhugh who came to Virginia in about 1671 and owned 54,000 acres (220 km²) when he died in 1701. William of Chatham inherited most of the land. As a child he suffered the loss of an eye when accidentally hit with a whip by one of his stepbrothers.

In 1804 Fitzhugh's daughter Mary Lee Fitzhugh was married in the parlor of the Alexandria townhouse to George Washington Parke Custis, grandson of Martha Dandridge Custis Washington and adopted grandson of George Washington. In 1831 their daughter, Mary Anna Randolph Custis, married Robert E. Lee.

Fitzhugh died five years later at the age of 69, leaving behind his three children. He was initially buried at Ravensworth, but when the mansion was destroyed, his remains and gravestone were moved to the Pohick Church graveyard.

4.2.5.10 - Daniel McCarty Fitzhugh -

Daniel McCarty Fitzhugh - was born 09 May 1763 in King George County, Virginia, He was the son of John Fitzhugh and Alice Thornton. He died on 2 May 1823 in King George County, Virginia, at age 59.

He never married. In his will, he acknowledged that he was the father of five children by his housekeeper Elizabeth Cullom. She was born about 1774 and died in May 1823. Researcher's Note: Her age at the time of the 1800 census was recorded as being between 26 and 44, making her birth year sometime between 1756 and 1774. Her last child was born in 1823, and she would have been about 49 years old. Therefore, her year of birth is most likely closer to 1774. She appeared in the census of 4 August 1800 at King George County, Virginia, as head of household. She appeared in the census of 7 August 1820 at King George County, Virginia, as head of household.

A recent internet advertisement writes:

Black sheep fall into two categories, those we talk about and those we don't. The more distance time places between us, the more likely we are to admit to their existence. It is often difficult for the researcher to obtain information about a particular branch of a family because of the reticence of those who don't want to talk about certain family members. These prodigals sometimes disappear from the family tree or are listed without progeny. Such is the case of Daniel McCarty Fitzhugh who was the tenth child of John and Alice Thornton Fitzhugh and the great grandson of the immigrant William Fitzhugh. Much has been published about the Fitzhugh family and many of the published Fitzhugh genealogies state that William was a lifelong bachelor who died without heirs. However, in his will (reproduced) recorded in King George Will Book 3 he names five children whom he had by "Elizabeth Cullom, my housekeeper." William left an extensive estate to his children and this compilation follows each child to the present generation. Although specific documentation (book and page number) is not always provided, the author carefully presents the records which support and do not support a specific connection. The text is well-written and easy to follow and the numerous pictures of the early generations make this a family treasure.”

4.5.2.2 - Robert Fitzhugh - was born about 1743 in Virginia, son of Col. William Fitzhugh and Ursula Beverley. Robert married Margaret (Polly) Bell about 1757. Margaret was born about 1740   and died   .

As Bedford County was cut from Lunenberg County in 1754, it is possible that Robert Sr. was previously a resident of Lunenberg County. His marriage license record to Margaret has not yet been found. So it is possible that some members of this branch of the family were identified with Lunenberg County before it was divided. (From Walter Guy Lane's manuscript _Fitzhugh, Dawson, and Logsdon Family Lineages: Fitzhugh Narrative_A 1955 letter from Mary Trowbridge Elkins (a descendant of Solomon Fitzhugh): "The first records we have of Robert was when he went to Bedford County, Virginia on a small farm and his son Peter was born in Bedford County, VIRGINIA in 1760. The first mention of Robert Fitzhugh is in the Bedford Country, Virginia, Deed Book, No.2 on page 198, dated May 24, 1763, when Richard Stith of Bedford on behalf of the executors of Richard Randolph deeded to Robert Fitzhugh of the same county 105 acres in Bedford County on the south side of Jones Fort of Otter River adjoining Yoatem, being part of the land conveyed by the executors of Richard Randolph, deceased, to the said Richard Stith by power of attorney, Nov. 7, 1761 and recorded in the General Court. Recorded, Bedford, May 23, 1763.Robert paid taxes there from 1782-1797 and the record of Peter's, Robert , Jr., Hannah's marriages are there in Bedford County all before 1797. The record shows also that they sold all this land they owned in Bedford County Sept. 26, 1797 about 155 acres. Some of the family were in the revolution, but no one has taken the trouble to prove it. One relative got in to the D.A.R. on the strength of Robert Jr., but she traced the family wrong.
In the tax lists of 1799 the first Robert, Peter and Robert Jr. are given as living in Logan County Kentucky. After that only the names of Peter and Robert Jr. show on the tax lists. Robert Sr. must have died or gone back to Virginia. We know nothing more of him." Walter Guy Lane reported that "a recent search on Robert Jr.'s burial lot has unearthed two stones with the initials R and M on them, which undoubtedly indicates Robert Sr., and his wife, Margaret." This must have been in the 1940s or 1950s.

The 1787 Bedford County p. 194, Per. Prop. Tax List A has Robert, Sr. (1 horse, mare, colt, or mule and 3 cattle) not tithable. (Reasons for being exempt included: being a woman; being old and infirm---in which case one should be able to find in the county Order Books a law making him exempt; and an occupation of clergyman or professor. Certain political jobs--from constable---at county level--to governor---at the state level--made one exempt. White males between sixteen and twenty-one were subject to a county parish tithe, but not to the state poll tax. Indians were exempt. Persons living out of the county may be listed because they owned property in the county, but they themselves were exempt except in the county in which they resided. Sometimes the tax commissioner notes the county or state in which out-of-county taxpayers lived.)

His father's will disowned him saying something to the effect that if Robert should return to the State he was to receive only 1 shilling because his father had provided him with a good living, and Robert had run off to the "late war".  On Sept. 26, 1797 Robert Fitzhugh, Sr., and wife, Margaret, son Peter Fitzhugh and wife, Nancy, son Robert Fitzhugh, Jr. and wife, Anne, sold 155 acres to John Boles for 60 pounds Virginia currency all these tracts of land at present in the possession of the said Fitzhughs, lying in Bedford County on the branches of Stony Creek and bounded by the lands of Robert Boles, Robert Rosebrook, Abraham Carnes, and the Heirs of Thomas Wood, deceased, containing about 155 acres. Robert died about 1805 in Logan County, Kentucky.

Robert Fitzhugh - was born in "Bedford", Stafford County, Virginia about 1728, son of John Fitzhugh and Anne Barbara McCarty.  Robert married about 1743 to Margaret Bell, who was born about 1730. He died about 1799 in Logan County, Kentucky.

        The following is from a 1955 letter from Mary Trowbridge Elkins (a descendant of Solomon Fitzhugh):

        "The first records we have of Robert were when he went to Bedford County, Virginia on a small farm and his son Peter was born in Bedford County, Virginia in 1760. They paid taxes there from 1782-1797 and the record of Peter's, Robert, Jr., and Hannah's marriages are there in Bedford County all before 1797. I saw a copy of the marriage records. The record shows also that they sold all this land of about 115 acres they owned in Bedford County on Sept. 26, 1797.’

“Some of the family were in the revolution, but so far no one has taken the trouble to prove it. Until now the family had not been traced.

        One relative got in to the D.A.R. on the strength of Robert Jr., but she traced the family wrong and we are to prove that now.

        In the tax lists of 1799 the first Robert, Peter and Robert Jr. are given as living in Logan County Kentucky. After that only the names of Peter and Robert, Jr. show on the tax lists. Walter Lane did this research. Robert Sr. must have died or gone back to Virginia. We know nothing more of him."

        The 1787 Bedford County page 194, Per. Prop. Tax List A: Robert, Sr. (1 horse, mare, colt, or mule and 3 cattle) not tithable. (Reasons for being exempt included: being a woman; being old and infirm---in which case one should be able to find in the county Order Books a law making him exempt; and an occupation of clergyman or professor. Certain political jobs--from constable---at county level--to governor---at the state level--made one exempt. White males between sixteen and twenty-one were subject to a county parish tithe, but not to the state poll tax. Indians were exempt.  Persons living out of the county may be listed because they owned property in the county, but they themselves were exempt except in the county in which they resided. Sometimes the tax commissioner notes the county or state in which out-of-county taxpayers lived.)

        On page 211 Taxpayers By Date Commissioner Received Their Lists. (The commissioner was required to note the day he visited each taxpayer. This makes it possible to rearrange the lists and determine probable neighbors.) Robert, Sr.--4/4----also Peter, Robert, Jr., and George Potter who married Robert, Sr.'s daughter, Hannah.

        Cousin Jan Wolford of TX visited Logan County., Kentucky cemeteries in Sept. 1996 to locate Robert's grave. He did not find it but found that of Robert's son, Robert in Terry Burying Ground.

 

        (This line continues down through Solomon Fitzhugh.)

        =====================================================================

        According to Walter Guy Lane, first mention of Robert Fitzhugh is in the Bedford Country, Virginia, Deed Book, No.2 on page 198, dated May 24, 1763, when Richard Stith of Bedford on behalf of the executors of Richard Randolph deeded to Robert Fitzhugh of the same county 105 acres in Bedford County on the south side of Jones Fort of Otter River adjoining Yoatem, being part of the land conveyed by the executors of Richard Randolph, deceased, to the said Richard Stith by power of attorney, Nov. 7, 1761 and recorded in the General Court. Recorded, Bedford, May 23, 1763.

 

        (I have found that WGL was mistaken about this. The John F who m. E. Harrison was born in 1729/30 and not the brother of Robert.)

         As Bedford County was cut from Lunenberg County in 1754, it is possible that Robert Sr. was previously a resident of Lunenberg County. His marriage license record to Margaret _________has not yet been found. However, the marriage license of John Fitzhugh, an unrecorded son of Major John, was found in Lunenberg records. On Jan. 31, 1760, he was married to Elizabeth Harrison. So it is possible that some members of this branch of the family were identified with this county before it was divided.

        (From WGL's manuscript _Fitzhugh, Dawson, and Logsdon Family Lineages: Fitzhugh Narrative) WGL reported that "a recent search on Robert Jr.'s burial lot has unearthed two stones with the initials R and M on them, which undoubtedly indicates Robert Sr., and his wife, Margaret." This must have been in the 1940s or 1950s.

 

 

4.5.2.3 - Elizabeth Fitzhugh - was born about 1745, daughter of William Fitzhugh and Ursula Beverley. Elizabeth married   ?, who was born    and died   . Elizabeth died UNKNOWN.

 


4.5.2.4 William Beverley Fitzhugh - was born 27 Mar 1756 in St. Paul’s Parrish, Stafford County, Marmion, Stafford County, Virginia, son of William Fitzhugh and Ursula Beverley.

 

On his father’s Tax List he was listed as “Beverley”

 

William Beverley Fitzhugh received as a gift from his uncle Col. Robert Munford III [born about 1737 and died Dec 1783] {wrote Poems and Plays in Mecklenburg Co. VA], 400 acres in Mecklenburg County 30 November 1781. Robert Munford was the husband of Anne Beverley, daughter of William Beverley, the grandfather of William Beverley Fitzhugh. Robert Munford provided that should Fitzhugh died without issue, he would reconvey the land to his cousin William Munford. Yet Fitzhugh deeded the tract to minor William Munford 22 April 1784. William Munford was born 15 August 1775 in Mecklenburg Co. VA.

 

Beverly Fitzhugh is shown as a jurer in Mecklinburg County, Virginia in 1782 in Order Book 5, pg 193.

 

The “Virginia Will Records, 1982” provides a will fragment, from the Amelia County Court, Will Book 3, page 289 dated 16 July 1783 and probated on 28 October 1784, of Theoderick Bland that was witnessed by William Beverley Fitzhugh among others.

 

The Virginia Revolutionary War Warrant ID 3712.0 awarded him 100 acres of land for three years service as a soldier (private) in the Virginia Continental Line during the Revolutionary War. The Warrant is dated 20 January 1785.  A record I failed to record shows that he sold this to someone who was consolidating the land.  His father left him two Negroes in his will, dated 13 march 1789.

 

William Beverly had his service certified on 1/15/1784 by Lt Col ED Carrington in Richmond. Revolutionary service was March 1777 to April 17?? “1st Reg Artillery”. He served as a Matross. Matross was a soldier of artillery, who ranked next below a gunner. The duty of a matross was to assist the gunners in loading, firing and sponging the guns. They were provided with firelocks, and marched with the store-wagons, acting as guards. In the American army a matross ranked as a private of artillery.

Edward Carrington (February 11, 1748 – October 28, 1810) was an American soldier and statesman from Virginia. He was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Continental Army, serving as Quartermaster to General Nathanael Greene’s Southern campaign. He commanded artillery at the Battle of Hobkirk's Hill and the siege of Yorktown.Virginia sent Carrington as a delegate to the Continental Congress from 1786 to 1788. George Washington appointed Carrington as the first U.S. Marshal for Virginia, a position he held from 1789 to 1791. He later served as foreman of the jury when Aaron Burr was tried for treason in 1807. He was also mayor of Richmond for two terms in 1807-1808 and 1809-1810.

 

Look at : From a web site: CLARION COUNTY in Northwest PENNSYLVANIA at one time had 31 iron furnaces, the most of any county in Western Pennsylvania. Elk (aka Soapfat, Smearcase) - is located about 3/4 mile above the site of Deer Creek Furnace along Little Deer Creek in Elk Township. It was built in 1842 by William B. Fitzhugh(jac). In 1850 it was owned by W. B. Fetzer(s&t/ajd). It was a small furnace, 22' high with a 7-1/2' bosh, powered by water. It produced 700 tons in 1845, 1000 tons in 1847, but only 400 tons in 1854, being abandoned in the fall of 1855 when timber was exhausted(unk). This furnace is in poor condition, a pile of stones and rubble, buried in heavy underbrush (P)(V)(rp,km-2004).{not likely, he would be too old.}

Richard C. was his son and if he would not administer his father’s estate it appears certain his father was so poor or so much in debt he wanted no obligations connected with it. The sheriff returned no accounting at any later date and it appears fairly obvious that there was nothing to distribute to the heirs. Harrison’s children by Ann Carr Lane did inherit something through their mother. There was a suit of A. Fitzhugh’s heirs vs. M.H.

Hannah died 16 February 1831 in Cooper County, Missouri and both Hannah and George were buried at Farm, Cooper County, Missouri

 

4.5.8.2 - Peter Fitzhugh– was born 28 May 1760 in Bedford County, Virginia; son of Robert Fitzhugh and Margaret Bell. On page 24 of _Marriage Bonds of Bedford County, Virginia for 1755-1800 shows Peter married Nancy Dawson on, June 27, 1785. Robert Fitzhugh paid surety and consent of John Dawson, father of Nancy was indicated. Her mother was Sussanah Wood. Nancy was born about 1762 in Bedford County, Virginia and died after 1831 in Independence, Missouri. Peter died 8 February 1828 in Logan County, Kentucky.

Peter was a participant in the Battle of Guilford Courthouse on 15 Mar 1781 in Guilford, NC. He received a land grant of 78 3/4 acres, which was surveyed 15 Aug 1799. The watercourse was listed as Little Whippoorwill and Big Spring Creek in Logan, Kentucky. He appeared on the census of 1810 in Logan, Kentucky. His headstone is inscribed "In memory of Peter Fitzhugh, who was born May 8th 1760, dec'd February 8th 1828". The plot next to him has no stone. He is buried at Red River Meeting House Cemetery located 1 mile west of Schochoh, Kentucky. His will was probated 3 Mar 1828 in Logan County, Kentucky, with his estate left to wife, Nancy Fitzhugh, and children: George, John, Mary Marty, Gabriel, Sollaman (sic). Executor: Gabriel Fitzhugh. Not all Peter's children were mentioned in his will. The 1787 Census: Bedford County Person Property Tax List A: Lists Peter.

Peter was afterwards engaged in general farming until his death. He served as a soldier in the war of 1812, enlisting with two of his brothers, both of whom were killed on the field of battle. (_Portrait and Biographical Record of Western Oregon_1904 p. 364 in a section about his grandson, Joseph S. Fitzhugh, son of Robert Fitzhugh of IL). It is significant that Peter began selling his land in Bedford County in 1797. Perhaps the fact that people were migrating westward to what is now Kentucky, but which before 1792 was considered a part of Virginia, prompted the Fitzhughs to plan on moving to a new frontier. In January 1797, Peter and his wife, Nancy, sold to Bartlett Gaskins for 25 Pounds, 100 acres of Stony Fork of Otter River in Bedford Co being part of a survey of 248 acres granted to Peter by patent Aug. 20, 1794. On August 28, 1797 Peter deeded to John Boise for 40 pounds a tract of 140 acres in Bedford County near the Peaks of Otter adjoining Bartlett Gaskins. Then on Sept. 26, 1797 Robert Fitzhugh, Sr., and wife, Margaret, Peter Fitzhugh and wife, Nancy, Robert Fitzhugh, Jr. and wife, Anne, sold to John Boles for 60 pounds all these tracts of land at present in the possession of the said Fitzhughs, lying in Bedford County on the branches of Stony Creek and bounded by the lands of Robert Boles, Robert Rosebrook, Abraham Carnes, and the Heirs of Thomas Wood, deceased, containing about 155 acres. Peter's will is as follows: To wife, Nancy, ample support out of estate during her life. To son George improvements he made and one half of my claim in land containing 78 acres. To son John the remaining half of said claim including his improvements. To daughter Mary (Polly) Moultry 40 acres to pass through my farm parallel with the row of trees and on the upper end of my farm. To Gabriel and Solomon balance of land, including house where I live, containing about 80 acres. To wife Nancy all my personal goods.

Airy, Prince George, MD and died 19 Oct 1852, at Arlington Plantation, Alexandria, Fairfax, Virginia.  They lived in Arlington, Virginia. Her only daughter married General Robert E. Lee in 1806.  Thus it is plain how it is that the ex-Virginia Governor Lee and the late Congressman Lee of the eighth district were both named Fitzhugh Lee and also how the Lees and Fitzhughs are blood kin.  The line seems too direct and obvious to admit of diversity of opinion among modern genealogists. Mary died 23 April 1853 on the Arlington Plantation, Alexandria, Fairfax, Virginia

Sallie Ashton's mother, Ann Ashton, was a niece of General Washington. Thus, through the wife's inheritance,  Henry Fitzhugh came into possession of the land on a part of which Ravenswood now stands. He moved to Charleston, Kanawha County in 1834, and engaged in the making of salt.  Henry was the founder of Ravenswood. The town of Ravenswood was laid out in 1840. (This date is given by Nicholas, son of Henry Fitzhugh, the founder.) The first merchant was Joseph Holdren, in 1837, the second, Fleming and Stanley, and the third Henry Fitzhugh. The first sawmill was built by Henry Fitzhugh, in 1837, a set of buhrs for grinding being added in 1838.  There are two conflicting accounts as to the origin of the name Ravenswood. One is that Mrs. Payne named the village Ravensworth, in honor of relatives of that name in England, but somehow it was changed to Ravenswood, through a mistake in engraving a map of the state. The other that Mrs. Fitzhugh was an ardent admirer of the works of fiction being written by Sir Walter Scott, and gave the place its name from that of the hero in the "Bride of Lammermoor".)   Henry Fitzhugh moved to the land near the mouth of Big Sandy about 1840, and lived in the vicinity until his death, in 1855. He was, during his life, one of Jackson County's leading citizens.

RAVENSWOOD

The town of Ravenswood is situated upon the left bank of the Ohio river, thirty-five miles below -Parkersburg, fifty-one above Point Pleasant, and fifty-eight on an air line from Charleston. The land upon which the town stands originally belonged to George Washington, having been surveyed by him and his assistant, Col. William Crawford (who was burned at the stake by the Delaware Indians in the year 1781), in the summer of 1772, and patented by him the following year. There were 1450 acres of this tract. It was inherited by six of his grandnieces, of whom Henrietta S., wife of Henry Fitzhugh, and Lucy Fitzhugh, afterward wife of the late Arthur M. Payne, were two, and they came into possession of the land upon which the town is now located.

In 1810, Lawrence Lane and William Baily, having explicit confidence in the doctrine of "squatter sovereignty," settled upon the land and cleared about forty acres. Rudolph Roberts, of Alexandria, Virginia, the agent for the Washington heirs, in 1812 had the lands surveyed and divided among them. The improved lands, from which the squatters had been ejected, were then rented to various parties, one of whom was Bartholomew Fleming, until 1836, when Mrs. Henrietta S. Harning married Henry Fitzhugh, and Mrs. Lucy having been united in marriage with Arthur Payne, removed to these lands and laid out the town. The name which it now bears is the result of an error. Mrs. Payne named it Ravensworth, in honor of relatives of that name in England, but the engravers of the first map of Virginia, upon which it appeared, spelled it Ravenswood, instead of Ravensworth, and the mistake was never corrected.

Joseph Holdren, George Warth, Bartholomew Fleming, Thomas Coleman John Thorn, Thomas Slagel, and David Stanley purchased the first lots and were the first settlers. Joseph Holdren was the first merchant, having commenced business in 1837. The second were Bartholomew Fleming and David Stanley, doing business under the firm name of Fleming & Stanley. The third was Henry Fitzhugh.

The first school was taught by a young man of the name of Smith, in 1837. The first sermon was preached about the same time by the Rev. J. C. Brown, a Presbyterian minister, at the house of Bartholomew Fleming in the year 1834. The first hotel was opened by Thomas Slagel about the year 1839. Dr. James Henry was the first resident physician and John Clark the first blacksmith. The first church was erected in 1837; it was an Episcopal Church, and the expense of building was almost entirely defrayed by Henry Fitzhugh. Bartholomew Fleming kept a wood-yard for many years from which, he informed the writer, he had sold 14,000 cords of wood to the early steamers on the Ohio. He also kept a ferry as early as 1831, but it was not established by act of the legislature until 1841.

Walter Holmes and B. Fleming brought the first wharf boat to this place in 1844, having purchased it at Bull creek, above Marietta. The first voting place was at the residence of Mr. Fleming, and here for the first time the voters cast their votes for the candidate of their choice at the close of the famous hard cider campaign of 1840. The postoffice was established in 1846 with Thomas Atkinson as postmaster.

RAVENSWOOD DISTRICT

This is the central or middle district of the county, which lies on the Ohio river, and takes its name from the town of Ravenswood, which is situated within it. It is bounded north by Grant district, east by Wirt and Roane counties, south by Washington and Ripley districts, and west by Union district and the Ohio river. Within it are some of the best farming lands in the State; the soil on the river bottoms is sandy, while that of the hills is for the most part red clay.

The first cabin erected within the present limits of the district was built by John Nessleroad, about the Year 1808, at the mouth of Sandy creek; but with him came Robert Carry, Lawrence Lane (who built the first cabin where Ravenswood now stands), William Bailey, George Swope, Noah Robinson, Franklin Wise, George Swope, Daniel Beaty, William Anderson, who settled about two miles below where Ravenswood now stands; Eli Gandy, who settled on Sandy creek, about three miles from the Ohio river; James Daugherty, who settled on the Ravenswood bottoms, and James Stanley, who located a short distance below the mouth of Big Sandy. Bartholomew Fleming, who still survives, came in 1820, coming with Grandfather Lane, who was then quite old. Tapley Beckwith came in 1830 and about the same time came Ezekiel McFarland, Elijah Runner, Daniel W. Sayre, Daniel Darby, John Woodruff, George Parsons, Thomas Bramble, George Stump, Isaac Richards, Armstead Morehead and Thomas Morehead.

The first grist-mill was built in 1838 by Henry Fitzhugh. It was an addition to a saw-mill which he had erected the year previously.

The first school was taught by a man of the name of Daniel Beaty, in the year 1820, in a log cabin on Big Sandy creek, which had been erected for school purposes in the year 1818. It had holes cut through the walls, which resembled portholes in a fortification, for windows. One end was almost entirely taken up by a huge fire-place, in which logs from eight to ten feet long might be rolled in and burned. There are at the present time twenty- five school buildings in the district.

The first post office (now Ravenswood) was called Sandville. Warren Reed, afterward known as "Esquire" Reed, was the first postmaster. There are now four offices in the district, viz.: Ravenswood, Silverton, Sandyville and Leroy.

The M. E. Church was the first denomination that sent a minister into this locality, but of the work at that early period nothing can be learned, for the reason that the records are lost. It is, however, known that as early as 1828 they had an appointment at the residence of Bartholomew Fleming, and that there had been a society consisting of several members formed, and which from that date has never ceased to exist.

The second church organized was the Baptist (an account of which is in notice of Ravenswood).

The Presbyterians were the third denomination that formed a Church in the district. The Rev. Francis Dutton was here as early as the year 1836. He was followed by a Mr. Paxton, but no organization was perfected until the year 1847, when a small congregation was gathered, composed of the following named persons: John Koontz, Mary Koontz, the Alexander family, Mary Blackmore, James R. Koontz, C. M. Rice and wife, Fleming Wardner, Marietta Wardner, and Mrs. James King. The first regularly installed minister was the Rev, William C. Nealy, and his successors have been the Revs. James A. Ewing, A. J. McMillin and Henry G. Blaney, the present incumbent.

The Episcopal Church was the first denomination that erected a house of worship in the town of Ravenswood. Their building is a neat frame structure, twenty by forty feet, with a vestry- room sixteen by twenty feet, in the rear. It was erected about the year 1844. In 1851 the communicants were Henry Fitzhugh, Henrietta Fitzhugh, Henrietta T. Barr, Mazilla Armstrong, Ellen S. Ford, Thomas Kirk, Isabel Parks and James Thompkins.

Portrait of Dr. Alexander Fitzhugh (1786-1847), artist unknown, Virginia, 1815-1825.  Oil on canvas. Height 29 1/8², width 24².

 

Commentary: The son of Thomas Fitzhugh and Anne Rose, Alexander Fitzhugh was born at ³Boscobel² in Stafford County, Virginia. He received his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1810, having written his essay on ³Thyphus State of Fever.² He appears in Dr. Benjamin Rush¹s ³Class Lists² for the years 1808-1809 and 1809-1810.1 During the War of 1812, Fitzhugh served as a surgeon in the 45th regiment of the Virginia Militia.2. In 1815 he married Eliza Gibbs Clare of Clarke County, Virginia. From 1838 to 1840, he was a member of the Virginia House of Delegates from Stafford County.3

 

Dr. Fitzhugh is depicted holding a leather-bound book identified on the spine as Rush¹s Inquiries. Written by his mentor at the University of Pennsylvania, the book was fully entitled Medical Inquiries and Observations Upon Diseases of the Mind. The first edition was published in 1812.

 

Portraits of other members of the Fitzhugh family can be found in the collections of the Virginia Historical Society and the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.

 

Condition: The painting survives with an old relined canvas that appears to have been moved recently to a new stretcher. There is scattered in painting along the edges, around the eyes, on the temple, and in the background above the sitter¹s head. There is a 2 1/2² area along the lower edge of the canvas that has pulled up from the lining and has some losses.

 

IDENTIFYING MARKS:

 

The stretcher has two twentieth-century paper labels that identify the sitter as Dr. Alexander Fitzhugh. One of the labels refers to the companion portrait of his wife, Eliza Clare, but the location of the latter is now unknown.

 

PROVENANCE:

 

According to the previous owner, the portrait was acquired during the late 1980s or early 1990s at L[eslie]. H[indman]. Auctioneers in Chicago. At the time, according to one of the paper labels on the stretcher, it was still accompanied by the companion portrait of Fitzhugh¹s wife.

From the Fredericksburg Free-Lance Star dated 9 September 2007 newspaper:

 

“In 1942, the government needed to expand Quantico Marine Corps Base to beef up combat training during World War II.

It claimed 50,000 acres in Stafford, Fauquier and Prince William counties and gave 250 families less than a month to move.

Families often had private cemeteries in their backyards. People had so much to pack up that some had to leave behind the remains of their ancestors.

Over the years, volunteers have identified 33 cemeteries on the base that are maintained by the Marine Corps. There are at least 10 smaller ones and several that have never been found, said volunteer Richard Knight.

The base is not open for people to explore, but volunteers such as Knight can help search for family grave sites. For information, contact him at 540/657-8193.

The pale purple wildflower periwinkle often is a key clue to old grave sites. People planted the prolific plant to keep weeds down, according to Stafford County residents who look for old cemeteries.

Graves often were dug under big trees, especially cedars, and sometimes were marked with large fieldstones. Cemeteries were on east-facing slopes so the resurrected would arise and face Christ when he returned.”

MoreNotes:

1. Capt. Charles Minn Thruston fought in the Revolution, at the age of 11, as aide to his father, the Rev. and Col. Thruston, at the Battle  of Piscataway. In 1793 he married Gen. George Rogers Clark's sister, Fanny Clark, after the  death of her husband, Dr. James O'Fallon. Their home was at Westport. Capt. Thruston was killed in December, 1800, by Luke, his body servant, who feared that his master would punish him for repeated misdemeanors. Capt. Thruston refused to take Luke on a trip back to Virginia, and warned him that any misconduct during his absence would mean a thrashing. The slave had not attended to his duties during his master's absence, and before the return of Capt. Thruston, ran away. However, one night early in December, a servant reported to Capt. Thruston that Luke had been in the kitchen and had stolen a leg of lamb. Capt. Thruston and his small son went out to look for Luke, tracking him by footprints in the snow. When discovered hiding in a corn shock, Luke sprang on his master and stabbed him with a carving knife which he had stolen from the kitchen. Luke was caught and was hung by verdict of the jury. Capt. Thruston's widow married her cousin, Judge Dennis Fitzhugh, and her home stood in the square between Green and Jefferson, Brook and Floyd.

5.5.2.2.1 - Peter Fitzhugh - was born 8 May 1760 in Bedford County Virginia. Peter married Nancy Dawson on 27 June 1785 in Bedford County Virginia, who was born about 1762 in Bedford County, Virginia   and died after 1831 in Independence, Missouri. She was the daughter of John Dawson and Susan Wood (daughter of John Wood). Peter is in the 1787 Census for Bedford County Person Property Tax List A.. Peter (son of Robert Fitzhugh) was a participant in the Battle of Guilford Courthouse on 15 Mar 1781 in Guilford, North Carolina. He received a land grant of 78 3/4 acres, which was surveyed 15 Aug 1799. It is significant that Peter began selling his land in Bedford County in 1797. Perhaps the fact that people were migrating westward to what is now Kentucky, but which before 1792 was considered a part of Virginia, prompted the Fitzhughs to plan on moving to a new frontier. In January 1797, Peter and his wife, Nancy, sold to Bartlett Gaskins for 25 Pounds, 100 acres of Stony Fork of Otter River in Bedford County being part of a survey of 248 acres granted to Peter by patent Aug. 20, 1794. On August 28, 1797 Peter deeded to John Boise for 40 pounds a tract of 140 acres in Bedford County near the Peaks of Otter adjoining Bartlett Gaskins. The watercourse was listed as Little Whippoorwill and Big Spring Creek in Logan, Kentucky.

He appeared on the census of 1810 in Logan, Kentucky. He was engaged in general farming until his death. He served as a soldier in the war of 1812, enlisting with two of his brothers [unknown], both of whom were killed on the field of battle. His headstone is inscribed "In memory of Peter Fitzhugh, who was born May 8th 1760, dec'd February 8th 1828". The plot next to him has no stone. Buried at Red River Meeting House Cemetery located 1 mile west of Schochoh, Kentucky. His will was probated 3 Mar 1828 in Logan County, Kentucky, with his estate left to wife, Nancy Fitzhugh, and children: George, John, Mary Marty, Gabriel, Sollaman (sic). Executor: Gabriel Fitzhugh. Not all Peter's children were mentioned in his will.)

Peter's will is as follows: To wife, Nancy, ample support out of estate during her life. To son George improvements he made and one half of my claim in land containing 78 acres. To son John the remaining half of said claim including his improvements. To daughter Mary (Polly) Moultry 40 acres to pass through my farm parallel with the row of trees and on the upper end of my farm. To Gabriel and Solomon balance of land, including house where I live, containing about 80 acres. To wife Nancy all my personal goods.

Peter died 8 February 1828 in Logan County, Kentucky

5.5.2.2.5 - Polly Fitzhugh, - was born 1779.  Polly's tombstone states that she was born in 1779. She is buried in Terry Cemetery, Logan County, Kentucky. Polly died in 1819.

 


5.5.2.4.1 - William W. Fitzhugh - was born  ? ? ~1786, my assumed son of William Beverley Fitzhugh. William married   ?, who was born  ??  and died  ?? . William married secondly Mrs. Jane Halley in the District of Columbia, Alexandria County on the evening of 9 November 1815 by Reverend Mr. William H. Wilmer, as announced in the 10 November issue of the Alexandria Gazette. The newspaper said they were both from Alexandria.  It appears that Jane was a widow when she married William W. Fitzhugh. Jane was born sometime prior to 1796   and died   .  Rev Wilmer later married Ann Brice Fitzhugh.

 

William W. Fitzhugh was listed as a head of household in the 1820 Federal Census Index for Middleburg, Loudon County, Virginia with three white males under ten (possibly Thornton B., William C., and Harrison G.), one white male aged 26 to 44(probably William W. Fitzhugh), one white female aged 10 – 15 (possibly a sister) and one white female aged 26-44 (probably his wife, Jane Halley) and he was engaged in manufactures.  His signature happens to match the same signature on William W. Fitzhugh’s and Jane Halley’s Marriage records.

3 males under 10 years old (Probably Thornton B., William C. and Harrison G. Fitzhugh)

1 males between 26 and 44 years old ( This is probably William W. Fitzhugh, engaged I manufacturing)

1 female between 30 and under 40 years old (This is probably Jane Halley his wife)

1 female between 10 and under 15 years old ( a possible unknown sister)

4 free whites under 16

2 white persons over 25

Total 6 free whites

 

 

He was listed on the 1821 Loudon County personal property tax books and was taxed for one horse and living in the same district with Jane Halley. In 1822 neither are listed in 1822, but a Sam Halley begins to appear. It may be that William and Jane settled for a few years on the land she would have held as a dower in the estate of her first husband. The records for deeds need reviewed for Loudon County under the name Hawley and Halley looking for possible heirs.

 

A William W. Fitzhugh was listed in the 1830 Federal Census for the Western District, Frederick County, Virginia. Again the signature seems to match the previous 1820 and their marriage records. He was recorded with:

 

3 males between 5 and under 10 years old (Probably one of them was Harrison G. Fitzhugh plus two brothers)

2 males between 10 and under 15 years old (Probably Thornton B. and William C. Fitzhugh)

1 males between 40 and under 50 years old (This is probably William W. Fitzhugh)

1 female between 0 and under 5 years old (Probably another sister)

1 female between 5 and under 10 years old (Probably another sister)

1 female between 15 and under 20 years old (Probably another sister)

1 female between 20 and under 30 years old (Probably another sister from the 1820 Census)

1 female between 30 and under 40 years old (This is probably Jane Halley his wife)

Total 11 free whites

A notice in the National Intelligencer of 7 and 8 July 1831 said “William W. Fitzhugh, formerly of Alexandria, Virginia died in Frederick, Virginia on 26 June 1831 at the age of 45 years old.” This would have had him born about 1786.

 

A Jane Fitzhugh aged 60, was living with George and Ann Brown according to the 1850 Fauquier County, Virginia U.S. Census. Probably not Jane Halley.

 

A Jane Fitzhugh was listed as a head of household in the 1850 Fauquier County, Virginia U.S. Census. Probably not Jane Halley.

 

The following is a portion of an advertisement published in the Clarksburg Intelligencer September 23, 1826.


"Fifty Dollars Reward."


Runaway from the subscriber on the night of July 24, my man named Fill. He is about twenty eight years of age, supposed about five feet eleven inches high, well made, walks straight but has a down look when spoken to and quite a smooth face. Very little to say generally. I purchased him of a Mr. Baxter about ten years ago, who was authorized to sell him by his master Mr. Fitzhugh near Fredericksburg, but I don't believe he will make in that direction.

The above reward will be given if taken out of the State, twenty five dollars if a shorter distance and over twenty miles, and ten if about home, but in either case he is to be lodged in jail and information given so that I get him.

George. Cunningham, Moorefield, Va."

A William Fitzhugh, Jr. was listed in the 29 May 1829 issue of the National Intelligencer as “dying on 21 May 1829 in Hagerstown, Maryland. He had a wife and three sons and was 43 years old” in accordance with the newspaper announcement. This would have had him born about 1786. He is also listed as dying 14 May 1829 and buried in Saint Johns Episcopal Churchyard in Hagerstown, Maryland at age 45 years 8 months and 16 days.

Our History

St. Paul's Episcopal Church began in 1809 in a small building on South Fairfax Street between Prince and Duke Streets. In 1817, one of the country's most famous architects, Benjamin Latrobe, was chosen to design the present church. He was born in England and came to this country in 1796. Appointed by President Jefferson in 1803 as surveyor of public buildings in Washington, D.C., Latrobe completed the U.S. Capitol begun, which was begun by William Thornton, and designed Statuary Hall. In 1807, he completed the White House, designed both porticos, and later restored the building after the War of 1812. An outstanding example of American architecture inspired by the Gothic churches in Europe, St. Paul's is said to have been modeled after St. James Church, Piccadilly, London.

In 1823, after the fledgling seminary at Williamsburg had failed, the Rev. Reuel Keith and Dr. William Wilmer, determined to keep the idea of a seminary alive, met at St. Paul's with a class of 14 young men, forming the nucleus of Virginia Theological Seminary, which flourishes today.

6.2.3.4.7.1 – John William Fitzhugh – born 1810 in Kentucky, the son of Cole Fitzhugh and Catherine Presley Thornton. He married 6 January 1835 in Oldam County, Kentucky to Anne E. Thornton and then married secondly on 1 February 1844 in Henry County, Missouri to Laura Benson.

 

Obituary from the San Joaquin Valley Argus dated February 23, 1878. Mrs. Laura Fitzhugh passed away, aged 51 years, at Snelling, June 7th, 1877, the widow of the late Dr. J. W. Fitzhugh. The cherished subject of this sketch was born in Boone County, Missouri. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Benson, were Virginians, and were very nearly related to the Abbots, so well and favorably known as one of Virginia's most noble families. And who that has ever met Mrs. Dr. Fitzhugh can doubt but that she came from the most noble and gentle blood of America? Being possessed of a large share of childish beauty and sweet manners, her wealthy and influential parents (the writer is indebted to an old slave of the family for this information) anticipated for their lovely child and brilliant future; but, alas!  For the frailty of human hopes; for just a little Laura was budding into sweet childhood, that found and loving mother was taken by the death angel to live  again in a brighter and fairer land. And Mr. Benson found it necessary to place his daughter in a boarding school, where she remained until she was sixteen years of age. At that time she met Dr. Fitzhugh, then a handsome, talented physician.  They were married and soon retired from the gay society of town to live upon a farm in Henry County, Mo. The farm was a wedding gift to the Doctor, from Mr. Benson, the father of this child - bride. The Doctor was of very domesticated turn of mind, while the young Laura had not awakened for her maiden dreams of beauty, refinement, elegance and ease – dreams with which all gifted with a love for the beautiful, grand and sublime, people their brains these were part of the being of this graceful, gentle, loving woman.  Her idea of home was in strict accordance with a quotation which we remember from "Thompson's Season:"

 

"Home is the resort Of love, of joy, of peace, and plenty where, Supporting and supported, polished friends And  dear relations mingle into bliss."

 

But it would seem as though it had been pre ordained that this rare and gifted woman should never fill the position for which nature had so richly and bounteously fitted her. For just as she merged into the sweet state of finished womanhood, the Doctor concluded to try his fortune in this, then new and uncultivated country. In 1852, with a good and  faithful old family slave, who is still living, and other servants, and with  energy, comfort and many luxuries, this delicate lady, who had never known aught  but a life of ease and refinement, came like a true and faithful wife to share her husband's fortunes; and, after arriving although almost constantly surrounded by the coarse, rough, and vulgar, she not only retained all the refinement that nature and education had given her, but by her elegance and  gracefulness of manner she assisted in cultivation those with whom she  associated. Her sweet, gentle voice, her kind, charitable heart, ever ready to  rejoice with those who had occasion to rejoice, and whose gentle, loving eye  could shed the tear of pity and sympathy over the griefs and sorrows of those  around her. She loved everything that was beautiful both in nature and in art.  No little wild-flower within ocular distance ever missed her admiration. Oh! How the heart swells, and aches, and throbs when the truth flashes o'er us that we shall never meet this well-beloved and dearly-cherished friend on earth again.  Then, if we who are not cognate, feel so deeply and so thrillingly this loss,  how deep, how full of woe, how bitter the anguish of those dear ones allied by  the tenderest of all earthly ties – the children, those whom she loved almost to idolatry. Oh, how sad to see no more the loving black eyes so full of fond  affection; to hear no more the sweetest voice that ever fell upon their ears; to feel no more that little, soft, white hand that was wont to lay so lovingly upon their fevered and aching heads, or twining so tenderly among their shining hair those little fingers, in token of mother's love and mother's sympathy; to listen no more to the sweet, silvery laugh that often called them in groups to her side to witness some novel scene or join her in her admiration of some rare flower.  Oh! Yes, but, do not let her gentle, silent passing away fill your young hearts with bitterness, anguish or despair. Your lovely angel mother, your sweet, low voiced mamma has only passed under the dark, mysterious drapery which hides the lovely bowers where bright, glad angels had long awaited to welcome the delicate, fragile blossom. Yes, my darlings, your mother dwells in the gem-bedecked home of the spirit world, withy all of her earth soul longings gratified. She needed no refining fire to fit her for that glorious home. Then, weep not, sorrow not, but with an eye of faith, and a heart of trust, look up and over and say "Mother, darling mother, we will smile and be glad. We will be true and faithful, that your may have no care to mar your new found joy in the gloden glory of the bright beyond. Sing and rejoice with the saints.  Twine garlands that will not fade or perish, with which to crown our brows when we meet and greet you in your home in paradise."

 

To give some idea of how well beloved by her husband was this good, true and faithful wife, we will relate a little incident. One evening, seated with this dear friend beside her cheerful hearth fire, her son Cole came in and handed her a litter. Looking at the superscription, she said, while a sweet smile played upon the animated face, "Oh! It's from the Doctor."  We watched the glowing tender expression of her countenance, until we saw the silent tears glistening in her eyes. She then looked up and, smiling through the crystal drops, said, "Just listen!"   And again the tear dimmed orbs sought the page, and she read aloud: "My dear, I feel that a fortune is within my grasp. Be patient a few short months and your brightest hopes and aspirations will, I trust, be gratified. I have given my claim a name which I for years have loved above all other names. I call it the Laura."

One evening in early spring, while riding over the plains with this nature loving woman, looking for wild flowers and mosses to be sent to Miss Rose, who was then attending the Mills' Seminary at Oakland, we said, "Mrs. Fitzhugh, have you any favorite among your children?" After a moment's pause she answered, "No. Mrs. Steele, I love them all:" and with that sweet pathos so natural to her, she continued: "Rose is a sweet, loving child of nature. She always reminds me of a moss rosebud swinging to and fro to bird music. May is quiet, like her pa, but none the less loving. Hale being my first born claims a large share of my mother love. Cole is so affectionate and loves me so dearly I could not take from him one grain to give to the rest. And little Gordon, you know, is our baby, and I feel that he is known, to our baby, and I feel that he is very, very dear to me."

Being naturally of a delicate temperament, she was not fitted for the coarse and hard labors of life, but still her love of order made her industrious and extremely neat. Her home was a picture of floral beauty and domestic happiness. In all the long years of social intercourse with this family, we never heard a harsh or unkind word spoken either by mother or children.  This whole family have ever been noted for their politeness and suavity of manner, Being, as we have remarked, of a delicate and fragile constitution, she was ill prepared to receive the news of the sudden death of her loving and devoted husband. From that day her face became more and more attenuated, her hands more transparent, her large dark eyes more spiritual, and her sweet voice more tender. Every day life seemed to grow less desirable, until weary of its cares she laid down, and like her dear companion, without a murmur  or groan, she passed away, and while the casket which had contained the spirit was lying in its marble like liveliness, the soul winged its way to the bright realms of spirit worked, and was caught in the loving arms of him who had gone before her, while the angels sang glad songs and waved sweet chaplets in honor of the happy reunion, and the heavenly arches rang with the sweet chorus, "There's room enough in paradise for all a home in glory."

 

John William Fitzhugh died in 1879 in Snelling, Merced, California.

He was reared and received his education in Virginia.  He has a brother and a sister who now own a part of the original estate of George Washington, at Ravensworth, now West Virginia.  Colonel Fitzhugh's father was a farmer.  He was an unassuming although a very worthy citizen.  He died on his estate at Ravensworth at an advanced age.  His mother died in the year 1882, at Charleston, West Virginia, at the age of ninety-two years. The subject of our sketch was reared on a farm and has followed farming during most of his lifetime. He married, in 1849, Miss Sarah Kemp, of Fauquier county, Virginia.  In June, 1861, at the beginning of the war, he enlisted in Company E, Twenty-sixth Virginia Infantry, and was appointed by General Wise, quartermaster, which  position he only held a short while, resigning and taking his former place in his regiment, where he served about eighteen months, when, as his health was so impaired that he was unlisted for active service, he was again appointed quartermaster, in which capacity he served until 1864, when, being of the proper age, he was granted an honorable discharge.  His duties were so faithfully discharged that General Sam. Jones said of him that he was the most competent quartermaster in the whole army. After leaving the army he was for about a year engaged in the mercantile business at Blacksburg, Virginia, in which he was very successful.  Had the currency been of current value, instead of Confederate States money, he would have been wealthy.  In the year 1870, in partnership with his brother, T. B. Fitzhugh, he purchased a large sugar plantation near St. Martinsville, but unfortunately lost it through a defective title.  Since that time he has resided in St. Martinsville, New Iberia, and, in 1887, he removed to Washington, where he has lived a retired life, his circumstances being such as to render an active business life unnecessary to one of his advanced age.  He is the father of one child, Kate, the wife of Mr. P. J. Russell. Mr. Fitzhugh and family are all members of the Episcopal church.

6.2.4.2.8.7 - Edmund Clare Fitzhugh - was born  ? ? 1820 in Falmouth, Stafford County, Virginia, son of Dr. Alex Fitzhugh and Elizabeth Gibbs Clare.

 

In 1846-1847 as a member of the Legislature of Virginia, he was present during the stormy session at which R.M. Hunter was elected Senator from Virginia. He practiced law in California before heading to the Northwest in the 1850’s.

 

He was a law partner of A.P. Crittenden and Edmund Randolph.

 

In the Northwest he became an Indian Agent, a county auditor, customs inspector and military aide to Governor Isaac Stevens. He was appointed by President Buchanan as United States Judge of the Washington Territory and served in that position for four years.

 

As the Bellingham Bay Coal Mines superintendant, he married first before 1854  to Julie E-yam-alth Sehome who was born about 1840 and died in April 1934.  She was the daughter of Samish Indian Chief  S’-yah-whom (Sehome). In the late 1850’s Edmund went to Seattle, taking his daughter Julia. E-yam-alth eventually married Henry Barkhousen, a county auditor, and raised a family on Fidalgo Island.

 

He participated as a colonel in the coordination of American troops during the Pig War of 1859, a dispute between Britain and the US over the title to the San Juan Islands. Edmund was described by Lottie Roeder Roth, a chronicler of northwest Washington history as the archetypal frontier hero “a born fighter, quick to take offense, absolutely without fear, something of a roisterer, imperious and self-willed, following his code of honor without thought of consequences, but withal a man of superior intellect and many kindly impulses. Generous, hospitable, impulsive, self-indulgent, honest and brave: Virginia never sent a more typical example of its chivalry into the Northwest than Fitzhugh.”

 

Secondly he married before 1860 to Xwelas (Mary Qui-Las) who was born before 1835 and died between 1915-1922. She was the aunt of his first wife E-yam-alth. Her father was Whe-ux Seya-Hom.  Xwelas was buried in an unmarked grave at the old Lummi cemetery. Their son Mason and his family are buried in a plot on Orcas Island a few miles from Madronna Point.  Records of these ancestors may be in the files of Gordon Charles. Gordon’s home is near the new Lummi cemetery. She has descendants buried also on San Juan Island and near Bellingham Bay. She also married William King Lear, an immigrant from Alabama and had his son. He left when one of his relatives died. She married George Phillips, a Welsh immigrant,  and later shot him in front of her son Mason.

 

When the war clouds appeared in the late 1850s, Fitzhugh made his Confederate allegiance clear and his support for the South grew. Like Captain George Pickett, he decided to take action. Fitzhugh had been a military aide to Isaac I. Stevens, the first territorial governor and in 1860, he left Sehome for Washington, D.C., to help Stevens run Vice President John C. Breckinridge's unsuccessful presidential campaign against Republican challenger Abraham Lincoln.

 

Edmund married 15 May 1861 thirdly to Cora Weems Bowie, who was born (possibly at Cedar Hill, the family estate) on 21 April 1830 in Prince Georges County, Maryland and died 1 November 1863 on Whidbey Island, Washington territory. She was the daughter Robert Bowie and Margaret French. She had no children.

 

In 1863, Fitzhugh enlisted in the Confederate Army and soon became an adjutant to now-general Pickett in time for Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg.

 

Edmund married fourthly in Virginia on 29 December 1864 to ‘Nannie’ Anne Fitzhugh Grayson, who was born   1829 in Loudon County, Virginia, by Walter W. Williams. She was the daughter of Richard Osbourne Grayson and Maria Margaret Fitzhugh (6.2.4.8.11) of Newstead, Loudon County, Virginia. He was living in an army camp and was a Major  in the Confederate army .  Nannie died 24 October 1905 in Portsmouth, Virginia.

 

 

After several years in California Edmund died in San Francisco, California in the What Cheer House on 24 November 1883. He left a wife and children in Iowa.

Children never went by the name Fitzhugh, used ‘Strode’.

 

A posting on RootsWeb, seeking information on the Strode family, brought a response from a lady in New York. Her son in law is a Strode, and she had found the Fredericksburg, VA Census from 1850 in the Library in New York City. These Census records had been confiscated by the North during the Civil War. The records showed that Jane Somerville Strode was born in Fredericksburg, VA. Her parents were John A. (possibly Aubrey) Strode and Jeanette Cooper. In 1850 Jane was 14 years old, and had three siblings. Jane was married in Richmond, VA, 1860, to Forrest Jay Mitchell.

The lady in New York put us in touch with a distant cousin, George B. Strode, in Atlanta, GA. He had further information on the Strode family. According to his notes, Jane Somerville Strode Mitchell was living in Salisbury, North Carolina during, or just after, the Civil War. (We have been looking for any information on Robert Evans Mitchell's actions during the Civil War, but have not yet found anything.) He had been looking for the Mitchells to connect the two families. According to his notes, after the death of John Strode, Jeanette became either the wife or common law wife of George Henry Bolling Fitzhugh. Jeanette's children were Henry Aubrey, Medora, and George. They were given the surname of Strode, possibly because of the unmarried status of their mother.

Henry A. Strode grew up to found the Kenmore School, Medora married a Mr. Weymouth and moved to Richmond, VA, and George was drowned at a young age in the Rappahannock River. Henry's son, Basil Strode, became a doctor in Richmond, Virginia.

6.2.5.3.1.1 - George Fitzhugh - was born  4 November 1806 in Brentown Tract, Port Royal, Prince William County, Virginia in the Northern Neck. He has remote family connections with the prominent abolitionist leaders Gerrit Smith and James G. Birney. He visited Gerrit Smith in 1855 in Petersboro, New York. In 1829 he was living in Port Royal, Caroline County, Virginia. George married in 1829 to Mary Metcalf Brockenbrough, who was born in 1805   and died  1877 in Huntsville, Texas. She was the daughter of Champe Brockenbrough and Sarah Skinker Bowie.

The old Fitzhughs were both literary and military people. George Fitzhugh, Esq., of Port Royal, Va. Was the distinguished author of “Sociology for the South” published in 1854 and “Cannibals All,” and a number of other works of merit in ante bellum days.  In 1856 the New York Times speaks of him thus:  “A genuine Virginian, conservative, talented, refined—one of the old school heroes of the South whose presence and counsel in this age of turmoil should be regarded as a benefaction.  Mr. Fitzhugh, probably more than any other writer in the South, has given to the world correct ideas of our institutions and our resources.”  At that time (1856) George Fitzhugh, residing in that ancient village on the Rappahannock, wrote a series of genealogical articles for De Bow’s Review from 1857 to 1867 in which he gave to the world some of the most interesting facts in the history of the ancient noblesse of the Old Dominion. He defended slavery as better than socialism to overcome evils of ‘laissey faire’.

After his wife’s death in 1877 he moved to Kentucky to live with a son, then to Texas and lived with an impoverished daughter. In 1880 and 1881 he was living in Huntsville, Texas.

During his lifetime he was known as a writer, lawyer and a sociologist.

George died 30 July 1881 nearly blind and aged 74, in Huntsville, Walker County, Texas

Charles C. Fitzhugh was born in Livingston County, N. Y., in 1821. In 1841 he came toSaginaw in connection with the land interests of his father. The following year he returned home and married Miss Jones, of Mount Morris. They came to Saginaw, where they remained three years, and then settled on a farm at the forks of the Tittabawassee River. He remained there until about 1855, when he came to Lower Saginaw to take care of the real estate interests of his father, and has resided here since that time.

From a Michigan history.

The History of Bay County, Michigan - Augustus H. Gansser (1905)

WILLIAM D. FITZHUGH
________

The late William D. Fitzhugh was identified so closely with the early interests of the Saginaw Valley, to which he came with his bride in 1849, that a history of the notable men of Bay County, men whose enterprise, energy judgement and capital contributed to its development, must include his name among the leading characters. Mr. Fitzhugh came of a family of substance and influential connections. He was born in Livingston County, New York, and was a son of Dr. Daniel Fitzhugh and Anne Frisby Dana, his wife.

William D. Fitzhugh was descended on his father’s side from William Fitzhugh, of Bedford, England, who was born in 1570. The latter’s son, Henry Fitzhugh, also of Bedford, was born in 1615. Col. William Fitzhugh, son of Henry and great-great-great-grandfather of the subject of this writing, was born in Bedford, England, in 1651, and was the first of the family to locate in this country, settling in Westmoreland County, Virginia. He was married to Sarah Tucker on May 1, 1674, and died in Virginia in 1701. His son, George Fitzhugh, of Stafford County, Virginia, married Mary Mason. Col. William Fitzhugh, of Stafford County, Virginia, the son of George and great-grandfather of our subject, was born January 11, 1721, and died February 11, 1798. He married Mrs. Anne Rousby, nee Frisby, of Cecil County, Maryland, January 7, 1752. She was born September 15, 1727, and died March 26, 1793.

Col. William Fitzhugh, the grandfather of our subject and son of the Col. William Fitzhugh just named, was born in Calvert County, Maryland, October 6, 1761, and died December 29, 1839. His wife, Ann Hughes, to whom he was married October 18, 1789, was born April 1, 1771, and died March 28, 1828. Col. William Fitzhugh, with his friends and neighbors, Nathaniel Rochester and Charles Carroll, visited Western New York in 1815; they purchased lands in Livingston County, including the site of the present city of Rochester, which was named in honor of one of the party. Colonel Fitzhugh settled his family in Livingston County in the following year.

Dr. Daniel Hughes Fitzhugh, the father of our subject, and son of Col. William Fitzhugh, of Livingston County, New York, was born April 20, 1794, in Washington County, Maryland, near Hagerstown. He studied medicine and secured his degree but never followed the profession, having become interested in land values at an early date and continuing to be thus interested until his death, which occurred April 23, 1881, at the age of 86 year.

On April 11, 1820, Dr. Daniel Hughes Fitzhugh was married to Anne Frisby Dana, who was born at Geneva, New York, December 22, 1803, and who died February 21, 1850. To Dr. Fitzhugh and wife were born 10 children, four of whom still survive. Mrs. Fitzhugh was a daughter of Capt. William Pultney Dana, who was born in Shrewsbury, England, July 13, 1776, and who was married in April 1802, to Anne Frisby Fitzhugh; the last named was born in Calvert County, Maryland, in 1782, and died in Geneva, New York, in January, 1804. Captain Dana died in Shrewsbury, England, June 29, 1861. He was a son of Rev. Edmund Dana, who was born at Cambridge, Massachusetts, November 18, 1739, graduated from Harvard in 1759, and was married about 1765 to Helen Kinnaird. Rev. Edmund Dana lived during great portion of his life in England, where he died May 7, 1823. He was a son of Richard Dana, who was born at Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1699, graduated from Harvard in 1718 and died in 1772. The wife of Richard Dana was Lydia Trowbridge, of Boston, Massachusetts. His father was Daniel Dana.

In the period just preceding the admission of Michigan to statehood, a great exodus from the East took place to a locality which was justly represented to be one of the finest farming districts of the Union, in addition to being rich in mineral wealth and transportation facilities. Among those who came to see this land of promise for themselves, were a little party of capitalists from Livingston County, New York, who made the trip in 1834. Satisfied as to the future of this county, then but a dense woodland wilderness, they in invested in large tracts of land, Dr. Fitzhugh and Judge Charles H. Carroll buying many acres in the rich Saginaw Valley. After the admission of Michigan to the Union, in 1837, and the establishment of a stable government, Dr. Fitzhugh purchased more land, becoming possessed of all that tract along the river which is now the site of West Bay City, and later became one of the proprietary owners of Lower Saginaw (now Bay City).

The late William D. Fitzhugh grew to manhood surrounded with every influence to develop his mental faculties and physical strength. He remained in Livingston County until his marriage in December, 1848, to Anne Carroll. This lady is a daughter of the late Hon. Charles H. and Alida (Van Rensselaer) Carroll. Mrs. Fitzhugh was born at Utica, New York, May 1, 1828. Judge Carroll came from a distinguished Maryland family, and was born at Bellevue and was educated at Georgetown. After his admission to the bar in 1820, he settled in Livingston County, New York, and there became prominent in law and politics. He was the first judge of Livingston County and served both as Representative and as Senator from that county in the State Legislature. He accompanied Dr. Fitzhugh in his prospecting trip to Saginaw Valley and invested largely in land here. He had participated in the War of 1812. For some years prior to his death, in 1865, he had given his whole attention to caring for his real estate investments.

William D. Fitzhugh and his bride came to Michigan in 1849 and were among the earliest settlers to found homes in this locality. Mr. Fitzhugh was led to select this section in order to look after his father’s and his father-in-law’s land interests, but he later became personally identified with the locality and the people and to such an extent that Bay City has always numbered him with her own representative men. In point of fact, Mr. Fitzhugh lived in Bay County but four years, but continued his identification with here interests as long as he lived and testified, during his numerous visit, to his devotion to her welfare and to his pleasure in commingling with her people.

Shortly after coming here, Mr. Fitzhugh, in company with a Mr. Alberta, made a complete survey of all that portion of Michigan, including Tuscola and other counties adjacent to Bay. He was quick to note public improvements needed and the great enterprise of draining Bay County was accomplished by following his example of extensive ditching. While Mr. Fitzhugh resided at Bay City, the great cholera epidemic swept the country and it is still recalled how he accompanied and assisted his friend, the noble Dr. August Nabert, in caring for the sick and in burying the dead. Mr. Fitzhugh survived his humanitarian labors, but his friend was a victim. During one season, in order to ensure the carrying of the mail from Saginaw to Bay City, Mr. Fitzhugh attended to this public duty himself. He was supervisor of his township and many of the early improvements were inaugurated by and through his personal efforts.

Mr. And Mrs. Fitzhugh’s first residence in Bay City was located on the corner of Third and Water streets, the seventh dwelling erected within the corporation limits. It was built by his brother, Daniel Fitzhugh, Jr., and was destroyed by fire in 1850. In the following year he built a new home on the corner of 10th street and Washington avenue, the present site of the City Hall, a spot then surrounded by a dense forest. After Mr. Fitzhugh decided to return to his native surroundings, his brother purchased this house and subsequently sold it to the city.

In those early day, Mr. And Mrs. Fitzhugh were not only the center of social life here, but were also leading factors in the organization of religious affairs and educational opportunities. They were the founders of Trinity Episcopal Church and Mrs. Fitzhugh was one of five communicants who attended the first service held in Saginaw, and still holds here membership with Trinity Church here. For some years she has resided in Bay City with her daughter, Mrs. Richard F. Conover, Mr. Fitzhugh having died in Livingston County, New York, in 1889. Of their eight children, six grew to maturity and three still survive, viz: Anne Dana, who is the wife of Judge Hamilton Mercer Wright, of Bay City; Cornelia, who is the wife of Richard Field Conover, a prominent business man of Bay City; and Edward F., who is a resident of Idaho.

Mrs. Fitzhugh’s recollections of a half-century ago are clear and her relation of them gives a vivid picture of times and conditions which it would take pages of this history to record. The time is not so long, measuring by years, but in the light of achievements, how remote it seems! When she and her husband came to this section, it was very close to the beginning of the history of Bay City. She has in her possession a number of legal papers with the signatures of Presidents Jackson and Van Buren, relative to the lands purchased by her father and the Fitzhughs.

In 1878, Mr. And Mrs. Fitzhugh deeded to the city a valuable tract of land to be used for a public park. This land was formerly owned by Judge Carroll, her father, and was presented to her by him. In turn she gave it to Bay City, under the name of Carroll Park, and this public improvement will continue for all time to recall not only her honored father, but a lady whose beautiful life and character have endeared her greatly to those in the midst of whom she has chosen to spend the evening of life.

1901 Estate of Wm. D. Fitzhugh. (Added Feb., 2009)

Michigan Reports – Cases Decided.
SUPREME COURT OF MICHIGAN
October 31, 1900, to February 27, 1901

CONOVER v. HEWITT.

TRUSTS—CONSTRUCTION-- VESTED ESTATES.

Where a trust deed declared that after the death of the cestui que trust, leaving a wife and child or children, the trustee should receive the profits, and apply the same to the use of the wife and children during the wife's life, and that at her death the estate should vest absolutely in such children, one of the children, on the death of the cestue que trust, took a vested interest in the estate, of which she could dispose by will.

Appeal from Bay; Shepard, J. Submitted October 2, 1900.

Decided October 31, 1900.

Bill by Richard F. Conovor, executor of the last will and testament of Aldia K. Fitzhugh, deceased, and Cornelia F. Conover, against John C. Hewitt, trustee, Anne E. Fitzhugh, and Edward F. Fitzhugh, to construe a trust deed and to terminate the trust. From a decree for complainants, defendant Wright appeals. Affirmed.

E. S. Clark, for complainants.

C. L. Collins, for appellant.

Hooker, J. Daniel H. Fitzhugh placed in the hands of a trustee certain real estate for the benefit of his son William D. Fitzhugh, by deeds all containing the following provisions, viz.:

“This conveyance is made to and accepted by the said Frank Fitzhugh in trust and for the use of his brother William Dana Fitzhugh, of Livingston county, State of New York, with the power on the part of said trustee to receive the rents, issues, profits, and income of said real estate, and apply the same during the natural life of the said William for his use, and at his death, leaving a wife and child or children surviving him, then to receive said rents, issues, profits, and income thereof, and apply the same to the use of said wife and child, or children, share and share alike, during the natural life of said wife, and at her death then the said real estate shall vest absolutely in said child or children; and in case of the death of said William leaving a child or children surviving him, and no wife, said real estate shall vest absolutely in said child or children at the death of said William. In case of the death of said William leaving a wife and no child or children or descendants, then said rents, issues, profits, and income shall be applied to the use of such wife during here natural life, and at her death the same shall vest absolutely in the brothers and sisters of said William then living, and the representatives or descendants, if any, of those who may have died. Said trustee shall also have power in his discretion at any time to sell, convey, and convert said real estate , or any part thereof, into money, and invest the same in good securities, and in such case the rents, issues, profits, and income of such fund shall be applied and the fund disposed of as hereinbefore provided in relation to the real estate embraced in this conveyance.

William D. Fitzhugh died in 1889, and left surviving a widow, Anne E. Fitzhugh, and the following son and daughters: Anne D. Wright, Cornelia G. Fitzhugh (now Cornelia F. Conover), Edward F. Fitzhugh, and Alida K. Fitzhugh. There were no issue of deceased children nor any descendants of William D. Fitzhugh living at his death, other than those above named. On February 20, 1898, one of these children (Alida K. Fitzhugh) died, leaving a will, in which complainant Richard F. Conover, who is the husband of the complainant Cornelia F. Conover, was named as executor, and in accordance with which appointment letters testamentary have been issued. Complainant Cornelia F. Conover was made the sole legatee and devisee, except as to certain life interests granted to her mother, Anne E. Fitzhugh.

The latter subsequently released and conveyed all these interests to Mrs. Conover, so that, when this bill was filed, Cornelia F. Conover was in the position of absolute and sole legatee and devisee of Alida K. Fitzhugh. Since the death of William D. Fitzhugh, the existence of the life estate of the widow, Anne E. Fitzhugh, has along prevented the winding up of the trust estate and the distribution of the property. It was agreed by all concerned that the trust estate should be concluded by the extinguishment of the life estate. In accordance with this agreement, Anne E. Fitzhugh, under date of November 22, 1889, executed a formal deed of release to the other beneficiaries, for the purpose of extinguishing her life interests with the same force and effect as if it had been extinguished by her death. This instrument has been given this effect by the court, and from this part of the decree of the bill was:

First. To obtain a formal winding up of the trust estate, and a distribution of the property among the beneficiaries.

Second. To establish the right of complainants, as representatives of Alida K. Fitzhugh, deceased, to succeed to that share of the trust estate which would have belonged to the deceased beneficiary if she had lived.

Complainant Cornelia F. Conover joins in the bill both as beneficiary in her own right and as the devisee of her deceased sister. The complainants, therefore, unite the interests of two of the children of W. D. Fitzhugh. The other two children, Anne D. Wright and Edward F. Fitzhugh, together with the widow and the trustee, were made defendants, and all entered their appearance in the cause. All those in any way interested in the trust property are before the court. Complainants claim the right to receive one-half of the estate, being the share of two of the four children. Defendant Anne D. Wright claims that the share of the deceased child was extinguished, and that the living children should therefore each have one-third of the estate. The finding of the court sustained all the allegations of the bill, and held that the complainants were entitled to receive one-half of the property as claimed, leaving the remaining one-half to be equally divided between the defendants Anne D. Wright and Edward F. Fitzhugh. The degree provides for an immediate winding up of the estate, and a distribution of the property in the proportions above named. Defendant Anne D. Wright alone appeals, and only from that part of the decree which fixes the shares of the parties.

The only question that we are called upon to decide is whether at the death of William D. Fitzhugh his children, who were then all living, had or took a vested interest in the property and its income, or whether the vesting of such interest was postponed until the extinguishment of the interest of the widow, Anne. Complainants maintain that, if it occurred upon or before the death of William D. Fitzhugh, Alida has an interest which she might transfer by will. Defendant does not seem to question this, but insists that the interest did not vest until the widow made a deed of her interest, which was after Alida's death.

Upon the death of William D. Fitzhugh, Alida, as one of four children, became entitled to the corresponding aliquot part of the income of the estate; and by his death it was also definitely determined that, after the inevitable extinguishment of Anne's estate, the property should vest in the children who at his death survived, and not alone such as might survive Anne, his widow. There was no element of uncertainty left, either in the property or the persons who should receive it when Anne should die. There was therefore no legal impediment to the vesting of an equitable interest in each of the children at once, if the grantor so intended; and the conclusion that he did so intend would be favored by the law, in the absence of evidence in the deed of a contrary intent. The only thing that may be said to indicate such contrary intent is that the deed contains provision in behalf of the brothers and sisters, and the descendants of deceased brothers and sisters, in a certain contingency, vis., William's death, “leaving no wife, chlid, children, or descendants” him surviving. It would seem that the design was to exclude the brothers, sisters, etc., not only in favor of W. D. Fitzhugh's children, but in favor, was well, of their children and descendants to the greatest possible degree of remoteness; and not only that, but in favor of the descendants of his child or children whom he might survive, and who, according to defendant's contention, were excluded by the terms of the deed. We are of the opinion that the provision that, upon the death of the widow, the estate “shall vest absolutely” in said child or children, does not show an intention to forbid the children from taking a vested interest earlier, but, at most, emphasizes the provision that the property should remain in tact in the hands of the trustee, for the widow's protection and benefit, and that upon her death, only, should the legal estate of the trustee terminate, and become an absolute and full legal estate in fee simply in the “said children” by operation of the deed itself, which thereby created a remainder in “said children” upon the termination of the life of Anne.

We might discuss the authorities bearing upon this question at length, but we do not discover any conflict in them upon the proposition that the law favors the vesting of estates when the contrary intention is not apparent; and, as we thing that the intention that it should vest is to be found in the deed, we omit further reference to this.

The degree of the learned circuit judge will be affirmed with costs.

The other Justices concurred.

Another of the lesser known officers of the 6th U.S. Cavalry was Captain John Savage of Company H. He is yet another cavalry officer native to Philadelphia, a city that spawned many prominent cavalry leaders during the Civil War. He remains a mystery in many ways. While many “wants” have been found, there are precious few “whys.” Thanks to Jim Jones for permitting me to edit this and post it here.

John Savage, III came from a very prominent Savage family line who settled in Philadelphia during the late 18th century. His great grandfather was Edward Savage, who became a famous painter and engraver. He painted the first panorama in Philadelphia, The Congress Voting Independence, and many other political and historical paintings. His grandfather, John Savage, was a shipowner and through his trades became a very wealthy merchant. He settled in Philadelphia, and was very active in his community, including service as a chief justice and a manager of the Almshouse.

John Savage, III was born in 1832 in Washington County, Maryland. His father, John Savage, II of Philadelphia and his mother , Adelaide H. Hughes of Maryland, were married in Washington County, Maryland on December 30, 1830. According to census records, by 1850 the family had moved to Philadelphia, along with nine other person sin the household. Savage’s father died in 1853, leaving his entire estate to his son, minus an annuity for his wife.

John, III married Isabella Swift Fitzhugh of New York in 1855. Isabella was the daughter of Dr. Daniel Hughes Fitzhugh, who was a surgeon in the fleet of Commodore Perry at the battle of Lake Erie, and also a pioneer of Bay City, Michigan. Prior to the Civil War, the couple had two children: John Savage, IV in 1857 and Anne Dana Savage in 1859. In 1860, his mother Adelaide was living with him along with eight other persons, who held such job titles such as domestic, waiter, and coachman. John’s occupation was listed as “Gentleman,” and his total estate value was $250,000 dollars! (a hefty sum by 1860 standards).

At the outbreak of the Civil War, John secured himself a commission as a captain in the newly forming 3rd U.S. Cavalry Regiment (later to be renumbered the 6th) on May 14, 1861. He immediately began recruiting for his Company H at the Girard House on Chestnut Street in Philadelphia. He quickly obtained his quota of men, and, therefore, was also the first company to reach the regiment’s second camp at Bladensburg, Maryland. At Bladensburg, he was officially assigned to and took command of his company on August 21, 1861. As the first two companies to complete recruiting, his company, along with Captain August V. Kautz’ Company B, was denoted the 1st Squadron. They were also selected as the flank squadron, which was the only squadron in the regiment initially equipped with carbines and acted as the advance squadron during regimental movements. The remaining squadrons were armed only with pistols and sabers.

Captain Savage trained with his regiment through the winter of 1861 at Camp East of Capitol, D.C., near the Congressional Cemetery. He accompanied the regiment upon its initial campaign in March 1862, and served uninterrupted until July 21, 1862, when he took five days of leave. His company, under the squadron command of Captain Kautz, literally led the advance of the Army of the Potomac on its advance from Yorktown toward Richmond as the advance squadron the army’s advance guard. After his return from leave, he served during the remainder of the Peninsula Campaign. On September 9, 1862, as the regiment departed the peninsula, he took sick leave. In October and November, he was listed as “supposed to be in Philadelphia,” and in December, he was listed as “absent without leave since October 10, 1862”on the regimental returns. What the regiment was unaware of was that Captain John Savage resigned on December 23, 1862. The reason for his resignation is a mystery, as he doesn’t appear to have distinguished himself in an overly positive or negative fashion during the campaign. A third child, Daniel Fitzhugh Savage, was born to the family at some point during his service. Perhaps he simply didn’t care for the rigors of active campaigning in the cavalry. The regiment didn’t learn of his resignation until February 1863, while at winter camp. His name doesn’t appear again in records during the war. His mother released her claim to her annuity to John in December 1863.

In 1868, John sold his inherited estate. By June 10, 1870, according to census records, the family moved to Bay City, Michigan – the city her father helped create – and settled at 412 North Jackson Street. John was listed as “without occupation,” and a net worth of $11,000, which if not invested in property likely did not reflect the money from the sale of his estate. A fourth child, Adelaide Hughes Savage, was born in 1867, perhaps named after his mother.

By June 1880, John and his family, along with his mother were living together. His youngest daughter, Anne, died on January 5, 1879. John also employed one elderly servant lady. John was listed as “retired.”
In 1890, John was living at 908 North Jackson Street and employed as the county register. He is listed on the Veteran’s Schedule of Bay City as a captain in the 6th U.S. Cavalry. Interestingly, it listed him as having been captain of company B, and having served a full three years, from May 24, 1861 to May 24, 1864.

John, III died in Bay City, Michigan on April 18, 1896. His wife died in the same city seven years later, on October 27, 1903. John Savage, John II and his wife Adelaide, John III and his wife Isabella, and their daughter Anne Dana Savage, were all buried at Ronaldson’s Philadelphia Cemetery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This cemetery was removed in the 1920s to Forrest Hills, 101 Byberry Road, Philadelphia, and denoted the Philadelphia Cemetery.

A voice we loved is stilled;

A place is vacant in our house,

Which never can be filled.

Fitzhugh Mills was a very early Collin County community. It was started when the Fitzhugh family settled in the area east of present-day Lucas in the 1850s. It was the site of an Indian village prior to that. The land for the Fitzhugh Cemetery was donated by the family and one of its first burials was Gabriel Fitzhugh in 1855. Fitzhugh Mills had a saw mill and a grist mill. Both were highly valued in the developing county.

FITZHUGH MILLS AND SPRING

Fitzhugh’s Saw Mill furnished enough hardwood timber to build Collin County. With its constant supply of water for the boiler of a steam engine, the large spring near Wilson Creek was an ideal place for the Fitzhugh’s Mill.


                The older Fitzhughs, John and George, operated a mill in Missouri before coming to Texas. John and his sons, William and Robert, continued the family’s milling tradition and expanded the business to include another essential industry – saw milling. Fitzhugh-Watts Mill A Brief History of Dallas, Missouri and The Fitzhugh/Watts Mill. East of State Line Road on 103rd Street and Indian Creek Kansas City, Missouri. 1832 Frenchmen George and Jonathan Fitzhugh construct a grist mill on the banks of Indian Creek

 

                At the time, Captain William Fitzhugh established Fort Fitzhugh near Gainesville and led a Texas Ranger company in far West Texas. His brother, Robert Fitzhugh, was the sheriff of Collin County from 1848 to 1854.

                Robert’s headright was 490 acres northeast of the present intersection of Stacy and Country Club, FM 1378. To the east of his land was the Calvin Boales league. In 1853, he bought 160 acres from Boales for 50 cents an acre. This appears to be the land that includes the large spring where the mill was located. His father had bought another 160 from Boales in 1848. During some in-family trading in 1858, Robert acquired this land also.

                By this time. Robert Fitzhugh had bought several other blocks of land from others with large Republic of Texas grants and had a total of 1,384 acres.

                Except for his own headright of prairie land, this land was mostly virgin hardwood forest on East Fork and Wilson Creek, now under Lake Lavon. This timber was harvested for the sawmill.

                Sometime in the mid-1850s, John, William and Robert built mills at the site of the large spring. In 1858, John and William sold their interest to Robert, “in the steam saw and grist mill built by the above named parties on the waters of Wilson Creek on lands belonging to Robert Fitzhugh.”

                The tax evaluation of the machinery was $5,220. Robert owned a thresher in 1853; its engine could have provided the first steam power for the mills.

                The logistics involved in bringing a steam engine and the milling equipment into North Texas in the 1850s is mind-boggling. The machinery would have been brought by ox wagons from Jefferson, the nearest river port, or Galveston, the nearest seaport.

                In November, 1858, contractors John P. Cave and James A. Cave reported to Commissioners Court they had completed bridges on the lower Bonham Road across Pilot Grove and Sister Grove Creeks, but reported, “the bridge upon Wilson Creek is in process and that the Fitzhugh steam mill is broke so that they cannot get lumber to complete said bridge…” They asked for more time.

                Another mill was located at Millwood, south of the present town of Lavon. This mill used an inclined tread wheel until the mid-1850s, when a steam engine was installed. Tradition is the mill at Millwood was “burned down when the war cloud began to get dark…” There was talk of an abolitionist plot.

                Early settler, M.L. Foote said, “After the mill was burned, the boiler and engine were moved from here (Millwood) to the place known as Fitzhugh Mill, southeast of McKinney on Wilson Creek. Here it was in service for many years. The Fitzhugh Mill was considered the best mill in the country.”

                While Fitzhugh’s saw mill furnished the hardwood timber used to build Collin County, the gristmill was of primary importance. One of the millers was Uncle John Campbell. Campbell brought his family from Tennessee with kin, the Faires and Kirkpatrick families, and settled near Fitzhugh’s Mill.

                “At the outbreak of the Civil War,” according to an old newspaper article, “he (Campbell) enlisted in the Confederate army, but as he was a miller by trade, it was considered that he could be of greater service to the Confederacy following his trade than in the ranks, and he was therefore sent back to run Fitzhugh’s Mill, which he ran many years.”

                The mill fell into disuse after Robert Fitzhugh died in 1872. At that time too, the first railroad came to this country and larger mills were built in McKinney and other railroad towns.

                The 1870 Manufacturers Census shows the size of the operation of Fitzhugh’s gristmill. The burr mill was powered by an 18 horsepower steam engine. Two men and two women were employed. The maximum capacity was 150 bushels per day. In the year ending June 1870, the mill ground 3,300 bushels of corn meal, value at $2,200, and 65,000 pounds of flour, valued at $4,800. Fitzhugh’s Mill was a thriving industry in its day.

Much time later J. Ed McGee was the owner of the farm at Fitzhugh’s Mill. In 1923, he showed newspaper editor Walter B. Wilson around the farm and told him of the plans he had for the property.

Wilson wrote: “This farm is a portion of the homestead of Robert Fitzhugh, second sheriff of Collin County…. The old Fitzhugh custom mill was built 70 years ago at that point to get the advantage of the exceptionally good spring water located there. The old mill site and this wonderful spring of water are located on that portion of the Fitzhugh old homestead now owned by Mr. KcGee…

“But the old flour mill which was one of the very first mills located in North Texas was long since dismantled. The old stone foundation for the engine and the remnants of the old milling machinery are still to be seen on the premise, corroding and rusting from disuse and invincible tooth of time.”

W. T. Bevery, Robert Fitzhugh’s son-in-law and administrator of the Fitzhugh estate, was concerned with the corrosion of the mill machinery after the mill was shut down. He told the probate court that at the time he took charge of the estate there was “ a lot of old mill machinery liable to waste and be destroyed,” and to avoid loss he sold the saw to Louis Wetzel for $75.

Everything that could be salvaged was, T.S. Batson and Mark Russell bought 550 bricks from the old boiler at the mill.

 

 

 

FITZHUGH CEMETERY - LUCAS

FM1378 33 07 12N 96 36 12W

The area around the cemetery was known as Fitzhugh Mills. The Fitzhugh family had a mill east of the cemetery. The cemetery is called the Fitzhugh Cemetery and was donated by the Fitzhugh family, through their lawyer, after the death of Gabriel Fitzhugh. The deed was recorded on September 6, 1873, and is listed in Vol. 108, p 503. The deed makes it sound as if Gabriel Fitzhugh was the first burial, dated 1855. The church in front of the cemetery is the Forest Grove Christian Church and some people call this the Forest Grove Cemetery. The congregation recently got a historical marker.

This is one of the oldest cemeteries in the county. It is very large, covering at least 10 acres, and is active. There is a stone entrance on the southwest end. The arch over it says, "Fitzhugh Cemetery" with the dates "1873 to 1973." It is fenced and well maintained. The older stones in the back of the cemetery could use a lot of repair work. Many of the stones are broken off and lying against trees. It is said that many of the graves of early-day settlers were unmarked and cannot be found.

Citizens of West Union, Preston County, VA, on 5 March 1852, asked for a change in the place for holding the German Settlement precinct election from the house of Thornton B. Fitzhugh to the house of Eva C. Hauser. Reel 159, Box 205, Folder 49 http://www.lva.lib.va.us/whatwehave/gov/petitions/nameresults.asp. On tax rolls in 1863, taxed for her hotel = taxed $5. See Ancestry. She was known from Parkersburg to Winchester and from Winchester to Richmond and Baltimore by the old time travelers over the North-western turn pike before the Baltimore & Ohio railway was built. It may be a comfort to her old friends in the old home and at Kingwood, Deer Park, Oakland and Cumberland and in the valley of the Shenandoah, to know that her passing was as sweet and beautiful as had been her life. Important Events in Preston County during the 1800s. In February 27, 1827, the Virginia General Assembly incorporated the Northwestern Road Company to construct a turnpike (toll road) connecting Winchester, Romney, Moorfield, Beverly, Kingwood, Pruntytown, Clarksburg and Parkersburg. However, due to the steep terrain in the Kingwood area, the road's route was shifted south of Kingwood. This made it difficult for the company to attract investors to build the road through the county because most of the county's residents were in the Kingwood area. They were not interested in investing in a road that ran through southern Preston County. As a result, after seeing little progress on the road's construction, the state of Virginia took over the project in 1831. The Northwestern Turnpike was completed over the next seven years (generally running along current U.S. Route 50). It attracted new settlers to southern Preston County by shortening the time and effort required for people and goods to reach eastern Virginia. Also, for the next several decades, many smaller turnpikes and public roads were opened throughout the county, many of them connecting into the Northwestern Turnpike. In the meantime, the northern portion of the county continued to rely on the National Road, which ran from the eastern seaboard to Wheeling, for transporting goods back east. It passed just three miles north of the county's border (generally running along current U.S. Route 40). In 1827, the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company was incorporated and, after securing $4 million in stock, began construction of a rail line from Baltimore to the Ohio River, at Wheeling. The Baltimore and Ohio rail line reached Cumberland in 1850, and Wheeling in 1852. Part of the rail line passed through northern Preston County. As soon as the railroad began operation within the county (the first train passed through the county on January 11, 1853), several small towns formed along the route. The railroad's arrival was also instrumental in the expansion of Preston County's coal mining and timber industries.

Shelby M. Cullom, a Springfield, Illinois politician and lawyer, was a friend and political associate of Lincoln. After serving in the state legislature, Cullom defeated John T. Stuart in the 1864 Congressional election and was in Congress until 1871. Cullom went on to serve a term as governor and then represented Illinois in the U. S. Senate for thirty years (1883-1913).

A letter from Shelby M. Cullom to Abraham Lincoln on December 16, 1861

Springfield Ills

Dec 16. 1861

Dear Sir

Our friend H. G. Fitzhugh Esq of this city designs visiting Washington soon with a view of ascertaining whether there is now any position at your disposal there that would suit him; Mr Fitzhugh has been a steady and industrious Republican here for a long time; is loyal and patriotic in the extreme and needs some good position in which he could honestly make some money; If you can, yourself, or by your influence aid him, it will be remembered by your old friends at home

Yours with great respect

S M Cullom

Edward L. Baker also wrote to Lincoln in support of Harrison G. Fitzhugh. See Baker to Lincoln, December 23, 1861. Apparently Baker and Cullom wanted Fitzhugh appointed commissioner of public buildings.

Benjamin French received the appointment instead of Fitzhugh.

(The Pagosa Spring Sun March 16, 1923) H. T. Fitzhugh. it is with
sorrow that we chronicle the death of another Archuleta county pioneer
and resident, Mr. H. T. Fitzhugh, who passed away suddenly last Friday
afternoon at his Chromo ranch home, a victim of heart failure. He
complained of being slightly ill two days before, but it was not
thought serious and he lived but a brief time following the attack. H.
T. Fitzhugh was born in Henry county Missouri on May 14, 1845 and died
on March 9, 1923, being 77 years, 9 months and 25 days. In 1852 he went
with his parents to California and was married to Miss Kate L. Gatlin
on January 27, 1876, in White Pine county, Nevada. To this union was
born one daughter and seven sons. Mr. Fitzhugh and family came to
Archuleta county in 1887, and have resided since that time on the farm
where he died, being one of the oldest residents of this section. Two
sons, Roy and Edward preceded him to the Great Beyond, passing away in
this county. The daughter, Mrs. Fay Havens, resides in Hollywood,
Calif., while two sons, Clarence and Gordon live at Antonito; one son,
Mack makes his home in Idaho but was home on a visit at the time of his
father's death; and two sons HARRY and Carrell, reside at Chromo. All
were in attendance at the funeral services and with the exception of
the daughter, who was unable to be present. In addition to his wife,
daughter and five sons, he leaves twelve grandchildren, two brothers,
one living in Wyoming and the other in California, and many neighbors
and friends to mourn his departure. He was indeed one of our best known
and highly respected citizens. He was a good neighbor and kind husband,
and one of his neighbors who had known him many years said, "he was the
best father he had ever known." He was a lover of children and
especially his grandchildren, who mourn so deeply his passing. He was a
member of the Knights of Pythias and has represented his home lodge in
the Grand Lodge of Colorado. The heart of the entire community beats in
sympathy with the family in their bereavement. This was evidenced by
the large attendance that gathered at the old home to attend the
funeral services on Monday at 11:00a.m. The services were conducted by
Rev. John Q. Vermillion of the Baptist church at Pagosa Springs, using
as his text the quotations from the fourteenth chapter of John, "If it
were not so I would have told you," after which the sorrowing relatives
and a large number of friends followed his body to the Chromo cemetery,
where it was laid away to await the Resurrection Morning. Thus passes
one of Archuleta County's pioneers and grand old man.

Mrs. Mary Bost, for many years a highly respected resident of Merced county, passed away at the home of her daughter, Mrs. C. D. Martin, at 548 Twenty-first street at 10:45 o'clock Friday night of last week, following a lingering illness due to the infirmities of advanced age.

Mrs. Bost was a native of Henry county, Missouri, and was born March 10, 1847. She came across the plains with her parents in 1852, the family settling on the San Joaquin river and later removing to Snelling, then the county seat of Merced county, where her father, the late Dr. John W. Fitzhugh, became the first Superior Judge of the county. She was married in Sonora in 1863 to John W. Bost, who at various times filled the positions of County Surveyor, County Clerk, Surveyor-General of California, and Assemblyman. Mr. Bost died in this city in January, 1893, and shortly afterwards Mrs. Bost moved to San Francisco where she resided until last December, when she returned to this city to make her home with her daughter.
She was possessed of many womanly virtues and her memory will long be revered by her multitude of friends and acquaintances. Surviving relatives are, two daughters, Mrs. C. D. Martin of Merced and Mrs. A. D. Stivers of Oakland; a sister, Mrs. E. P. Farnsworth of San Francisco, and three brothers, Henry Fitzhugh of Colorado, Cole Fitzhugh of Mendocino county and Gordon Fitzhugh of Wyoming.

The funeral was held from the Martin residence at 10:30 o'clock Monday morning, the services being conducted by Rev. W. H. Hawken of St. Luke's Episcopal Church. Interment was made in the family plot in the Masonic cemetery.

7.2.4.2.9.3.3 - Carter Harrison Fitzhugh - was born 6 July 1861. Carter Harrison Fitzhugh, a descendant of two presidents and many eminent Virginians, was in the iron manufacturing business when the house was built. After 1900 he was president of Fitzhugh Luther & Co., engaged in railroad equipment sales and manufacturing on a national scale, including selling narrow gauge locomotives from his late father-in-law’s Pennsylvania Railroad, when that line converted to standard gauge, to southern railroads where his family background inspired trust. While from Chicago, Carter married Isabelle Scribner, the youngest child of Emma Elizabeth Blair and publisher Charles Scribner and granddaughter of John Insley Blair the railroad magnate. She, the Belle of Belle Plaine and Lake Forest, was born 11 February 1869 and died 25 April 1964. Carter died in Lake Forest, Illinois on 5 November 1932.

8.2.4.2.9.3.3.4 - Carter Harrison Fitzhugh

8.2.4.2.9.3.3.5 - Scribner Fitzhugh

 

Carter Harrison Fitz Hugh came to Chicago from Longwood, Virginia in 1884 and founded a company called Fitz Hugh Luther Locomotive Co, in Hammond, IN. His office was in the Monadnock Building in Chicago, but the family came in 1890 to Lake Forest (30 miles from Chicago). He was president of the Lake Forest Library and a founding member of the Onwentsia [Golf] Club.

They lived at 320 Mayflower Road in Lake Forest, and their 38-room mansion was called "Insley", a reference to Isabelle's grandfather, John Insley Blair, a New Jersey railroad and steel tycoon. The house was built in 1893 and was designed by Holabird & Roche, who were working at the same time on Ft. Sheridan. Holabird & Roche also designed the Monadnock Building (see above).

(Isabelle's mother was Emma Elizabeth Blair, 1828-1869). John I Blair was the "Railroad Tycoon of the West" and was the 19th wealthiest American of all time.

Mr. Fitz Hugh's family in Virginia had made a fortune "brokering the sale of used locomotives from Blair's regauged PA tracks to various impecunious Reconstruction-era southern railroads" [Classic Country Estates of Lake Forest, by Arthur Miller, Kim Coventry, and Daniel Meyer. p. 76, 2003.]

Carter H Fitz Hugh was president of Fitz Hugh Luther & Co, continuing the family business of railroad equipment sales and manufacturing.

Isabelle Fitz Hugh's sister, Emma L Scribner Larned, lived across Mayflower Road in another mansion, "Blair Hall". Emma and Isabelle Scribner were daughters of New York publisher Charles Scribner. Emma married Walter Cranston Larned, a Harvard-educated attorney, art critic, author, and promoter of the arts. Blair Hall was designed in 1882 by William LeBaron Jenney, and was demolished c 1913 (the family may have moved to Winnetka, IL where Walter died 1914). [I think Emma was much older than Isabelle, as Emma supposedly married in 1875. Isabelle didn't marry until 1890.]

Isabelle Fitz Hugh lived at Insley until her death at age 95 in 1964. Her daughter Mildred lived there until 1976. The house was extensively remodelled and restored (on much less land) in the 1990's.

. Isabel lived at Insley from her arrival as a bride in 1893 until she died at 95 in the 1960s

 

7.2.4.2.9.3.4 - Thomas Fitzhugh - was born 12 October 1862 in Goochland County, Virginia, the son of William Henry Fitzhugh of Fredericksburg, Virginia and Mary Ann Harrison. He is described by Paul Brandon Barringer in his book University of Virginia, Its History, Influence, Equipment, and Characteristics, with Biographical Sketches and Portraits of Founders, Benefactors, Officers, and Alumni as “connected with the leading people of Virginia, his ancestors having belonged to those who since colonial days have done most to make the Old Dominion illustrious”. He attended private schools in Fredericksburg before entering the University of Virginia in 1879. After taking a Master of Arts degree in 1883, he began his long and distinguished career as an educator. He had, however, already begun his career when he served as an instructor during 1881-1882 term at Bingham’s School, North Carolina. He was a member of the faculty, a Professor of Latin and English, in 1884 at Central University, Richmond, Kentucky, but that same year he returned to his home state when he was offered a position as First Assistant of the Bellevue High School. In 1889 he accepted a post as Professor of Latin at the University of Texas. There he established himself as a distinguished scholar and educator. When Col. William C. Peters, Chairman of the University of Virginia Latin Department, asked in 1899 to be allowed to resign, he also endorsed the appointment of Thomas Fitzhugh as new chairman. The recommendation was approved , and Thomas was granted a three-year European sabbatical to pursue his interests in ancient literatures. In 1902 he began his duties as chairman, a position which he kept until his resignation in 1929.

On page 115 of the army rolls in the General Land Office it is shown that Dr. Fitzhugh enlisted in the Auxiliary corps at Nacogdoches January 14, 1846 and his place of birth is shown as Virginia. In the Headright Certificate issued to him January 7, 1840 by the Board of Land Commissioners for Bastrop County for one-third of a league of land it is stated that he arrived in Texas in 1835.

Dr. Fitzhugh was Assistant Surgeon of the Medical Staff of the First Regiment at San Jacinto and on December 26, 1839 he was issued Donation Certificate No. 983 for 640 acres of land for having participated in the battle. The land was surveyed in what is now Van Zandt County in 1841. Apparently he did not claim the bounty land due him.

Dr. Wesley Fitzhugh, surgeon and dentist, a brother of Dr. John P. T. Fitzhugh, died in the Texas Army September 11, 1836, while a member of Captain H. R. Wigginton's Company and on January 22, 1840, Dr. Fitzhugh had the following notice inserted in the Austin City Gazette: "I shall make application to the Hon. Judge of Probate of this county (Bastrop) for letters of administration on the estate of my brother Wesley Fitzhugh, who died in the army of Texas in the fall of 1836. P.S. Alexandria Gazette of the District of Columbia and Enquirer of Richmond, Va., will please give the above notice a few insertions."

Dr. Fitzhugh was a practicing physician in Prince William County, Virginia, in 1858, and in 1859 he lived in Madison County, Mississippi. In the Pension Papers of the Archives of the State Library is an application for a pension by Dr. Fitzhugh dated at Canton, Van Zandt County, Texas, December 1, 1870. It contains an affidavit from Captain Jesse Billingsley that Dr. Fitzhugh was promoted to Surgeon in Colonel Burleson's regiment, February 28, 1836 and was discharged sometime in May 1836. The Deed Records of Travis County, Book R, page 65, show that on November 231 1877, he was living in Warren County, Mississippi. He was a member of the Texas Veterans Association.

"Dr. Henry Maynadier Fitzhugh"
Carroll county Times article for 7 May 2000
By Jay A. Graybeal

Several years ago while researching my book about Carroll County during World War I, I quickly became aware of a local physician, Dr. Henry Maynadier Fitzhugh, who was a leading figure in volunteer work. Dr. Fitzhugh served as the chairman of the Council for Defense for Carroll County, an organization that coordinated all local civilian war work activity. After the war, he became a leader in the fields of education and medicine. Tragically, his life was cut short by a fatal disease on January 25, 1935 and his obituary noted his important contributions:

 

"LONG ILLNESS HERE IS FATAL TO DR. FITZHUGH

Westminster Physician Dies in University Hospital--Was Widely Known Throughout State—Headed Education Board and Professional Organizations

Dr. Henry M. Fitzhugh, of Westminster, one of the most widely known physicians in the State, died this morning in the University of Maryland Hospital, where he had been a patient since November.

He had been the president of the State Board of Education since 1920, a member of the State Board of Medical Examiners since 1910, and its secretary and treasurer since 1924. He was the president of the Medical and Chirurgical Faculty in 1930, and was a member of its council and one of its delegates to the American Medical Association at the time of his death. For the past year he had been the president of the Federation of State Medical Boards of the United States.

Widow, Two Sons Survive

Surviving are Mrs. Fitzhugh who, before their marriage, was Miss Mary Aldridge, of Virginia, and two sons, Robert Tyson Fitzhugh, professor of English of the University of Maryland at College Park, and Henry M. Fitzhugh 3d, a student at the University of Virginia.

Dr. Fitzhugh suffered a deep-seated infection which did not yield to treatment and in November he entered the hospital. Osteomylitis was the final cause of death. Mrs. Fitzhugh had been living in the institution and was with him at the time of his death.

Born in Michigan

Born in Bay City, Michigan, September 16, 1875, Doctor Fitzhugh was the son of Henry M. and Lucy Tyson Fitzhugh. The family moved to Maryland. The father was for some time Clerk of the Court of Baltimore County.

Doctor Fitzhugh was a descendant on his father’s side of Col. Henry Maynadier, of Revolutionary fame, who extracted a ball from Lafayette’s leg at the battle of Brandywine. His mother was descended from the Ellicotts, who settled at the falls of the Patapsco and established flour mills there, and also from the Tysons, who were among the first Maryland Quakers.

U. of M. Graduate

Doctor Fitzhugh was educated in the public and private schools of Baltimore and graduated from the University of Maryland Medical School in 1897. He was an intern there and resident physician of the hospital and in 1904 entered private practice in this city.

Married in 1904, he and Mrs. Fitzhugh moved to Westminster four
