W. Whilaker, Bertyville, Va, The following Historical Sketch of the Old Chapel was written by Capl. William N. Nelson, and was delivered by him as an address at the Anniversary Celebration on September 7, 1890. First published in The Clarke Courier, October 9, 1890. IT is difficult to realize how completely the events which interest us now, and make an important part of our active lives, will be obliterated in the short space of two or three generations. Even the passing away of one generation is sufficient to efface the recollection of events thought lightly of at the time of their occurrence, but of so much interest when all the actors in them have passed away and time has enveloped them in uncertainty. IN this era of centennial celebrations it has occurred to us that it is well to mark, in some appropriate way, the hundredth year of this venerable building. No better method of doing this has occurred to us than to gather up the fragments and rescue from oblivion such facts as remain to us of its past history. FROM want of accurate records we are forced to assume the centennial year. As far as can be ascertained, this building Page One was erected in the Year of Our Lord 1790— just one hundred years ago. IN his "Old Churches and Families of Virginia," Bishop Meade writes: "The present stone building was ordered to be built in 1T90. At what time it was completed does not appear, but probably the same year." In a communication to the Southern Churchman of February 3, 1881, from the pen of the late Dr. Robert C. Randolph, he says: "The present building, which was erected in 1798 or '99, stands within a few yards of the site of the old one," &c., &c. On a granite slab placed over the grave of the wife of Marquis Calmes, which, for its preservation, the Doctor had brought from near the Tilthammer mill and placed in this cemetery, he caused to be engraved that this church was erected in the year 1800, In a communication to The Clarke Courier in 1869, signed X, and which, as I recollect, was written by the Doctor, he says: "At a meeting of the vestry in 1790, it was 'Resolved, that a house of worship be erected at the Chapel spring, and that Rawleigh [sic] Colston and Thomas Byrd, Esqs., do signify to Nathaniel Burwell, Esq., the grateful sense of this vestry for his gener- osity, and request him to execute a deed * * * for the two acres of land which he has offered them for the purpose of building a church thereon, and for a burying ground.' The present stone building was erected soon after this time, and was the cradle of the Episcopal Church in this section of country." Though it appears to the present writer that to the old log building, that preceded this, would belong that honor. IT will be seen that there is some uncertainty as to the exact time of the erection of this dear Old Chapel, where some of the saints of the earth worshipped so long, and whose bodies lie in this sacred ground, in the hope of a joyful resurrection. The evidence seems to be fairly in favor of 1790. FOR many years our venerable friend. Dr. Robert C. Ran- dolph, devoted his time and intellect and money to this old church and cemetery. It is well that it should be known to those now living that it is to him we are indebted for the beauty of this cemetery, and almost for the preservation of this building. It was a labor of love to him to keep the building in repair and the grounds in order. The book in which he kept the records of this Chapel, the burying ground, Page Two and Christ Church, Millwood, is invaluable. Could I but copy his simple, guileless, affectionate record, I would have no fear of holding the attention of my hearers much more fully than I can hope to do with this imperfect sketch. As some slight indication of their sense of what was due his services, the vestry ordered to be placed in this house a mural tablet to his memory, which stands just opposite to one he had placed as a memorial of our great Bishop, who commenced his ministry in this house. I WILL now proceed to give a short sketch of the history of this Old Chapel, with such incidents as I have been able to gather, that are suitable to the time and place. In giving the history of the Old Chapel little more is necessary than to follow Bishop Meade in his "Old Churches and Families of Virginia," adding such incidents as are hardly worthy of the dignity of history. ON page 280, Volume II, of his book, he says: "In the year 1738 the Assembly, in consideration of the increasing number of settlers in the Valley, determined to cut off two new counties and parishes; viz.. West Augusta and Frederick, from Orange county and parish, which latter then took in all West Virginia. The county of Frederick embraced all that is now Shenandoah — with a part of Page, Warren, Clarke, Frederick, Jefferson, Berkeley, and Hampshire." [See also Henning's Statutes at Large, Volume V, Chapter 21, page 78.] IT is not pleasant to recall that even in those primitive days public moneys were not always as accurately accounted for as might have been expected. Somewhere between 1738 and 1744, £1,500 had been raised for the purpose of building churches and chapels in the parish. This was at that time a very considerable sum of money. The return in the way of places of worship was very unsatisfactory. In his book [page 281, Volume II] the Bishop says: "In 1752 an Act of Assembly was passed dissolving the existing vestry and ordering a new election, on the ground that it had raised more than £1,500 for building a number of churches, which were unfinished and in a ruinous condition. As the churches of that day and in this region were log houses, costing only from thirty to forty or fifty pounds, there must have been much misspending of money." There is nothing heard of this vestry, except that Page Three they appointed processioners in 1747. I presume these were men appointed to lay off metes and bounds of parishes. It was dissolved in the year 1Y62, and in their place the following vestry was chosen, viz., Thomas, Lord Fairfax, Isaac Perkins, Gabriel Jones, John Hite, Thomas Swearingen. Charles Buck, Robert Lemmon, John Lindsey, John Ashby, James Cromley and Lewis Neill. Evidently a respectable body of gentlemen, in whose hands the public funds were safe, and sure to be properly applied. AS showing the great difference between those primitive days and those in which we live, and with what sort of quarters our predecessors were accommodated, it will be inter- esting and instructive to copy a part of a contract for building ft church, and also to give some account of repairs on one. In 1752, under the new vestry, when things were to be improved on the old style, Abraham Keller contracts, under bond, with Peter Ruffner as security: "To build a chapel at Ephraim Leith's spring (near the south river of Shenandoah [called in an old document Chenandoah Creek] in Frederick county) of logs squared and dove-tailed, thirty feet long in the clear, and twenty-two feet wide in the clear, and eleven feet high from the sill to the wall plate. To underpin the whole, to make four windows thereto, two in the front and two in the back part over against those in the front, each window being to have eighteen panes of glass of the size of ten by eight. To make shutters to the windows with bolts, &c., within to keep them closed when shut, and catcher without to keep them back when open. A good strong door in the middle of the front, with a good lock, &c. A floor of good plank grooved and tongu'd. A communion table with work." [The sort of work is omitted; possibly the copyist could not make out the word.] "A suitable number of benches for seats in the chapel. A Pulpit with a reading desk and clerk's desk, a sounding board over the Pulpit, a good roof of feather edge shingles, and to furnish nails, plank and whatever else shall be necessary for building the said chapel in manner aforesaid, for forty-nine pounds current money of Virginia. THERE is no record of the exact time the old log house (known as Cunningham Chapel) was built. Bishop Meade in his book says [page 283, Volume II] that this chapel, with Page Four several others, was probably completed for use between the 5'ears 1740 and 1750. In the vestry book, of which I have before me a copy made by Dr. Randolph at the request of Bishop Meade, I find no allusion to it until the year 1760, when the vestry contracted with Capt. John Ashby, of Fauquier county, to make the following repairs, viz., "To cover the roof of said chapel with clapboards, and double ten nails, repairing the outside with clapboards, when wanting, &c." Among other items he is to make "a new door to the women's pew," and, "making tight and secure under the eaves of the roof to prevent the birds coming in thereat." I do not learn what is the meaning of the "women's pew." Our ancestors were hardly so ungallant as to shut up the ladies of the congre- gation in one pew. WHILE our church was thus building up in this quiet corner of his Majesty's dominions, it may serve to fix the time in our minds by taking a slight survey of what was going on in some other parts of the world. About this time our Sovereign Lord, the August George II, was King of Great Britain, Ireland, France and the Dominion of Virginia. The occasional mails of that day brought rumors of a general European war, in which England, under Walpole's rule, was ally of Maria Theresa, of Austria, in a war against Prussia, Spain, &c. At this time also that excellent gentleman, Mr, Gooch, was governor of the Colony of Virginia, and within this period Colonel Byrd, of Westover, with his far reaching sagacity, formed the project of establishing the cities of Richmond and Petersburg. All of which sounds like very ancient history. IN his admirable History of the People of Virginia, the distinguished writer, John Esten Cooke, says (page 331): "In Virginia, as elsewhere, towards the middle of the eighteenth century, religion and piety had grown to be conventional." "Men," he says, "were earnestly attached to their church and religion; they would fight for it and, if necessary, die for it; but living in accordance with its precepts was quite a different thing. Reproducing Colton's celebrated apothegm, 'Men will wrangle for religion; write for it; fight for it; die for it; do any thing but live for it.' " Many of the clergy were little better than the layety. Bishop Meade states that often the clergy Page Five acted in a most iinclerical manner, and relates that in a quarrel with his vestry one of them made a personal assault on a high dignity at the vestry meeting, pulled off his wig; and, on the following Sunday, preached from the text; "And I contended with them, and cursed them, and smote certain of them, and plucked off their hair." [Neh. 13: 5-25.] THE temptation is great to wander discursively over this whole field, but it would make this paper too long to give way to such inclination. We are more directly interested on this occasion in the ministers who had charge of this parish. WE learn from the Bishop's book ("Old Churches," &c., page 285) that the Rev. Mr. Gordon was the first. It is not known when his ministry began or ended. The Rev. Mr. Meldrum is next. He continued in charge until 1765. Between him and the vestry a long law suit was carried on, which terminated in his favor. The vestry applied to the Assembly for relief and obtained it. From 1766 the Rev. Mr. Sebastian was minister for two years. In 1768 the Rev. Charles Mynn Thruston became the minister, binding himself to preach at seven places, scattered over the large parish, including Shep- herdstown. In 1769 the county and parish of Frederick were divided into the counties of Dunmore (now Shenandoah), Fred- erick and Berkeley; and into the parishes of Beckford, Frederick and Norborne. There was complaint made against Mr. Thruston that he neglected his duty, in that he had preached in his i^arish church but once since laying the parish levy. How long that was is not stated. The charge seems to have been established, but at the next meeting of the vestry (December 27, 1770), he having given satisfactory reasons for his neglect of duty, was excused by the vestry, and agreed to make up the deficiency by preaching on Wednesday, if required to do so. His salary was 16,000 pounds of tobacco, equal to £214. In 1777 Mr. Thruston laid down the ministry and entered the Continental army as Captain. He was afterward promoted to a Colonelcy, but, having no regiments, rendered no further active service. He never resumed the ministry, and died many years afterwards in New Orleans. FROM the time of Colonel Thruston's resignation in 1777 to 1785 there is no record, as far as I can ascertain, of any minister in the parish. In the latter year a vestry was elected Page Six consisting of Col. Richard Kidder Meade, George F. Norton, wardens; John Thruston, Edward Smith, Raleigh Colston, Gerard Briscoe, Robert Wood and Maj. Thomas Massie. Prior to this the vestries had been legal bodies. Among their duties they collected tithables to pay the minister, to build and repair churches, and to support paupers and other persons chargeable on the county or parish. IT appears that in case of vacancies, ministers made application for appointment, and were selected by the vestries from among the applicants. This was changed by the separation of Church and State in 1780. The above named vestry selected Rev. Alexander Balmaine as minister. He was a native of Scotland, but sympathizing with the Colonies in their struggle with the mother country, he came to this country and became Chaplain in the Continental army. He continued the Rector of Frederick parish until his death. Bishop Meade, having been a lay reader at this Chapel, was ordained Deacon in 1811 and acted as assistant to Mr. Balmaine. The Bishop was minister at the Old Chapel for twenty-five years. He gave up the charge of this church a year after Christ Church, Millwood, was built. In 1835 the vestry called the Rev. Horace Stringfellow. He continued in charge about five years. The exact date of his resignation does not appear in the minutes of the vestry. He occupied the log house, back of the house built by the late James H. Clark, in Millwood. The Rev. Wm. H. G. Jones was called to take charge of the parish as its Rector on the 20th of April, 1840. He continued in charge seven years and resigned on the 15th of September, 1847. He resided in what is known as the Tuley house, now owned and occupied by Mr. John W. Copenhaver. October 13, 1847, Rev. John F. Hoff accepted a call to take charge of the parish. After a short residence at White Post, he occupied the house known as the Rectory, near Millwood, now owned by Rev. Joseph R. Jones. Mr. Hofl's resignation was tendered and accepted on the 21st of June, 1858, having had charge of the parish for nearly eleven years. On the 9th of August, 1858, Rev. Joseph R. Jones accepted a call by the vestry to the Rectorship of the parish. He continued in charge until April 18, 1881, when his resignation was tendered to the vestry and accepted. He lived at his present residence. Our present Rector, Rev. C. B. Bryan, having accepted a call Page Seven to this parish preached his first sermon here on the first Sunday in August, 1881. HAVING begun a Ust of the clergy who have offiiciated as ministers in charge of this chapel, it was thought best to bring it up to the present time. I WILL now return to where the narrative was left off in 1785. Prior to that time, and from the year 1764, the lay readers of the different parishes were John Ruddell, James Barnett, (who was also a vestryman, and afterwards resigned, having connected himself with the Baptist communion), John Barnes, Henry Nelson, James Graham, Henry Frencham, Morgan Morgan, John James, William Dobson, William Howard (reader at this Chapel) and John Lloyd. In the accounts in the old vestry book we find items of amounts paid these lay readers. On which the present custom of voluntary service is a decided improvement. BY an act of the General Assembly of Virginia of October 3, 1780, the old vestries were dissolved and the severance between the Church and State was effected. IN addition to the vestrymen already named it will be of interest to give the names of a few others who served in that capacity prior to 1780. They are Isaac Hite, John Hite, Jacob Hite, John Neville, Charles Smith, James Wood (afterwards a General in the Continental Army, and Governor of Virginia about 1816) ["Old Churches," &c., page 284], Angus McDonald, Philip Bush, Marquis Calmes, John McDonald, Warner Washington, Edmund Taylor, &c. SUBSEQUENT to the division of Frederich parish into the three parishes heretofore referred to, there were other divisions of that parish. It will not be necessary to follow all the divisions. A full account will be found of them in DashiePs Digest of the Councils in the Diocese of Virginia, and in Bishop Meade's "Old Churches," &c. In his account of the parishes in Frederick county the Bishop says: "In the year 1827, Christ Church, Winchester, was organized into a separate parish, to be called the parish of Frederick, Winchester." Luther parish, afterwards changed to Clarke parish (Berryville), was admitted in 1853. Greenway Court parish was admitted in 1868. It was in 1866 that the name of Cunningham Chapel parish was adopted for tliis parish. [See DashiePs Digest for foregoing Page Eight statements.] This is clearly a missnomer. That had never been the name, as is stated in our vestry book for the year 1866. The parishes named above, and others, had been cut off from time to time from Frederick parish. This parish has never been so cut off, and remains what is left of the original Frederick parish. It will be observed that the Winchester parish recognized this in giving itself the name of Frederick, Winchester. WE learn from Bishop Meade's invaluable book [page 288, Volume II] that, among the first things done by the vestry of Frederick, after its reorganization in 1787, was the adoption of measures for the building of a stone chapel where it was designed to erect that one which failed through the disagree- ment of the people and the vestry as to its location just before the Revolution, viz., where Cunningham Chapel stood. The land having come into the possession of Col. Nathaniel Burwell, the same two acres for a church and burying ground, which were offered by Col. Hugh Nelson before the war, were given by Colonel Burwell, and the present stone chapel ordered to be built in 1790. [See action of vestry. Vestry Book, page 68.] The old log building, which has been spoken of, stood a few paces south of the present building, near the north corner of the stone enclosure nearest this house. After Bishop Meade took charge of this church, Mr. Philip Nelson, of Long Branch, was the first lay reader. Of him Bishop Meade says in his obituary: "He was a lay reader in this parish for a long series of years, keeping the church open in my absence. He was one of the best of readers, and had a most melodious and powerful voice." [Vestry Book, page 172.] The ordination of Bishop Meade in 1881, and his becoming minister of this parish, brings us much nearer to our own time. He remained a Deacon for four years, and was then ordained a Presbyter by Bishop Clagett, of Maryland, there being no Bishop in Virginia at that time. He says that his salary during his ministry here did not average more than $250 a year; but, as he writes, he "took care to make the people contribute liberally to various good works." I CAN find no record of a visit to this church by Bishop Madison — the first Bishop of Virginia — but that he did visit here and confirm here was stated by a venerable lady who has passed from among us. She and other young persons were Page Nine confirmed by him. Bishop Meade was, probably, confirmed at that time. This visitation must have been not far from the year 1800. (Since writing the above I find that Bishop Meade, in Volume I, page 22, speaks of Bishop Madison's first and only visit to this part of Virginia. The Bishop says he was a small boy when he was confirmed by Bishop Madison.) OWING to the incompleteness of the records it is difficult to find at what time the first vestry meeting was held in this place. As early as April 24, 1796, a vestry for Frederick parish met, of whom five out of eight present were residents of this immediate neighborhood. In 1802 a meeting of the vestry is recorded, of which a majority belonged to this congregation. At a meeting on the 25th of September, 1803, the members of the vestry reported present are Richard Kidder Meade, Nathaniel Burwell, Thomas T. Byrd, John Page, Robert Page, Robert Carter Burwell, John Smith and Philip Nelson; John Page and Robert Page, wardens. As all of these were residents of this neighborhood and members of this congregation, we may fairly assume that this was a vestry for Cunningham Chapel, distinct from any other church or chapel. HAVING brought the history of the Old Chapel up to a period — though not in the memory of any present — easily in the reach of tradition, some incidents occur to me that may be of interest, and illustrate the customs of our more immediate predecessors. One impression seems to be indelibly impressed on the minds of those who were brought here as children; that is, that the house was intolerably cold in winter. It is well known that the good Bishop, while pastor here, was not unwilling that people should "endure hardness," as a good discipline; but it must be remembered that he spared not himself. Few persons who were brought here as children can forget the melancholy swing of the old C-spring carriages, as they rolled through the mud, nearly axle deep, while their saintly mothers sang the good old hymns and psalms of the collection of that day. One of their favorite hymns was — "Children of the Heavenly King, As we journey let us sing." SOME now living will remember old Robin, the courteous old colored sexton, who had a little stand by the right hand side of the south door as you come in, where he kept a pail of Page Ten cool water from the Chapel Spring and a nice clean gourd, for the refreshment of those who came many miles to church. They came fifteen or twenty miles, so greatly were the services of the church valued. This must have been after the revival of the church in Virginia. For before that I fear many of the gentry would have gone farther to see a cock fight or a horse race than they would to attend service at church. IT would be interesting to know just where the venerable old people sat. This was for a long time the common place of worship for the Episcopalian families of Berryville, Millwood and White Post. Though not difficult to ascertain it would be confusing to attempt to describe where the different families had their seats. In a letter from a lady, whose memory goes as far back as that of any one in the congregation, she says: "The large middle pew held the magnates of the land." That refers to the benches running across the house from the east to the west doors. I will make no apologies for quoting her language. "There," she writes, "sat grandpapa," Mr. John Page, of Page Brook, of whom Bishop Meade said in his funeral sermon, "He was almost worshipped as a being more than human" — "Mr. Nat. Burwell, Mr. Philip Bur well, Uncle Nelson" — i. e,, Mr. Philip Nelson of Long Branch — "in his high-top boots. Mr. Robert Page, of Janeville, always had ruffles at his breast and sleeves, high-top yellow boots, and a beautiful cue." This dear lady, who must have been as lovely in her childhood as she was in after life, writes further: "I had to go there when there was little comfort — I and my little green silk calash lined with bright red. I was dreadfully ashamed of my head dress; but there I stood saying the catechism in the corner by the side of the pulpit." One lady of the congregation recalls seeing a child taken out and chastised by its mother three times during one service — and not only whipped, but afterwards vigorously thumped down on the pew by the side of the wrathful parent. A proceeding that was approved by the Rector. When the house was crowded the children had to sit on the steps of the chancel. THERE is but little further of special interest to record of the Old Chapel — as it is universally called — until it was found necessary to have a larger building. In the record for the year 1832, I find in our vestry book this minute: "About Page Eleven this time the connection ceased between the Millwood— or Old Chapel — congregation and the Berryville and Wickliffe congre- gations." The next vestry reported after that time is composed entirely of gentlemen from the Millwood neighborhood [Vestry Book, 119-20.] CHRIST Church, Millwood, was built in the year 1834. The lot of two acres on which it stands was given for the purpose of building the church by Mr. George Burwell, of Carter Hall, who was always liberal and generous in his donations to the church and to all benevolent objects. The deed by which the lot was conveyed to the trustees of the church is dated April 18, 1832. In his book [page 288, Volume II] Bishop Meade says: "In the year 1834 it was found that the Old Chapel was too small and inconvenient for the increasing congregation, and it was therefore determined to erect another and a larger one in a more central and convenient place in the vicinity of Millwood, on ground given by Mr. George Burwell, of Carter Hall. Such, however, was the attachment of many to the Old Chapel that funds for the latter could not be obtained, except on condition of alternate services at the Chapel. From year to year these services became less frequent, until, at length, they are now reduced to an annual pilgrimage, on some summer Sabbath, to this old and much loved spot; or death summons the neighbors to add one more to the tenants of the graveyard." THE tradition that the annual services held here are prescribed by the contract by which the property is held rests only on the stipulation in the deed from Col. Nathaniel Burwell, that in case it is used for any purpose incompatible with its use as a place of divine worship, it shall revert to him and his heirs. AFTER the removal of the congregation to Christ Church, Millwood, the history of the "Old Chapel" is little more than a record of those who, from time to time, have gone over to the great majority. Eighteen of our soldiers, who gave their lives for the cause of States rights, lie buried here, and memorial services have been held here in every summer since 1866, to keep green the memory of our dead and to decorate their graves with flowers. Page Twelve ©ecoration ®ap ^bbpessi The following address was delivered by Prof. W. H. Whiting, Jr., at the Annual "Decoration Day Service," on June 1, 1897, and has received much favorable comment from North and South. The address is typical of those delivered each year at the "Flower Strewing" of graves in the Old Chapel Cemetery. VETERANS of the Confederacy, Ladies and Gentlemen, Sons and Daughters of Our Fair Southland: WE have met today to do honor to those whose deeds of desperate daring will live in song and story until time shall be no more. We are here in this hallowed place to com- memorate the heroism of those wdio gave their lives to the Southern cause and whose fame will go down in history side by side with that of Leonidas and his heroic Spartans at Ther- mopylaB; side by side with that of Winkelreid and his band of grim mountaineers; side by side with that of the Six Hundred who rode into the jaws of death at Balaklava. We cannot crown our Southern heroes with the laurel wreath of victory, for alas! the cause for which they fought was lost, but we can twine above them, with loving hands, living garlands of immor- telles. We can offer them the tribute of our love and tears, and bending over their graves in sadness and in sorrow can rejoice because of their patient courage, their earnest patriot- ism, their heroic valor, and their deathless glory. A SOLDIER of Napoleon fell on the field of battle fighting so gallantly that the great Emperor ordered that his name should never be stricken from the roll of his company; and ever afterwards, when the name of L'Autour D'Auvergne was called, a man stepped forward from the ranks and reverently lifting his cap responded, "Dead, on the field of honor." So, when the roll of the Confederate dead is called here today, though our lips may not frame the words, our hearts will feel that each one fell at the post of duty. "How can man die better than facing fearful odds. For the ashes of his fathers and the temples of his Gods? " HOW should we determine the meed of honor due to an actor on the stage of history ? By the results acliieved ? No. By his pomp and circumstance? No. By the world's estimate of him? No. Patient self-denial, uncomplaining resignation to the inevitable, and unfaltering devotion to Page Thirteen the right alone give title deed to true glory. The highest encomiums, the most elaborate eulogies which can be pro- nounced upon men in this world do not carry with them the force of the simple statement, "Duty was the watchword of their lives." Judged by this standard, men have never lived more worthy of praise and admiration than those who followed the "stars and bars" of the Confederacy and who died in defence of their native land. THIS is not the time or the place for constitutional argument or historical review. I should like to outline the constitu- tional attitude of the South and explain the historical basis upon which it rests. An examination of the facts would show the righteousness of her cause and would prove to the satisfaction of Southern minds, at least, the doctrine of State sovereignty. But I shall not do this. I shall not attempt to prove that the South was right. You feel and know that already. You realize that our Federal constitution contemplated a union of sovereign States, not a consolidation. You know that it was intended that each State should maintain its autonomy, and not lose its identity, by being merged into an organic whole. Common sense teaches that when the independent partners in a business become dissatisfied, they are at liberty to withdraw from the firm, and some partners cannot coerce others into continuing an association which has become unpleasant and unprofitable. The expediency of secession may be doubted, but the right was clearly ours. IT was to maintain this right that the sword of Lee flashed from its scabbard, pure and bright. It was to maintain this right that the silent professor buckled on his sword and taught the world how men, the swiftest on the march and the most irresistible in the charge, amid the bursting of shrapnel and shell and amid the shock and roar of battle, could stand a horrid hedge of steel, a veritable "stone wall." It was to maintain this right that the lighthearted Stuart rode to his death — Stuart, the fiery Rupert of the South. It was to maintain this right that Jos. E. Johnston, like Moses of old, turned his back upon the seductive allurements offered by the enemies of his country, choosing rather to suffer privation and loss with his own State and among his own people than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season. It was to maintain this right that the husband- Page Fourteen I man left his plow, the mechanic his workshop, the merchant his counting room, the lawyer his brief, the doctor his office, and the clergyman his study. It was to maintain this right that the gallant sons of this gallant county marched to the front with Jackson and did their duty like men, from the open- ing guns at First Manassas to the final charge at Appomattox. WHEN the call of duty came to the men of the South, when each State called her sons to her assistance, boys and gray -headed men took their stand together in the ranks. Veterans who had learned war under Scott at Molino del Rey, at Cherubusco, and at Chapultapec taught their sons and grand- sons the use of the sabre and of the bayonet. It was to main- tain this right that the daughters of the South endured with Spartan courage privations and insults, keeping watch and ward over the homesteads in the smiling valleys and on the fertile hillsides; for this right the fair hands unused to toil, became hard, and brown, and worn. Yes, all classes and conditions, all ages, men and women alike, freely offered themselves to what they conceived to be the cause of liberty and right. WHAT lessons may we gather from the events and results of these years of war and bloodshed? FIRST. We learn that in this world truth is not always triumphant and that error wounded does not always writhe with pain and die among its worshippers. From the dawn of creation it has been true — as the Psalmist declared it to be in his day — that *'the wicked flourish as a green bay tree," and that "the just are not always recompensed upon the earth." In his infinite wisdom the God of Battles did not permit victory to perch upon our banners, and suffered our sun to set in failure and defeat, but we must not think that the day of our destiny is over or that the star of our hope has declined. Divine Omniscience has designed that we should not establish a sepa- rate political existence. Trusting that all things work together for our good and believing that a day of reckoning is coming when all accounts will be settled with the exact impartiality of Omnipotent justice, and when the Judge of all the earth will make it clear that He has done right, we are in duty bound to submit to the decree, and to accept the arbitrament of the sword. Then with community of interest and oneness of pur- pose we may hope to make our common country a united band Page Fifteen of sister States, the land of the free and the home of the brave, thus, perhap.^, achieving- the results for which our Southern Chivalry fought and died in a better and more satisfactory way than that which they attempted. Let us look forward to the time when as Virginia's silver-tongued orator has put it, "the loud hurrahs of the boys who wore the blue shall mingle with the wild, sweet music of the rebel cheer in one grand, national anthem." SECOND. We learn in the second place that earnest perse- verance and devoted faithfulness can accomplish stupendous results in the face of tremendous obstacles and overwhelming- difficulties. THE seceding States occupied a vast territory reaching from the Potomac to the Rio Grande, without railroad commu- nications between its parts and with a scattered white popula- tion; the Northern states lying in compact mass with ready means of communication, were teeming with people. Nine million had to contend with twenty million. The South was mainly engaged in agriculture, depending- upon others for manufactured products; the Northern people were engaged in manufacturing, seafaring and commerce as well. Thus, people of one industry and means of support had to contend against those whose resources were many and various. The South had no government, the North had the machinery of government in full and efficient operation. The South at first had no army or navy or arsenals or forts; the North had all these ready for immediate use. The South was poor, the North was rich. The South had few sources from which to fill up the ranks thinned by disease and by the ravages of war; the North had men in abundance, for recruits poured in from all quarters of the globe. UNDER the stars and stripes were marshalled representatives of all nations — Parthians, Medes, Elamites, Italians, Hungarians, Arabs, Scandinavians, Danes, Poles. From the verdant fields of Erin, from the thistle downs of Scotia, from the sunny land of France, from the vine-clad hills of the classic Rhine, from the frozen shores of Arctic Russia, from the burn- ing sands of African deserts, "from Greenland's icy mountains to India's coral stand," came ruthless mercenaries, agents of fanatical hate, paid to devastate and to ruin. Page Sixteen AGAINST these hordes came forth a devoted band of Southern manhood "of chivalry the flower and pride, the arms in battle bold." For four long years, they maintained the unequal contest. Amid privations and sufferings, dis- couragements and defeats, they did deeds of martial prowess such as the world has rarely seen, until at last the few survivors ragged, hungry and forlorn, laid down their arms at Appo- mattox and bravely faced the future. How could the South accomplish these results for which her resources seemed so inadequate? The explanation is found in the character of the Southern people, in their environment, and in the motive by which they were animated. THE Southern people were a high-spirited, self-reliant race. Each Southern gentleman was monarch in his own domain. Being a man in authority, he said to one "go" and to another "come," and he expected to be obeyed. He superintended the smallest details of his domestic affairs. He followed his reapers as their cradles rang through the golden harvest, and if need be he could lead them when the sun was hottest and the grain heaviest. He understood the mysteries of the joiner's art, and needed no architect to help him direct the carpenters of his own training. He was familiar with the ring of the anvil in his smithy when his own black vulcan forged under his instruc- tions all the implements of iron needed on the plantation. These constant occupations made him an independent, manly man, impatient of restraint, brooking no opposition, and know- ing no such word as "fail." GIVE such a man a cause which enlisted his sympathy and appealed to his patriotism, show him that his rights were being invaded, and think what a soldier he would make. This is what happened: His fiery temper was softened into dauntless courage, his disposition to overcome difficulties became patient perseverance, and his unwillingness to admit failure gave rise to marvelous staying power. His courage, his perseverance, and his endurance, then, made the Southern gentleman, when animated by a righteous cause, well-nigh invincible. PYRRHUS said after the battle of Heraclea, when he saw Roman soldiers laying dead with wounds all in front: "Give me an army of such men as these, and I will conquer Page Seventeen I 1 the world." It is no wonder, therefore, that Southern generals won worldwide fame, for they were the leaders of Southern • men. \ LET us emulate the example of our heroic dead, let us be ' persevering and honest and faithful in the discharge of duty, championing the right and repressing the wrong, and while we throw our influence on the side of peace, harmony, i and good feeling, let us see to it that the day never comes when we shall forget the Southern cause, the Southern soldier, and the Southern grave. Page Eighteen ''^ (gentleman of Verona*' The following letter was written to The Clarke Courier on February 27, 1 902; but, through some unexplciined cause, was not printed in the Courier until March 25, 1903. The authorship of the letter was not disclosed by the editor of the Courier until the death of IVlr. Thomas M. Nelson, when it was thought perfectly proper that he should be given, even at that late day, the honor which his effort deserved. While the letter does not bear directly upon the Old Chapel, it contains the names of a number of men whose remains lie in the Cemetery there. Verona, February 27, 1902. DEAR COURIER: — I have long intended writing you a letter, "it may turn out to be a song or it may turn out to be a sermon." Your letter signed Smart Set so struck on the chords of my heart that I dropped you a line a short time ago, and was much pleased by the very high compliment paid me by One of the Smart Set by saying I was a very nice gentleman, which is after all the highest praise I can ever hope for, as it is about the only ambition I have in life to be known as a gentleman, with all that implies. As Queen Elizabeth wrote James of Scotland, "I have had of this world hard treat- ment though much pleasure with it." And the greatest of all my pleasures having been associated with the Valley of Virginia and especially with the Millwood neighborhood, living as I do far away in this far distant land, and away from my old home and loved ones, makes me feel as if the old State and people belong to me, and I am as much gratified by any success which comes to the young men who are away, and those at home as if I knew them as well as those of my youth and early years. One of the Smart Set kindly said in her letter that the young people of the neighborhood would be glad to see me. It would be unspeakable pleasure for me to know them as I knew all the old people, but April and October are a long way apart and October looks with much more pleasure on April than spring does on the fall, but all that is another story, and I am only using your space and the patience of your readers. I live here on tliis high bluff, over-looking the mighty river and after much wandering in many lands, and at night when the day's work is done, listening to the ceaseless flow of the turbid river, I find "I am dreaming, and bright visions of the past come over the still deep waters in ripplets bright and fast." And nightly ere my spirit kneels in prayer I think over the war, the Page Nineteen oflowing camp fires, the long hot marches, the lonely picket duty. Bands playing Dixie, Bonnie Blue Fag, The Mockingbird, Laurena and all the rest of them, they seem to me to have more music in them than any songs ever written. But as my friends say I am on my hobby now and can ride forever, when I touch the war, as you say ancient history. I do not intend to weary you with battle scenes and with accounts of our great men and generals, for are they not all "written in the books of history." I should like if my pen has the power to make you a few pictures of some of the noble men with whom I served for part of the war in the Company C, Second Regiment, Stone- wall Brigade. Rudyard Kipling says "the officers are well written about," but it is only my Mess-mates and comrades and dear friends whom I shall speak of. There was our first Captain, William N. Nelson, the noblest gentleman I have ever seen. I fancy I can see him now in full dress uniform as he took us on dress parade, as handsome as an Apollo Belvedere, keen of wit, sound of judgment, stern in the performance of duty, expecting all men to do theirs in the cause he loved so well, and every inch a soldier. There was Will Randolph, true and tried, who fell as Colonel of the Regiment on the 13th day of May, 1864; who stood like King Saul head and shoulders above any man, scholar, gymnast, statesman, and the bravest man I thought in the army. I recall how he looked as he walked on top of the works at Gettysburg carrying an oil cloth full of ammunition to the Company. And Robert Randolph, also Captain of Company C, killed at Cedar Creek, a perfect type of Christian soldier and gentleman. And I see Tom Randolph as he looked at the extreme right of the Company as we marched in at Manassas on that bright July morning when our Captain and seventeen men were killed and wounded out of fifty-seven muskets. I OFTEN thought in looking at Tom Randolph that "he is complete in features and mind with all good grace to grace a gentleman," and John Jolliffe, faithful to the end, and badly wounded at Chancellorsville, Carly Whiting who was twice wounded before he was seventeen and died a martyr's death at nineteen, and his joyous laugh was lost to the Cavalry Camp. There were six Grubses out of seven killed and wounded; their mother should have been as proud of them as if they had been Page Twenty the Gracchi, and Lieut. David Keeler, like Hercules, killed without the city wall. I mind well Adam Thompson, the best squirrel shot in the Company, and Bill Thompson, as good a soldier as ever polished a belt buckle or bayonet. Then there was Warren Copenhaver, though dying soon after his first fight, left a glorious record behind him, and Old John Hibbard, shot in the leg at Manassas at the time our Captain got his death wound so far as active service was concerned, and Robert Bur- well, the coolest man I ever saw under fire, and who in the Company does not remember George Burwell trying to draw his ramrod from his gun at Kernstown and crying because he could not get another shot at the Yankees, and which of you old fellows does not remember George's capturing the Yankee Captain at Manassas when he was only fourteen years old. Lord, what a handsome dashing boy he was. There was a man with us on whose memory my mind loves to linger as I look over the past. I fear you will say, Dear Codeier, that I am only calling the roll of honor, but calling the roll was my business at that time, as it was the business of the man of whom I am just speaking, a man who never would take promotion because he thought he could serve the Dear Mother-land better as a private or non-commissioned officer, and because I think he really loved to feel the pressure of the musket to his shoulder, and got more of the glory of the strife on foot doing a private's duty than he would anywhere else. As I heard one of the officers say once he believed he was one of the most reckless men in the army. I refer to Nat Burwell of Carter Hall. It would be useless to have to write his name for any of the old Company to know him when I recall the time before Richmond when Colonel Bots called on Nat to rally the regiment and let them dress on him just as the evening was closing in and the regiment came to his call. Think of the gallant fellow after the battle was fought carrying water to the wounded of the enemy because he said our wounded had their friends to look after them and the others, poor fellow^s, had been left in our hands. That always seemed to me the truest hospitality^ and the highest Christian virtue. Many of those fellows became commissioned officers and many were killed, but all deserved liigh rank. I have not forgotten John McCormick and the way he carried dispatches for General Rhodes at Gettysburg, to whom he had Pa^e Twenty-One been transferred from Company C, as the army marched to Pennsylvania. "I am dreaming and the visions of the past come over the still deep waters in ripplets bright and fast." I find it impossible to mention more than a few of the noble men I had the honor to serve with, in a letter, but I hope it will make some one of the old boys who has more talent than I write what he knows so I may see it way off here and know who has passed over the river and who are still on this side. What has become of Nat Cook, and Phil Nelson, and Maud Lewis? What boys they were, and what men they made, ripening in the hot furnace of red battle. There are many more men I would like to pay a passing tribute to, some who w^ere not of my command, but I shall only speak of two now. Capt. Hugh Nelson, after- wards Major. I mind him well on his milk white steed when the white banner of peace was still spread over our fair land. The greatest scholar, statesman and scientist of the day, man of wonderous charm of manner and bearing, a man all of whose ways were ways of pleasantness and all his paths were peace, but when once the despot's heel was on our shore, he was a very bolt of war, and the beau ideal of a Cavalry Commander, as he led the Old Clarke Cavalry on Victor, when the foremost fight- ing fell. And then there was Dr. Archie Randolph, Fitz Lee's chief medical advisor and friend. What men these are! I have often thought that a king would be blessed if his throne was surrounded and supported by such men. I have purposely only spoken of men whom I knew, but the noble women of that day I dare not try to paint for Shakespeare only painted one Portia, and Thackery one Ethel Newcume, so of course I can't pretend to tread on such holy ground, nor do I see how anyone could undertake to speak of the Mothers, Wives, and Sweethearts and Sisters of such men as I have mentioned from that dear old neighborhood. I am dreaming and I think I see the country as it stretches out from the first rise as you leave the Opequon, going east along the turnpike till you reach the Blue Ridge and all the homes of loveliness and worth as you pass from Upper Longwood. The long low rose covered house, the home of the most gracious hospitality I ever knew, and a little to the left and back of it The Briars, where the great author, John Esten Cooke, lived and worked, and did so much to put the Lost Cause in its proper light. Then a little further is Grafton, Page Twenty-Two where lived Col. R. H. Lee, who fell badly wounded at Kerns- town forty yards ahead of his Company, carrying the banner of the Second Virginia Infantry. Then there was Pagebrook with its beautiful lights and shadows, and Saratoga, with its beautiful spring and stream flowing in and out forever through the broad meadow and deep grass, perfect home of loveliness and worth, and many more. Then there was Carter Hall, the residence of the Burwells, with its beautiful gardens and wealth of flowers, and Annefield which gave the Carters to the Southern cause, whose gardens could have made Elizabeth's German garden blush. I have been back there once in many years, and saw some new places on the road, one handsome pile of buildings with well trimmed lands, and I was told it was the residence of Mr. Mayo, which was well, as it went to show that he had brought back to Clarke many blessings. I could easily fill your paper on the subject of the dear old neighbor- hood, but I fear it would not interest many of our readers, as the night is far spent and I have had a chance to think of many dear and long lost friends, and had a better and fuller view of the places, and as the night is far spent and the day is at hand I will express my best wishes to the rising generation and say that I hope the Hunt Club and the Country Club will both be sources of pleasure and advantage to them, and that the men may be as strong, as wise and as brave and the women as good as those I knew, and everything will be all right. You must remember that it all depends on the women, and that those women in the early sixties were very devout and the church had much weight in all that they did, and I do not see in any of your letters from the dear old spot any references to the church, which quite surprised me because while I am sorry to say I had not much to do with it, still all those men I knew and served with were men influenced by the church more than any body of men I ever served with, and I have been in many lands with many people. There were many fine lads at Rosney and Oak Grove Academy in my day. One boy used to strike me much, I mind well; he had the face of one of Raphael's cherubs, that I once saw in St. Peter's; he was very tall and slight, and had great mechanical talent, the sweetest yet the strongest face I ever saw on a boy, or young man, with very light wavy hair. Isham Randolph; I ween well he must have made a great man. Page Twenty-Three Is he the man I saw spoken of as one of the great engineers of the United States? With a heart full of love for all Clarke County, I am A Gentleman or Verona. Pa^e Twenty- Four Wi)t Cemeterp Eetorb The compiler of the following record of those buried in the Old Chapel Cemetery has endeavored to maJce it as complete and full as possible. Many difficulties had to be overcome in securing the requisite data, and often it has been found impossible to obtain information, either because it was not known who could supply it, or because those who might have furnished it have failed, even after being importuned to do so. Any omissions, therefore, in the following still very incomplete pages, the reader may attribute to these causes. The names of residences are placed in quotation marks, so that they may easily be distinguished from the names of counties, towns, etc. The two names, " The Grove " and " Carter's Grove," James City County, refer to the same place. The designation of Clarke County has been applied to all that part of Frederick County which now constitutes the County of Clarke, although the formation of this County did not occur until 1837. WINNIFRED CALMES. A stone bearing the following inscription was found at "The Vineyard," repaired and placed here by Dr. Robert C. Randolph of "New Market": "Here lies the body of Winnifred wife of Major Marquis Calmes. They were joined in wedlock 26 years and had 6 children. She was a loving, virtuous and industrious wife, a tender Mother and kind Mistress, She departed this life October the 6th A. D. 1751, Aetat 42." Below this on the same stone Dr. Randolph had the following placed, signed with his initials and the date: "Marquis Calmes Jr. was a vestryman of Frederick Parish in 1771. Cunningham Chapel was ordered to be repaired in 1760. The present building was erected about the year 1800. R. C. R. 1859." SUSANNA GRYMES BURWELL. Child of Col. Nathaniel and Lucy Burwell. Born in Millwood, October 16, 1792. Died October 19, 1793. MANN PAGE BURWELL. Child of Col. Nathaniel and Lucy Burwell. Born in Millwood December 19, 1793. Died August 5, 1794. MARIA HOLKER. "Daughter of John Holker Esq., late Consul General of France and agent of the Royal Marine. She died June 3, 1794. Aged 10 years." MRS. JOHN P. PLEASANTS of Baltimore was Anne Cleves Armistead, daughter of William Armistead of "Hesse," and his wife Maria Carter, daughter of Charles Carter of "Cleves" and Anne Byrd of "Westover." Born Novem- ber 7, 1773. Married March 14, 1793. Copied from her tombstone: "The amiable wife of John P. Pleasants of Baltimore, died at the house of her kind friend and brother-in-law Capt. Thomas T. Byrd on June 17, 1801, in the 28th year of her age." After her burial and before returning to Baltimore, her husband upon riding to the Old Chapel planted the willow Page Twenty- Five switch he used as a whip. It took root and formed the great willow that now shades her grave. MRS. ARCHIBALD GARY RANDOLPH was Lucy, daughter of Col. Nathaniel and Susanna Grymes Burwell of "Carter's Grove," James City County. Born at that place November 20, ITYV. She married Col. Archibald Randolph of "Ben Lomond," Goochland County April 6, 1797, Died at "Carter Hall" March 22, 1810. TAYLOR PAGE BURWELL. Eldest child of Col. Nathaniel and Lucy Burwell. Born at "Carter's Grove," James City County November 24, 1789. Died at "Carter Hall" October 23, 1811. ROBERT CARTER BURWELL of "New Market." Youngest son of Col. Nathaniel and Susanna Grymes Burwell. Born at "Carter's Grove" July 24, 1785. Died at "New Market" August 22, 1813. GOV. EDMUND RANDOLPH. Son of John Randolph of Williamsburg and Ariana Jennings of Annapolis, Md., was born at Williamsburg on August 10, 1753. His father was King's Attorney under Governor Fauquier, a staunch royalist and, like the Governor, a skeptic in religion. The son was disinherited by the father because of his disloyalty to the Crown during the period of Revolution; but he was adopted by his uncle, Peyton Randolph, President of the First American Congress, whose estate he inherited. Edmund studied law, was admitted to the bar and became one of the leading lawyers of his day. He seems to have inherited a talent for his profession. His father and grandfather were both King's Attorneys for Virginia and his maternal grandfather was King's Attorney for Mary- land. In the trial of Aaron Burr for high treason he was the principal counsel for the defence and won his case. He was counsel for Joist Hite when the celebrated land case between the latter and Lord Fairfax which had been in court for half a century was finally settled. Edmund Randolph married in 1776 Elizabeth, daughter of Robert Carter Nicholas. He served as Aide-de-Camp to General Washington during the Revolution. On Decem- ber 1, 1786, he succeeded Patrick Henry as Governor of Virginia and in 1790 was appointed the First Attorney- General of the United States (see the Writings of Wash- ington, Vol. X, Page 34). In 1794 he held the office of Secretary of State, vacated by Thomas Jefferson. He was Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Masons of Virginia. He was visiting Colonel Burwell of "Carter Hall" when he had a stroke of paralysis which caused his death, September 12, 1813. Page Twenty-Six MISS PHILIPINA NELSON. Died about 1813. COL. ARCHIBALD CARY RANDOLPH of "Ben Lomond," Goochland County. Son of Thomas Isham and Jane Cary Randolph of "Dungeness" was born in 1769. He married Lucy, daughter of Col. Nathaniel and Susanna G. Bur well of " Carter's Grove," James City County April 6, 1797. They lived at "Ben Lomond" and afterwards removed to Clarke County. He died November 14, 1813. Col. Randolph was a great lover of horse-flesh and he with Col. John Tayloe bred the famous thoroughbred " Sir Archy " in the spring of 1805 on James River. Col. Ran- dolph named the colt "Robert Burns" and when he was two years old sent him to Col. Tayloe, who trained him and changed his name to "Sir Archy." A rich bay in color, of powerful build, he was never beaten except in his first race and defeated the greatest horses of his day. TAYLOE PAGE. COL. NATHANIEL BURWELL of "Carter Hall" was the son of Carter Burwell and Lucy Grymes and was born at "The Grove," James City County, Virginia, April 15, 1750, His father died when he was six years old and provided in his will that during the minority of his son Nathaniel, his estate should be charged with the maintenance of five poor children at school. As a student at William and Mary College at Williamsburg, Virginia, he attained such profi- ciency in mathematics as to win the Bottetourt medal in his class, Bishop Madison winning the medal for belles- lettres in the same class, Colonial Governor Bottetourt having for five successive years given two medals to each graduating class at William and Mary College, one for proficiency in mathematics and the other in belles-lettres. This medal is now in possession of his grandson. Nathaniel Burwell married his cousin, Susan Grymes, March 28, 1772. He represented James City County in the State Convention of 1788 and voted for the adoption of the Constitution of the United States. Having inherited from his father a large estate in Frederick County, now Clarke, he came to thi3 County to live, and began the erection of the "Carter Hall" house about 1792, leaving his James River estate to his eldest son Carter. His home in the Valley was named for his father and his great grandfather, Robert (King) Carter, of "Corotoman," Lancaster County, Virginia. Col. Burwell was greatly interested in the development of this then new country, for besides erecting an unusually large and substantial residence he had built several mills — one, The Tilthammer Mill, for forging iron — and established a vineyard, tanyard, distillery and other industries, all of Page Twenty -Seven which were conducted with methodical care and supervi- sion, as his old account books abundantly show. He was a member of the Vestry of Cunningham Chapel Parish, and gave the land upon which the Old Chapel stands to be used forever as a place of public worship and a burying ground. In accordance with these conditions a yearly morning service is held at the Old Chapel on the second Sunday in September. Col. Burwell died at "Carter Hall" on March 29, 1814, and lies buried at the Old Chapel beside his second wife, Lucy Page, widow of Col. George Baylor, of General Washington's staff. She survived him about thirty years. JUDGE BENNETT TAYLOR. Married Susan Beverley Ran- dolph, daughter of Edmund Randolph and Elizabeth Nichols, his wife. Died in 1816. ROBERT BURWELL of "Long Branch" son of Nathaniel Burwell of Isle of Weight County and his wife, nee Wormeley. He built "Long Branch" and died there about 1817, leaving it to his sister Mrs. Philip Nelson. MRS. WILLIAM MEADE. Consort of Right Reverend William Meade, Third Bishop of Virginia, was Mary Nelson, daughther of Philip and Sarah Burwell Nelson, of "Long Branch". Born in 1792. She married in 1812, and died July 3, 1817. Her first cousin Thomasia Nelson became Bishop Meade's second wife. HON. JOHN HOLKER. "Of Scotch descent, was born in England in the year 1743. His father Jean Holker of France joined the army of the Pretender, fought at the battle of Culloden, 1746, was taken prisoner and condemned to be executed, but made his escape to France. His wife and child, John, then about two years old, followed him. John Holker was sent to this country during the Revolu- tionary War about the year 1778 by the Government of Louis XVI, or rather by Beaumarchais, to inquire into the probability of the success of our armies against England. On his favorable report the treaty was made between Louis and the United States. Mr. Holker was then made Consul General of France and agent of the Royal Marine. Mr. Holker brought letters to this country from Benjamin Franklin to Robert Morris and other members of Congress speaking in the highest terms of his segacity. * " He mar- ried as his third wife Nancy Davis Stillman (nee Stack- pole) of Boston, Mass. Mr. and Mrs. Holker then removed to Virginia and lived at "Springsberry," Clarke County, where he died in June, 1820. Being a Roman Catholic he was buried in holy ground in Winchester, but was rein- terred at the Old Chapel in the Autumn of 1904. Page Twenty-Eight MRS. PHILIP BURWELL was Elizabeth (called Betsey) daughter of Robert and Elizabeth Carter Page of Hanover- town, Hanover county. Born June 30, 1776. She married Philip Bur well of "Chapel Hill" in 1797 and died at "Carter Hall" January 12, 1821. Her stone bears this inscription; "Long may this marble remain sacred to the memory of Elizabeth Burwell — Her labour done securely laid In this our last retreat, Unheeded, o'er her silent dust The storms of life shall beat. These ashes poor, this little dust, Our Father's care shall keep, Till the last angel rise and break The long and dreary sleep." CAPT. THOMAS T. BYRD of "The Cottage," son of Col. William E. Byrd 3d of "Westover" and Elizabeth Hill Carter, only daughter of John Carter of "Shirley," was born January 7, 1752. He married Mary A. Armistead of "Hesse," Gloucester County, on March 13, 1786. He lived at "The Cottage" Clarke County, and died there August 19, 1821. His funeral is said to have been most impressive. Borne on the shoulders of some of his servants singing a solemn dirge as they wound their way down through the meadows for a mile and a half to the Old Chapel.

Died August 24, 1873. GEORGE HARRISON BURWELL of "Carter Hall," son of Col. Nathaniel Burwell and his second wife, Lucy Page, widow of Col. George Baylor, was born in Millwood, October 6, 1799, while the "Carter Hall" house was yet incomplete. He was named for his mother's first husband and for her brother-in-law, Mr. Harrison of "Brandon," on the James River. Until fourteen years old he was taught by tutors at home, where a number of the youths of the surrounding country — including the venerated Bishop Meade — were also taught. Afterward he attended a school in Frederick Town, Md., and matriculated at William and Mary College, Williamsburg, Va., and at Yale College, New Haven. But impatience to marry Miss Isabella Dixon of Gloucester County, Va., interfered with the completion of his college course. After marrying he continued to live with his mother at "Carter Hall," and entered with enthusiasm and rare judg- ment and skill upon the management of his share of his father's large estate. He obtained the best results from slave labor by enforcing strict obedience, tempered with fairness and justice and the utmost consideration for their bodily and spiritual welfare. As far as practicable, reason- able tasks were set which, when completed, the laborers were free to return to their homes. Pleasant scenes can now be recalled of both men and women returning early in the afternoon of an autumn day from the Island in the River after the allotted quantity of corn had been shucked. After harvest, too, faithful labor was rewarded by payment of varying amounts in gold and silver coin. Abundant supplies of clothing and shoes were issued twice a year — woolen clothing in winter and cotton in summer. A house of worship was erected and the Rector of the Parish employed to hold week-day services from time to time, except during seed-time and harvest. Mr. Burwell's fondness for fine stock, especially for the blooded horse, led to his establishing in early life a racing stable, the foundation mares of which were obtained from John Randolph of Roanoke. When racing ceased to be interesting as a personal amusement he sold his stud and invested part of the proceeds in plate. His second wife was Agnes Atkinson of "Mansfield," Din- widdie County, whom he married August 4, 1831. Page Fifly His was a most hospitable and generous nature. He gave the land upon which Christ Church, Millwood, now stands, and contributed largely to all good objects within the Parish and out of it, among others the American Bible Society and the Emancipation Society for the emigration of freed negroes to Liberia. When the Civil War arose he was a warm sympathizer with the South, gave largely to the cause and invested largely in its securities. In the conflict he lost a beloved son in the Stonewall Brigade and almost all of his property except his real estate. He survived the social and economical upheaval for more than eight years and bore bravely his part of the trials and deprivations of the period. Few men studied the Bible more than he did, comparing Scripture with Scripture by the aid of the most approved commentaries. His death took place at " Carter Hall" on October 5, 1873.
