Tomb of Colonel Spotswood

Slumbers of Colonial Dignitary and Friend of Washington Disturbed by Workmen on Old Farm Near Fredericksburg

[Special Dispatch To The Baltimore Sun August 6, 1931]

Fredericksburg, Va. August 5th.
Modern progress rudely disturbed the 173 year old slumber of a Colonial dignitary when the jaws of a steam shovel on New Post Farm, four miles below this city, bit into the long unlocated tomb of Col. John Spotswood, friend of George Washington and son of Gov. Alexander Spotswood, one of the most famous of Virginia's Colonial rulers, it was disclosed today.

The skeleton was found intact, lying just as it had been left by reverent hands nearly a century and three-quarters ago. All except a few fragments of the walnut coffin in which Colonel Spotswood was buried had rotted away, but the silver name plate on the coffin,heavily stained and slightly corroded about the edges was almost intact.

The inscription, "Colonel John Spotswood, departed this life August 26, 1758, age 34, could be read easily without the use of magnifying glasses. Oddly, the same inscription was cared on both sides of the plate, but in different types of lettering although screws rusted into the plate showed which side had been used as the face.

Historian At Scene:
Dr. H. James Eckenrode, State Historian, who was called to the scene shortly after the tomb had been uncovered, said he regarded the find as one of the most interesting made recently pertaining to Virginia's past. "It may result", he said "in the location of the grave of Alexander Spotswood, who died in Annapolis, Md., while on a visit and whose burial place is now not known.

The discovery of Colonel Spotswood's tomb was accidental. It was known that the farm, long neglected from the agricultural standpoint, and now the source of gravel supply, once was the property of the Spotswood family and that there Governor Spotswood, famed as leader of "The Knights of the Golden Horseshoe," established a one time magnificent estate. But all traces of the original house were obliterated long since by time and where the family mansion stood was not known.

Found In Vault:
A steam shovel plunged heavily into the ground, bored its way in, came up with its load and left in its path a gaping hole. Workmen peered down and discerned what appeared to be a vault. One descended through the hole and with a flashlight found the remains.

Operations in the section have ceased and it was reported the State might send experts to exacavate farther by hand. The presence of a quantity of old brick near the spot indicated that the graveyard was surrounded by a wall and workmen said that while digging near the Rappahannock river, about 500 yards from the site of the tomb, they recemtly had uncovered what appeared to be the remains of a brick walkway. They also said remnants of old wine bottles had been found.

The vault in which Colonel Spotswood was buried is eight feel long, four and a half wide and six feet high. At the front was a heavy iron door that had tumbled inward. The vault once was above ground.

Was Important Figure
Colonel Spotswood was a man of importance in Colonial Virginia, despite the fact that he died at the age of 34. He represented the county of Orange in the House of Burgesses from 1748 to 1749 and was representative of Culpepper from 1752 to 1755.

From 1756 until his death in 1758 he was a member of the House of Burgesses from Spotsylvania county, in which his body was found. He married Mary Dandridge, and was survived by two sons, one of whom, John Spotswood, Jr. became a general in the Revolutionary Army and kept up the intimacy with Washington begun by his father.

Colonel Spotswood's father established his home at Germanna, about fifteen miles above Fredericksburg, where he built iron furnaces and opened iron mines. Later he moved below Fredericksburg. After serving as Governor of Virginia he became Postmaster-General of the Colonies and through his initiative the postal service in the new county was expanded and improved.

George Washington, in his diaries and letters, often refers to stopping with the Spotswoods at their place below Fredericksburg. Parents: John SPOTSWOOD and Mary DANDRIDGE.
