From "The Garnetts of Essex County and Their Homes" by William Garnett Chisolm; Genealogies of Virginia Families III:


Muscoe Garnett, was the only child born to James Garnett and Elizabeth Muscoe, on August 17, 1736. His mother died as a result of his birth. He was born at "Mount Pleasant" and was baptized in St. Anne's Parish. He was educated by private tutors, and like his father, served as a vestryman of Vauter's Church. He was a justice of Essex and a member of the Essex County Committee of Safety from 1774 to 1775. He was also a member of a committee in St. Anne's parish to raise provisions for the poor of Boston, Massachusetts, appointed at a meeting held at Rappahannock on July 9, 1774.


Muscoe inherited "Mount Pleasant" under the terms of his father's will (father James died in 1765), of which he had also been named executor. He also inherited his mother's share of the estate of his grandfather, Salvator Muscoe. To these plantations he added by purchase over a period of years a number of other tracts until his holdings were comparable with those of the largest landowners in the county.


On July 9, 1767, he married Grace Fenton Mercer, died June 4, 1814, daughter of John Mercer of "Marlborough," Stafford County, and his second wife Ann Roy, daughter of Dr. Mungo Roy, a Scotch physician. Her father, writing to her brother in England in 1767, says of Muscoe: " Your sister Fenton got the start of you, being married the 9th day of last July to Mr. Muscoe Garnett of Essex County, a match every way so agreeable to me that I solemnly declare I don't know on that could have offered in Virginia or Maryland that I should have preferred before it. He is in possession of an very large fortune, of an agreeable person, good-natured, sober, industrious, and well acquainted with his plantations affairs."


Muscoe Garnett and his wife resided at "Mount Pleasant" until their deaths; his in January of 1803, and hers on June 14, 1814. After their deaths, the plantation passed into the hands of their son, John Mercer Garnett, a bachelor who resided there until his own death on April 3, 1856, when the house was closed. It was destroyed by fire shortly after the beginning of the Civil War, and nothing now remains of even the ruin.


The will of Muscoe Garnett is dated April 25, 1800 and was proved in Essex County on February 21, 1803. The inventory of the estate shows that he owned substantial personal property located at "Mount Pleasant", at Lee's Quarter, at Port Royal, at Newton's, at Occupatia, at the Fredericksburg plantation, and also at the homes of James Hunter and James Mercer Garnett. The inventory of the estate of Grace Fenton Mercer Garnett is found in Essex Co. Will Book No. 19, pp. 298-307.

Notes


Aka: Peter STEINBERGEN, LDS IGI
Father: Dirck Van STEENBERGEN b. 30 Mar 1696 in Amsterdam, Holland
Mother: Bartha COROONINBURGH b. 4 Jul 1700 in Amsterdam, Holland



Peter moved to Virginia around 1754. He was a Revolutionary War Soldier and family tradition states he was an interpreter for GeorgeWashington although no documentation has ever been found to verify hewas an interpreter. He was given a land grant of 2,000 acres.


Peter moved from Amsterdam, Holland to America in 1754. He landed on the island of St. Kitts; from there to Maryland where he traded lumber and spice, and also sold ships and cargo. From there he went to either Culpepper or Harper Co. in Virginia. He fought in the French and Indian War serving as a Lieutenant in Capt. Charles Lewis' Company. I have finally found a possible documented connection between GeorgeWashington and Peter Steenbergen. (S. Claywell) Virginia Historical Magazine, pages 284-287. List of Officers of the Virginia Regiment, 29 May 1754, and the Dates of their Commissions. During the French and Indian War. page 284-Lieutenant-Colonel George Washington, January 25, 1754.


page 285-Lieutenant Steenberger, August 27, 1755. (NOTE-This the first possibility I have found of an actual documented connection between the two men. I still have not found any documentation that Peter served as an interpreter. S. Claywell) The following information was compiled by Hubert Harrison:


A Steenbergen Family History Peter Steenbergen, founder of the Steenbergen family in America, was born in Amsterdam, Holland. He was baptized in the Nieuwe Zijdskapel on January 14, 1724. He was the first child of Dirck Steenbergen, a wealthy merchant, and Martha Coonenburgh. Peter emigrated form Holland to St. Kitts, an island in the West Indies,during the 1740's. He arrived in the United States around 1754 and dealt in lumber and ship cargo in Baltimore.


In 1765 he married Elizabeth Ann Gaines of Culpepper County, Virginia. She was born in 1742, daughter of William Henry Values and Isabella Pendleton, both of distinguished Virginia families. Peter served during the French and Indian War as a Lieutenant in the Virginia Regiment of Capt. Charles Lewis's Expedition against the French between Oct. 10 and Dec. 27,1755. This was part of General Braddock's and George Washington's disastrous expedition against Fort Duquesne, Pennsylvania. He received a two thousand acre land grant on Hickmans Creek, Fincastle (now Jessamine or Fayette ) County, Kentucky, for his service.


During theRevolutionary War, he served as Captain in the Quartermaster Corps for the Twelfth and Fifteenth Colonial Line of Virginia. Family tradition has it that Peter served as interpreter for General George Washington. He was supposedly an excellent linguist and could speak several languages.


Between 1766 and his presumed death in 1779, Peter and his growing family lived in Romney, Hampshire County, Virginia (now W.VA). There he ran an "ordinary" (inn) and was a merchant of sorts. His daily ledger is preserved in the Library of the University of West Virginia.


After his death, Elizabeth remarried to Dr. Joseph Dimone Kayser, a French physician. The Kayser-Steenbergen family left for Mercer County, Kentucky, in the spring of 1784. They had one son, Joseph Kayser. Jr. born in 1781. It is not known where or when Elizabeth died or is buried, but Dr. Kayser and son eventually returned to Virginia. They are both buried at Iron Gate, Virginia, along with William Steenbergen, the oldest son of Peter and Elizabeth.Elizabeth Ann Gaines.


Children are third cousins to presidents James Madison and Zachary Taylor, through the lineage of her grandmother, Mary B. Taylor Pendleton, daughter of James Taylor and Mary Gregory. Incidentally, nearly all the Steenbergens now living in the United States are descended form Robert Pendleton Steenbergen. and I have not been able to find one Steenbergen who is not descended form Peter Steenbergen. To settle all disputes on spelling, the name has always been Steenbergen, as Peter spelled it. I have found several instance of Robert Pendleton spelling it Steen Burgan, an it has sometimes been shortened to Bergen or Burgen. This manuscript is in a constant state of correction and updating, as I receive more family histories from others who are also interested in their Steenbergen ancestry, by Hubert Harrison.
