The handsome marble false crypt, of perfect classical proportions, rests over one grave. An antique rose referred to in the poetic inscription on the lid, has survived by the fence.


The Tucker Plot


In 1818, Maria Ball Carter, great niece of George Washington, and her husband, George Tucker, moved to Lynchburg. Their daughter, Rosalie, died within their first year here and Maria died five years later, in 1823. Both mother and daughter are buried in the Tucker family plot. Its enclosure was probably built in the 1870's and its simple wrought iron pickets are without finials or other decoration. Nearby, in an unidentified location, lies another of Washington's great nieces, Eleanor Custis Lewis Carter Patteson. A marker in her memory was placed next to the Tucker enclosure.

"1762 Minute Book: Fauquier Co, VA, M3-348, James Ball as guardian of Burgess Ball did not report 6,200 acres in that county.


1770 Minute Book: Fauquier Co, VA, M4-208, Burgess Ball of Lancaster a minor, represented by "next friend" James Ball (uncle and guardian) in suit against John Rector.


Burgess was a captain in the Fifth Virginia on 10 February 1776 and its major on 10 February 1777. Promotion to lieutenant colonel of the Ninth Virginia came on 17 November 1777. He brought the remnants of the 5 and 9 Regiment to the First on 11 September 1778 but had himself been there since 18 June 1778. Dickinson's Company became LCol. Ball's at that time. The company was merged with that of Lawson's (Sayres's) in May 1779. He was on furlough in Virginia from October/November 1778 through March 1779. On 5 April, it was stated that the furlough was at the order of the Commander-in-Chief. When Col. Richard Parker was ordered south by Washington in May 1779, Burgess and the rest of the First were merged with the Tenth to form the 1 and 10 Regiment. This was done as there were only 357 men in the combined regiment. Administratively, the two remained separate and those of the First would go south under Col. Russell in December 1779. Ball was on command in July and on fatigue in October. His last report was in November 1779 as acting Brigade commander and the rest of the war was in the south in Col. Russell's detachment. Burgess was captured at Charleston on 12 May 1780; parole was granted that kept him in the status of a prisoner of war until 1 May 1783. One list had him as colonel who served to the end of the war but no formal commission has been found. Another had him deranged as a lieutenant colonel on 1 January 1783 but due pay to 1 May 1783 as a prisoner of war. His advanced pay went to a Col. Davis on 5 April 1782. His balance of pay of $4,500 as a lieutenant colonel was drawn on 19 June 1783. Land warrant 905 was awarded on 20 June 1783 for 7,777 acres for seven years service in the Virginia Continental Line as a lieutenant colonel. An additional 300 acres were awarded on 31 May 1811.


His father was Jeduthan Ball who died on 5 March 1749 at age 25 and was buried in White Chapel Churchyard, Lancaster County. Burgess married Mary Chichester on 2 July 1770 in St. James Northam Parish, Goochland County. They had at least one child, Elizabeth Burgess Ball, born there on 16 March 1772. He later married Frances Washington, sister of George Augustine Washington and niece of the General. A war claim was filed in Stafford County. President Washington wrote to him at times from Philadelphia. One of 25 September 1794 stated that a letter from Ball would be transmitted to Gen. (Henry) Knox who would answer his proposition (M. Lee Minnis, First Virginia, 1998, p. 164).


Col. Burgess Ball was of "Traveller's Rest," Spotsylvania Co, and "Springwood," Loudoun Co, VA, and is buried at "Springwood," where is the old Ball graveyard near the Big Spring (Hayden: VA. Genealogies, p. 113)."

William SUMPTER "the Immigrant"

ABT 1692 - ABT 1752

ID Number: I104587

  • RESIDENCE: England and Albemarle Co. VA
  • BIRTH: ABT 1692, Histon, Cambridgeshire, England
  • DEATH: ABT 1752, Albemarle Co. Virginia
  • RESOURCES: See: [S2217] [S3533]

Family 1 : Elizabeth Patience IVERSON
  1. +Martha Patience SUMPTER
  2.  Thomas "Game Cock" SUMPTER

Notes


Aka: William Sumter: Father: Nicholas SUMTER b. 1669 in Histon, Cambridge Co. England and Mother: Katherine MATHEWS b. 1673


"William was of possible Welsh extraction, he was an English redemptioner who indentured himself at a youthful age to immigrate to Virginia. William and Elizabeth took up land grants in Hanover Co.,VA(Now what is Louisa Co.) at Peddy's Creek near Piney Mountain where they farmed and operated a gristmill. William and Elizabeth had six children. This info can be found in Swain Co."Bone Rattler", Vol.9,No.2, 1993 issue pg.51:"


He was supposedly the son of a man of Welsh ancestry, who died when William was very young. He died 1752 in Albemarle Co. Va. in the region that was at that time a part of Louisa Co. Va. (His Will, which was dated on 7 July 1752, was filed in Nov of 1752.)


NOTE: (Many of his descendants later would state that they thought his name was Thomas Sumter, but this has been found to be incorrect.)


William Sumter was an early settler in Albemarle Co. Va. where he resided on Preddy's Creek, near Piney Mountain. He ran a grist mill on the North Fork of the Rivanna River.


Many traditions and stories concerning William & Elizabeth Sumter have been related and written through the years. Unfortunately there is almost no proof to be found to verify these tales. From various accounts, given in varying detail be some of their descendants (James Sumter, Anne F Bate, H.C.Bate, Malvina Terry, Amanda Bate, Patience S. Weatherred and Sarah Porterfield) the saga of this family is as follows:-


It is related that William was an orphan that had been raised by a wealthy aunt in England where he was very well educated. He ran away from his aunt and came to America (possibly to Williamsburg, Virginia?) when a youngman, selling himself as an indentured servant to pay for his passage. His aunt, learning later of his whereabouts and circumstances, sent him a letter and some valuables to pay for the remainder of his servitude. As it was told by James Sumter: "The planter sent a negro to fetch Sumter, cutting timber, to come. He delayed responding and was again summoned saying there was a letter for him. He appeared and the Master said: 'I'll read it for you.' 'No, I can read it myself' (replied Sumter) surprising the planter, who thereafter favored Sumter." Despite this, his Master refused to accept an early payment for his time and he had to serve the full period of his indenture. James Sumter also wrote that later his aunt sent him bedding, furniture, farm equipment, and other goods from England, all of which was taken and kept by his Master.


(NOTE: Most family traditions state that Williams wife's name was Patience, but in his Will he clearly calls her Elizabeth.) She was reported (it appears by a great-grandson, John Weatherred) to have been b. 1695 in England, and d. 1806, aged 111 years, which seems extremely unlikely. A great-granddaughter (Sarah Portfield) wrote that she was in her 90's at her death, which seems more plausible.


It seems more likely that she was b. about 1710, probably in England, and possibly she d. about 1805 or 1806, at the home of her daughter, Patience Suddarth, at Covesville, in Albemarle Co., Virginia. (There is a tradition related that Elizabeth enjoyed good health all her life and died "without having any sickness, only being feeble and confined to bed." It is said that she was sitting in a chair and suddenly called out to her daughter: "Patience! The Master has come and calls for me!" and then died a few moments later) She was buried in an unmarked grave on theproperty of her son-in-law, James Suddarth, at Covesville, Virginia.


It is reported that about 1752 Elizabeth and children were living on the North bank of the Rapidan River, in what isnow Madison Co., Va. ten miles above Orange Courthouse. It is also said that the family lived in the western part of Orange Co., Va. near the Blue Ridge (which may be a confusion with their supposed home in present-day Madison Co. as that is very near the western Orange Co. boundry.) She was probably still living there in 1774 and in her later years made her home with her daughter at Covesville, in Albemarle Co. Virginia. Elizabeth Sumter was highly regarded as a local midwife. A former neighbor would later remember the family and heras being "very poor but beloved and respected."


Elizabeth Sumter, so it was related, belonged to a family of the English nobility (possibly residing in London) andwhen she was about 19 years of age- beautiful and well educated - she found herself with two suitors. One was wealthy and of her own class in society and the other was described as being of "high respectability but moderatecircumstances." He won her hand but her parents opposed the match and forbid her to see him any more, locking her inher bedroom while they were out dining. Elizabeth appealed to a servant to allow her to escape which was done bythrowing beds out of the window and then jumping out on them. She met the man of her choice and was married to him in London. They left that same day for America with Elizabeth possessing nothing of her own but her clothing and a few guineas that her father had allotted her for pin money. During the voyage her young husband became ill and died at sea.


It is said that she arrived at Charleston, South Carolina, going later to Virginia (but possibly arriving inVirginia, instead?) It is told that she met William Sumter upon her landing (in Virginia?), who was so struck by her appearance that he persuaded the Captain of her ship, who felt very kindly towards her, to introduce them.(Or, as one descendant related, the Captain of the ship placed her as a servant in the same household William Sumter was working in.) Supposedly they were married soon after.


Reportedly, in later years, her parents learned of her where abouts and became reconciled to her and often sent her books, embroidered muslins, silks, and other rich and costly goods from England. (One of the dresses they sent her, a pink silk, is supposed to have been later used in a quilt that was passed down through several generations.) It seems fairly certain that Elizabeth Sumter lived to a considerable age as several of her great-grandchildren would later relate memories that they had of her. She was remembered for being an "exemplary Christian, deep piety and her fervent prayers for her offspring" and as "a very devoted, religious woman." She would often impress her family with "very eloquent and touching prayers." She was also described as being "a great reader", often reading the Bible to her grandchildren and greatgrandchildren, many times telling them: "Children obey your parents for all the troubles of my life was caused by one act of disobedience."


NOTE:- It has often been stated and written that there were other daughters in this family, but this seems to be incorrect. General Sumter's granddaughter stated that she heard him say he only had one sister and traditions found among the descendants of Patience (Sumter) Suddarth also related that she was his only sister.

Information found in the Draper Collection of the Historical Society of Wisconsin, consisting mainly of letters sentto Dr. Lyman Draper, as well as notes made by him, in answer to inquiries he made in trying to determine the ancestry of Gen'l Thomas Sumter; Though much data concerning Gen'l Sumter and the Sumter family is to be found in the large series of Dr. Draper's papers concerning the General, the material used to put together the account of his ancestry is to be mainly found in:-
Vol 2VV, pp.17, 82; Vol. 8VV, pp.350; 373-79; 382-89; Vol. 14VV, p. 379; Vol. 16VV, pp. 8-12; and Vol. 18VVpp.79-103; 199; 272.


Generally this consists of interviews Dr. Draper had with Capt. William Cave and John Redd, correspondance with Patience S. Weatherred, Sarah Porterfield, Anne F. Bate, H.C. Bate, Malvina Terry, Amanda Bate, and James Sumter,among others, as well as Dr. Draper's own notes and accounts of interviews he made during trips to Albemarle Co. Virginia and elsewhere.
