Here atop the highest crest on the old Turkey Island plantation stands a solitary sentinel to an almost forgotten past. The 13-foot obelisk of imported sandstone is seen now only by an occasional hunter hiking through the dense woods surrounding it. Erected in 1771 by a grateful son in memory of his parents, Richard and Jane Randolph, it also bears an inscription commemorating the "Calamitous Flood of 1771." Both General Pickett and his wife mentioned the monument in their post-war correspondence.
