Special Thanks
I appreciate very much the kind assistance of Scott Arnold, manager of Virginia's historical highway markers program at the Department of Historic Resources. Scott was particularly helpful with updated text for markers, as well as providing me with photos for markers commemorating Mary Randolph and Douglas Southall Freeman. Lucy Coggin of Spence's Point was also gracious enough to open up her home to a stranger and discuss the life of her father with me. Bill Knoll and Tammy Ingle at the Cumberland State Forest were determined to help me find the Charles Irving Thornton Tombstone. Thanks to Bill for taking me out in the field. Ariel Lambert of the Department of Historic Resources also provided assistance with site photographs.
