Spotsylvania County, Virginia, pre-Civil War

Workspace for Crutchfield-Stapleton-Durrett early 1700's VA. Crutchfields, Durretts, Chews and Brocks owned and deeded land in the area to the church, documented here: Dorothy Vaughan McCormick Powell. “Colonial Churches in Spotsylvania County, Virginia.” The William and Mary Quarterly, vol. 11, no. 1, 1931, pp. 4–6. JSTOR, www.jstor.org/stable/1925082. Accessed 7 June 2020.

The property appears to be the location of two cemeteries recorded in FaG: Spring Forest[1] and Green Branch [2]. The property was divided per the Will of Stapleton Crutchfield in 1818, it is unknown whether the two burial sites are in the same location or not, as the property is privately owned and inaccessible. Burials are recorded at Spring Forest between 1788 and 1844, Green Branch between 1850 - 1861.
