A History of Our Own:  Stafford County, Virginia—Stafford County, Virginia’s unique story is a luxuriant tapestry of ideas, people, and material gifts flowing through time.  Stafford, one of America’s oldest, yet fastest-growing counties, is a place of enormous natural beauty, revealed in rivers, streams, wetlands, and pastures, and fascinating human stories.  George Washington, George Mason, IV, Margaret Brent, James Hunter, Moncure Daniel Conway, Gen. Fitzhugh Lee, and Dr. Kate Waller Barrett lived here.  Stafford has given an American president, three state governors, a U. S. Supreme Court justice, two U. S. senators, two member of the U. S. Constitutional Convention, and three members of the Continental Congress and U. S. House of Representatives.  Beginning more than 110 million years ago in a world of prehistoric sea and land creatures, this book reveals Native Americans, the colonial period, slave masters and slaves, Rebels and Yankees, and a wide range of contemporary Americans.  (2003)
