2. Two Markers North of Gilbert's Corner, VA
south of here (“0.9 miles south of Gilbert’s Corner,” says the 1985 edition of Margaret Peters’ A Guidebook to Virginia’s Historical Markers ). This means that the legendary peach orchard is a little bit further away now. —Ed.

Additional comments.
1. Duplicate Number F-15s
Margaret Peters listed two markers with the number F-15 in her book. The other was associated with Mount Pony, just south of Culpeper, VA and was also along U.S. Highway 15. That marker has since been replaced by a new marker, with the number F-34 (HMDB number 4442).
