8. Patrick Magruder
Patrick Magruder, son of Samuel Wade Magruder, was born at Locust Grove in 1769. He served a term as a Republican Congressman from 1805 to 1807. He lost his job as Clerk of Congress and Librarian of Congress in January of 1815 when he resigned over his failure to protect the library and other congressional records from destruction by the British in August of 1814 as well as an apparent shortage of $20,000 in his accounts.
