1. Dumfries Cemetery
I have a special interest in the pre-Rev. War history of this area. An ancestor of mine (Abraham Farrow, d1730) owned deeds for about 2500a of the surounding area.

2. Request for information about William Askins
My ancestor, William Askins, bought land in Prince William county very early-1731. He also shopped at a popular store in Dumfries. I'm looking for ANY information on either my ancestor or the store.
Editor's Note: If you have any information, please add it as a comment to this page or send a note to the editor. We will forward the information to Ms. Askins.
