1. Glascock Cemetery (Oak Hill) Marker
Inscription. Here are interred members of the Glascock family of “Oak Hill.” Burr Glascock (1812–1896) brought his family here from Fauquier County in 1851. In 1870, he became the first County Supervisor from Occoquan District. His son William Beauregard Glascock (1861–1931), who was a County Supervisor 1885–89, is buried at Pohick Church in Fairfax County. In 1856, Burr and Emsey Glascock donated the land on which Bethel Methodist Church stands. The house “Oak Hill” was built about 1846 and fell into ruin between 1938 and 1968.
