It appears that White Marsh was in Campbell County c 1822. The deeds of
Campbell Co should have records of the transfers of the plantation from
George to his heirs, including the location, that should be traceable to
modern property holdings. Perhaps some kind soul in Lynchburg could follow
up on that. Alternatively the Jones Memorial Library in Lynchburg has a
magnificent historical collection and might be able to help you by
correspondence.

Subject: [VACLYNCH] White Marsh Plantation


Hello,

Does anyone happen to know where White Marsh Plantation might be? George
Francis Reveley, a VMI cadet who served at New Market, is buried there in
the family cemetery.

White Marsh was owned by George REVELEY, who married Judith Sydnor JENNINGS
in 1796. He was involved in the affairs of the city of Lynchburg, and was
one of sixteen charter stockholders of the Farmers Bank. George also served
in the Virginia Legislature for several terms. His plantation, White Marsh,
was just east of Lynchburg. He also had an interest in an iron foundry not
far from his home. Descendants of George lived in the Lynchburg area.

I do know White Marsh was still there in the early 1900s, and was near
Concord Virginia, which is near the Campbell and Appomattox County lines.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Sarah Reveley
