Cemetery notes and/or description:
"Wessyngton Plantation" The plantation was founded in the late 1790s by Joseph Washington (1770-1848), of Southampton County, VA, who was also a cousin to President Washington. Washington brought slaves with him to TN from VA. After Joseph's death the estate passed to his son George Augustine Washington (1815-1898). In 1860 the plantation contained 15,000 acres of land, held 274 slaves and was the largest tobacco plantation in America.
