Birth: 1727
Westmoreland County
Virginia, USA
Death: Feb. 16, 1774
Monroe Hall
Westmoreland County
Virginia, USA

Lee Langston-Harrison's A PRESIDENTIAL LEGACY, Fredericksburg, VA, 330 pages, published by the James Monroe Museum in 1997, includes a photo of fragments of Spence Monroe's gravestone, that were recovered by a Monroe descendant in 1954. Page 16 of that same publication links the fragments to President James Monroe's birthplace. So far, the President's mother's grave has not been discovered, but it can be assumed she was buried there as well. In Harry Ammon's JAMES MONROE, THE QUEST FOR NATIONAL IDENTITY, Charlottesville, VA, 706 pages, published by the University Press of Virginia, note 5 (p. 578) indicates that Monroe's mother, Elizabeth, died first--earlier in the 1770's. Despite these clues, no other trace of the graveyard has surfaced.
