    1. Imminently Threatened by Development: The LaGrange (Barczewski) farm in Glasgow, DE
    2. Historic Glasgow Park
    3. Imminently Threatened by Development: The LaGrange (Barczewski) farm in Glasgow, DE Stephen J. Nichols, a developer in Glasgow, DE, has signed a contract to purchase, with the intent to develop, the entire Barczewski farm (also known as the La Grange or Dr. Samuel Henry Black farm). This property is crisscrossed by state and Federally recognized wetlands and over 1 mile of drainage, is in the Christiana watershed, contains part of the Glasgow recharge aquifer, and is bounded by over 3/4 mile of the Muddy Run Creek. The 136 acres of woods on the farm are in a US Department of Agriculture's local National Resources Conservation Service long-term tree management plan. The Barczewski farm's 236 acres contain two documented Native American Indian camps, earthen works from the British and Hessian occupation of Aikentown (Glasgow), remnants of the Benjamin Latrobe feeder canal from 1804, and several structures on the National Register of Historic Places (Dr. Samuel Henry Black). Dorcas Armitage Middleton Black was the wife of Samuel H. Black. General Lafayette named the farm "La Grange" while a visitor there in October 1824. The Federal US Censuses of 1810 and 1820 for DE/NCCo/Pencader Hundred, show that there were three FREE African-Americans (unnamed - husband, wife, and daughter) who were part of Dr. Samuel H. Black's household. The farm is located near the northwest corner of Routes U.S. 40 and Del. 896 in Glasgow (New Castle County, Pencader Hundred), and is comprised of a single tract of 236 acres. Approximately 100 acres are pastures, and approximately 136 acres are wooded. The Muddy Run creek and some of its tributaries run through and form the 3/4 of a mile of the northern boundary of the property. This property contains the historic home and farm of Glasgow's early physician, University of DE trustee, and state politician, Dr. Samuel Henry Black. The land, however, had been farmed for over 100 years before Dr. Black acquired it. The property has a carefully restored historic home and preserved granary, each dating to 1815, and more recent barns and outbuildings dating to the property's days in the 1940s through 1960s as the West End Dairy farm. Other family names associated over time with this farm include Middleton, Frazier, Leasure, Congo, Cooch, and Veach. Dr. Samuel H. Black built the property's granary. The building incorporates consolidated storage and processing functions and wheeled vehicle access. This building is the earliest documented example of a drive-through granary of the type that was to become popular throughout the Northeastern U.S. in the mid-19th century. In July 1974, the large manor Federal period home and the granary were incorporated into the National Park Service's National Register of Historic Places (NRHP #74000601). Areas of NRHP significance of this property include Health/Medicine, Architecture, Social History, and Agriculture. In 1985, the La Grange granary was incorporated into the highly selective Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) / Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) conducted by the US Department of the Interior and maintained by the US Library of Congress (Survey # HABS DE-216). There are two archeologist documented Native American encampment sites on the La Grange farm (the Butterworth and the Barczewski sites). These sites date from 10,000 BC to 6,500 BC. Many authentic Paleo-Indian and Early Archaic periods' arrow points, axe heads, and other stone implements have been found on the farm. In the farm's woods there are authenticated, intact remains of British and Hessian earthen trenches from the September 3, 1777, Revolutionary War battle of Cooch's bridge. The trenches run parallel to the remnants of a historic and ancient, but now abandoned road, of which the last remaining vestiges exist on the LaGrange Farm. The earthworks are also parallel Rt. 40 West from Glasgow, DE, to Elkton, MD, and face Iron Hill. There is also documented evidence on the farm of Benjamin Latrobe's venture to build a feeder canal in 1804 (New Castle County Historical Marker NC-59). The feeder canal remnants are intact. The canal was to be built from the Elk Creek to the Christiana River, with the ultimate goal of the canal connecting the Delaware and Chesapeake waterways. The project failed, however, because the state of Delaware ran out of money before the canal was completed. The remnants of the feeder canal run from Rt. 40 West through the La Grange farm. In 1996, Anne Barczewski was honored with a prestigious historic preservation award from the New Castle County Historic Preservation Review Board. The Board placed a protective Historic Zoning overlay upon the entire 236 acres of the La Grange farm. In 1997, Anne Barczewski was recognized as Delaware's Tree Farmer of the Year. On June 27, 1997, Anne Barczewski told preservation advocates, "If it was my last word, my last breath, I'd say 'no' to a developer." If you would like to help protect this property from development and permanently preserve its historic, cultural, and natural resources for future generations, please contact The Friends of Historic Glasgow, ATTN: Nancy V. Willing, 5 Francis Circle, Newark, DE 19711. Telephone: (302) 366-1855.

And I congratulate you on being of the Virginia Grays, even if distant, as they rank as one of the nation's wealthiest families. Unfortunately, my Grays did not take up the offer of their (possible) cousins to emigrate to the Virginias, and so remained decidedly not wealthy. : ) In fact, regarding the early Va.

Progeny tended to have Biblical names, and serve as ministers, often Baptist. Wash Gray became a well known river boat captain when steam was new, in the days of Mark Twain. See Gray's Landing on the Monongahela. 1800s. IN PENNSYLVANIA: Douglas Gray fell in love with Jane McCloskey from a family with strong ties to Catholicism, and this branch became Catholic.

    2. Alec was the son of James and Elizabeth Doran Gray of Glade Hollow, Russell County, Virginia. He was living in Old Salem, Franklin County, Tennessee in 1812. He was a member of Coffees brigade, Jessie Bean's Tennessee Mounted Spies. Was captured by the British at Vilerie Plantation during the battle of New Orleans and had a leg amputated while in captivity. Had at least one son in Franklin County, Tn, named James Madison "Matt" Gray, born 1818. (Married Elizabeth Cox and Elizabeth Humphrey). He supposedly had this son and possibly others by an indian woman. Alec moved back to Virginia and purchased land on Staunton Creek, Wood, Scott County, VA, in 1833. His second wife was Harriett Mason. He, and both of his wifes are buried in Wood, Va. Any information on this family would be appreciated.

I am not completely sold yet, because of the names in Mass., they are the same and they have been here much longer. I found my Matthew and John on the Rev. list you sent the other day, now I need the records from NARA on it, maybe they hold an answer. At that time they were still in Lancaster County, but where????

    3. As far as my Stewarts are concerned, they were in Stokes County NC by 1800. Samuel Stewart was born about 1794, his son James Henry Stewart, born in about 1814, was my 3rd Great Grandfather. Going back to the Gray's, here is what I have for us. Matthias Gray was born about 1730 in Frederick Co, Maryland. His son Jeremiah was born about 1760 in the same county and moved to Pittsylvania Co, Va to get married. He married Nancy Williams on April 15, 1793. Most of the info I have came from other people. Do a search on Mattias Gray on Family TreeMaker. The info was submitted by Molly Shumate.
