BEGIN CHAPTER 4 OF THE 25 CHAPTERS OR STORIES WITHIN THE ABOVE, LONGER VIDEO – THREE WASHINGTON HOUSEHOLDS

Many of the Thompsons worked first at Prospect Hill. But when young Richard Henry Lee Washington, the owner of the 885 acre parcel, with its little main house, died a young bachelor, the 885 acres was divided three ways.

His property was divided among his sister and two brothers. But we do have a little, printed invitation to one of the Fairfaxes to come to a party at Prospect Hill. It was a dancing party and it was called for twelve noon and since the house was diminutive, they must have danced outdoors on the lawn. – John A. Washington

It appears that, with the division of the remaining Prospect Hill, Solomon Thompson, who was about eight years old then, became a part of John A. & Jane Charlotte Washington’s household and farm at Blakeley.
