    Notes 
    • From "History of Pittsylvania County" page 172:

      "There is a tradition in the family that Edmund Fitzgerald was born upon the high seas, his parents being emigrants to America. He first appears in Pittsylvania records in 1778, when he purchased 100 acres on the north side of Banister River. In 1814 he and his wife Mellicent (Payne) made a deed of gift of 300 acres on Banister River, which he had purchased from Haynes Morgan, to their son Edmund Fitzgerald, Jr. Here Edmund, Jr. built his home, which is standing today in a fine state of preservation, owned by his grandson, Samuel Stone. The will of Edmund Fitzgerald, Sr. was proven January, 1848, in which he made sons Reuben, Samuel, Edmund Jr. James and William Fitzgerald; daughters, Nancy, wife of Hardin Wilson, and Elizabeth, the wife of James H. Stone. The latter settled the fine old place, "Oak Grove" with its boxwood gardens."

      page 229: "Among those early Pittsylvania homes whose memories are fragrant of a gracious hospitality and cultured living may be mentioned....the Edmond Fitzgerald home of White Falls...."
