Back There, Then
Recorded by Marietta Crichlow, this book chronicles stories of some Glovers, Garlands, Stevens, Crichlows and others….beginning before the Civil War and tied to Nelson County; Appomattox County; and Lynchburg, Virginia; and continuing in the 20th century to Boston;Duquesne, Pennsylvania, and Washington, DC-notably the LeDroit Park and Petworth neighborhoods. Marietta and family are descended from people who were enslaved by Wilmer McLean in Manassas Appomattox Court House in Virginia. It was in Wilmer McLean’s home that Robert E. Lee surrendered to Ullysses S. Grant in 1865. Our ancestors were there. The stories herein tell some of the trails the family took over the ensuing years.
