American Beacon & Norfolk Daily Advertiser -
  (P. 2, C. 7-  Oct. 6, 1839-Lib. of Va. film #188) OBITUARY-:

" It is our painful duty to announce to the public the death of our esteemed fellow- citizen Swepson Whitehead, Esq. at his residence in this place, on Sunday evening, in the 63rd year of his age.  He suffered from an attack of paralysis some months since, while engaged in Court, and was conveyed to his house, which he was unable to leave until within two or three weeks past.  On Saturday he rode out in a carriage, and his friends, as well as his himself, indulged the hope that he would be able to resume his business during the present week.  But alas! these expectations were doomed to sad disappointment.  On that evening about 11 o'clock, he suffered a second attack of paralysis apoplexy, and died the next evening about the same hour.  

There is not in this section of country, a single individual better known and esteemed than was he; and in the various offices which he filled from time to time, he gave unqualified satisfaction.

He was Clerk of the Borough Court for several years, and was Attorney for the Commonwealth at the time of his decease.  He was President of the Exchange Bank of Virginia, with the exception of a short interval, since it's organization and, although he never held any political office, he was associated with all the literary and benevolent institutions of the Borough, which were ever eager to receive the sanction of his approbation and heed the voice of his counsels.

His leading traits were goodness of heart, and an honesty of purpose which was above all fear or suspicion. 

He has left a wife and family, to lament a bereavement, the severity of which will, we trust, be alleviated by the universal sympathy of our citizens.  His friends and acquaintances are respectfully invited to attend his Funeral from his late residence, corner of Mariner & Chapel Streets, this morning at half past 10 O'clock."

TRINITY CHURCHYARD-Readings by Marshall Wingfield Butt


"Sacred to the memory of John Kearnes, who departed this life, April 17, 1799, aged 46 years."

The year before his death he is listed in the Portsmouth Tithables. In 1802 his wife marries E. Gray, called a Member of Congress. In 1830 Mrs. Margaret Cook, the "consort" of Mordacai Cook, is referred to as the only daughter of John Kearnes. Mr. Cook was one of the wealthiest men in Portsmouth at this time and donated one of his houses on Dinwiddie Street to the Reverend Mr. Wingfield, the elder, to be his residence. He was also one of the first pew renters in 1822 when the church revived under Mr. Wingfield.

Cedar Grove Cemetery, Portsmouth, Va (Many of these stones are in Poor Condition)

Established in 1832, Cedar Grove Cemetery is the first public cemetery in Portsmouth. Resting here are many notables, including veterans of the Revolutionary War through WWII. Two hundred and forty of these are soldiers and sailors who fought for the Confederate States of America.

The cemetery fell into disrepair through neglect and vandalism during the years since 1960. It was restored in 1995-1998 primarily through the efforts of the Stonewall Camp #380, Sons of the Confederate Veterans, with the help from Portsmouth Sheriff's Work Release Program. Security lights and cameras have been placed around the perimeters to deter loitering and vandalism.

Cedar Grove Cemetery is on the National and Virginia Registers of Historic Places. In addition to its historical significance, it is an exemplary model of the nineteenth century funerary art.

"Poplar Hall Grounds Could Be Hiding Archaeological Gems,
Local Woman Says"
Before bulldozers and excavators tear through the
earth, an archaelogical search of the Poplar Hall grounds
might be in order, says Alice G. Walter of Virginia Beach.
Mrs. Walter is a family historian and an eighth
generation descendant of Thurmer Hoggard, the first in the
Hoggard family to own the property.
In February 1761, Hoggard bought 200 acres along Broad
Creek from Lewis Thelaball for 235 pounds sterling. He
built his Georgean brick home there shortly afterward.
Mrs. Walter, who has scoured court records and other
documents in her genealogical work, is not sure what an
archaelogical dig might reveal. But the property has been
the site of shipbuilding and military activity. Somewhere
on the premises might be the keels of three ships burned by
the British during the War of 1812. As late as 1900, the
keels were visible, Mrs. Walter said. . . .
Mrs. Walter has researched the title to the Poplar Hall
territory, which first belonged to William Moseley, a Dutch
merchant who willed land to his son Arthur in 1655. She
also wrote what she called a "potpouri of facts, tradition
and the statements of the Hoggard family members of the
fourth through the eighth generation." . . .
A patent to the land, written on sheepskin and rolled
on a small piece of wood, might be found wherever trash was
being discarded in 1907. The patent would have been in
Arthur Moseley's name and dated 1670. Mrs. Walter said the
document was kept in a living-room closet until Thurmer
Hoggard V married Matilda Alexander of Pittsburg in 1907 and
brought her to the ancestral home. She is reputed to have
cleaned out the closet to store her china. The patent has
not been seen since, and Mrs. Walter thinks it was lost or
thrown away....
