"The house now used for the kitchen and dining room connected by a breezeway to the main house, was used as the family residence while the main house was being built. There are two rooms on the first floor and two upstairs. The rock chimney has been torn down. It is believed that there was once an outside kitchen, but the location in relation to this dwelling is unknown.
"In 1857, William Shotwell built the main house with two rooms on the first floor and two upstairs. The house was constructed of logs on a native rock foundation with two native rock chimneys. Each room has a fireplace.
"In 1912, Thomas Shotwell added two rooms and a hall, one on each floor, and weatherboarded the log kitchen and dining room and the original house constructed by his father, William Shotwell.
"A spring near the house, where a modern pumping system has now been installed, still provides water for the Shotwell family as it has since 1743."

"Shotwell Hollow is thought to be the oldest parcel of land continuously owned by the same family in Madison County. Surrounded by mountains with Shotwell Run making its way into the valley, the area lies east of Syria at the end of Route 611.
"John Shotwell (II), a descendant of John Shotwell (I) who came from Warwick, England in 1670 and settled in Middlesex Parish, now Lancaster County, was the first to settle in Shotwell Hollow. He was born in 1703, a son of Reuben Shotwell (I). The deed to his land was dated October 12, 1744.
"James Shotwell (April, 1760-?) was the son of William Shotwell (I) and Bettie Jurdine Shotwell. He entered the Revolutionary War at age 16, serving seven years. He was present in Yorktown at the surrender of Cornwallis.
"James Shotwell married Mary Crane in Culpeper County on January 8, 1788, and died at the age of 81 in Madison County, December 1841. Mary Crane Shotwell died September 28, 1828.
"James and Mary Shotwell had four children: William (May 1810-?); Reuben (1812-?), who settled in Greene County; Jechonias Yancey (1813-?); and James (1815-?) who settled in Culpeper County.
"At the death of James Shotwell, his land was divided between two of his sons, William and Jechonias. The acreage received by Jechonias is presently owned by Levi and Robbie Shotwell Utz.
"Land owners to the present day of the Shotwell land were John Shotwell (II); William (I), son of John (II), born in 1735; James, son of William (I), born in 1760; William (II), son of James (I), born in 1810; Thomas N, son of William (II), born in 1852; Aubrey M, son of Thomas N, born in 1893; and the present owner, Lissie L Shotwell, daughter of Thomas N.
"William Shotwell married Judy Garriott, daughter of Moses and Frances Garriott, and he built this house on his approximate 165 acres of land.
"There were eleven children born to William and Judy G Shotwell: William Robert (19 Jan 1833-15 Feb 1888) married Elizabeth HARRISON; Ethelbert Lewis (5 Apr 1835-?), married Judith F LILLARD; George Columbus (May 16 1837-?) never married, settled in Missouri; John Hamilton (6 Oct 1839-1865) never married, killed in the Civil War at the Battle of Seven Pines; Mary Elizabeth (8 Oct 1841-?) married Augustus UTZ; Reuben Harrison (14 Oct 1843-?); Albert Dallas (12 Jan 1846-?) married Mamie F PULLEY and lived in Richmond; Lucetta (22 Oct 1847-?) married Churchill Blakey BATES; Wilson Lauck (27 Jun 1850-?) married Kate Lee MILLER; Thomas Newman (10 Aug 1952-?) married Annie Bell MURRAY; and Sarah Frances (10 Aug 1852-?) married Thomas W ROSSON.
"Thomas Shotwell (10 Aug 1852-- 4 Nov 1929) married Annie Belle Murray. She lived to be 102 years old and died 6 Nov 1966. There were seven children: Claude (17 Mar 1885-?) married Edith SNELLINGS; Lizzie (15 Oct 1966-?) never married; Ethel (19 Sep 1888-?) married Clyde ROSSER; Lucian (16 Nov 1895) married Mary B SNELLINGS; Aubrey (20 Feb 1893-?) never married; Grace (24 May 1896-?) married Jesse TANNER; Ruth (9 Aug 1910-?) married Herbert JAMES."

THE SIMEON BATES HOME: 61
[photo courtesy of Vee Cove] 61
"The home of Turner and Margaret Graves, owned by RS Graves Brothers, dates prior to 1830 and to the family of Colonel Robert Hill. Information on Colonel Robert Hill could not be located. In 1830, Edmund J and Frances R Thompson of Albemarle County conveyed their interest as children of Colonel Robert Hill, deceased, to William H Hill. This was land on which William H Hill lived. Edmund J Thompson married Frances R Hill on November 24, 1824.
"Then in 1835, William H and Sarah Hill, Robert C and Jane Hill, and Mary B Hill deeded the house and 306 acre tract to Simeon Bates. Robert C Hill, son of Colonel Robert Hill, married Mary Jane Hume, daughter of Elizabeth Hume, on August 23, 1832.
"An older house, possibly a summer kitchen or a residence, stood in the back yard. It is not known whether the present stone house was the home of the Hill family or whether Simeon Bates built the present stone house.
"Simeon Bates married Elizabeth BLAKEY on April 5, 1826. There were four children: William N SMITH, son of Fielding and Rhoda Smith, married (1) Elizabeth F Bates on December 20, 1855, and (2) Mary E BERRY, daughter of Elisha Y and Sophia S Berry, on March 19, 1881; Churchill B married Lutitia B SHOTWELL, daughter of William and Judith S Garrett Shotwell, on December 26, 1866; Martha A married BS SMITH; and Robert A married Mary J (maiden name unknown) and lived in Rappahannock County.
THE GRAVES HOME:
"In 1880, the heirs of Simeon and Elizabeth C Bates deeded the stone house and 306 acres of land to James M Graves. James M Graves (20 Aug 1824- 11 Dec 1895) and his wife, Almira A Wilhoit (8 Jun 1827-1907) lived at Mountain View, the present home of Elvin Graves. They had three children: James Thomas (28 Jan 1855-17 Mar 1864); Robert Alexander (28 Apr 1857-14 Oct 1933) married Laura Belle STRICKLER (15 Oct 1858-9 Dec 1937); and Turner Ashby (19 Nov 1861-?), unmarried.61
"Robert Alexander (Strickler) and Laura Belle Graves lived in the stone house for a few years after they were married before moving to Mountain View. Five of their nine children were born in the stone house: Robert Strickler (19 Aug 1882-19 Feb 1964) married Annabel DYE; James Irvin (13 Apr 1884- 26 Nov 1921), unmarried; Moser (21 Jul 1886-24 Oct 1886); Lester Eugene (9 Feb 1888-) married Sarah EARLY; Turner Ashby (27 Apr 1890-9 Jul 1975) married Talmah Hastings WEIKEL; Sarah Almira (19 Aug 1893-) married Walter WYATT; Francis Madison (11 Nov 1895-) married Anne FRAY; Elvin (17 Dec 1901-) married Kate CHARLTON; Elizabeth (12 May 1904-30 Jan 1960) married Harry B SMITH.
"Turner Ashby Graves, Jr and his wife, Margaret LOHR Graves, daughter of Robert Emmet and Mary Virginia Clore Lohr, have lived in the stone house since the late 1940s. They have four children: Harry Franklin (Frank) married Nancy FROST of Pittsburgh, PA; Mary Talmah married William McKnight HODGE; Candace Jane; and William Lohr (Bill).
"The stone house is built in a style typical of 1840 or 1850 vintage homes with a center hallway and two rooms on each side, first and second floors. Each room has a fireplace and a plain mantel. The stone walls are eighteen inches thick .61
"Originally the house had a separate stairway to each of the two second floor bedrooms. The stairway in the dining room has been removed and a door cut on the second floor.
"Additions include the present kitchen and basement, and a family room on the northwest side of the original house. These additions are also of stone."
