Sherwood Plantation

I’ve been working hard on adding birth and death certificates to the website. During my work, I came across the Von Schilling family buried in St. John’s cemetery. I kept seeing “Sherwood” listed on their tombstones and decided to do some research. The Sherwood Plantation once stood where Langley Air Force Base is now. There is a good write up about it here.
