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.

The Sherwood Cemetery still exists on Langley Air Force Base.

  1. Massenburg – For those looking for information on this line, there were Massenburgs in the Gloucester Point area (VA) during this time. I know at least one of them married into the Carmine family. If you need more info or help on this line, feel free to contact me.
