Thomas Hornsby was sent to Williamsburg to represent the family's English trading company and, I'm told, was labeled the "first merchant in the colonies." Lived in town and a relative told me that one of the houses in Colonial W. was his. He is buried in the yard of the old church there. I saw his grave as a child on a school trip but got most of this from my grandmother. We are taking a family trip to Williamsburg next week (from Kentucky). Perhaps I'll have more to post when I return.
