About Ann Amelia Broadwater (Markham)

Daughter of Col. John Markham. She and her first husband, Dr. Thomas Pierson had two sons and two daughters. She and her second husband, Col. Broadwater, had five children.

Falls Church: Fence and Fireside By Melvin Lee Steadman, Jr., p. 275: "After 1780 he (Col. Charles Broadwater) moved to his 'Springfield' plantation in present-day Vienna. Here he lived out his old age in a quiet way, and was buried in the garden there beside his wife."

Others give the date of the Broadwaters' move from Brandymore to Springfield as circa 1746 but if 1780 is correct, it would seem less likely that Col. Broadwater's mother was buried in the family cemetery here.

Falls Church: Fence and Fireside By Melvin Lee Steadman, Jr., p. 275: "She was older than Colonel Broadwater by ten years, and died June 29, 1796, age 87 years (West Bible. Mrs. E.S. Brooks wrote concerning Mrs. Broadwater: The wife of Col. Chas. Broadwater belonged to a family of English descent, with a long line of distinguished ancestors, whose record shows frequent intermarriages with titled nobility; this fact, combined with her remarkable beauty, elegance, and dignity, gained for her great admiration and she was often styled 'Queen of Women.' Arrayed in her long trained gowns of velvet and satin, with her dainty high heeled slippers, seated in her chair of state, with a maid on either side waiving peacock fans, to cool the sultry air, or put to flight the daring fly, she would graciously receive her many friends and distinguished guests."
