About Carlton Row

(following edited from the blog of Pat O'Sullivan)

In 1820, Carlton, older brother of Absalom Row, lived with his wife Lucy on a plantation in (it is believed) King George County. They had married in 1818 and their daughter Rachel was born the next year. The [undocumented] story that has been handed down to the present day has it that Carlton whipped one of his slaves, or perhaps had the overseer do it for him. The slave thus abused conspired with the kitchen help to exact his revenge. On March 6, 1820 poison (some say ground glass) was put into the food of Carlton and Lucy Row, killing them both. The infant Rachel was spared. She was brought to her grandfather Thomas Row's house in Orange and would in large part be raised there.
