St. George Tucker Coalter (2 June 1809-19 Aug. 1839) was the son of Virginia Court of Appeals Judge John Coalter (1769-1838) and his third wife, Ann Frances Bland Tucker (1785-1813). Ann was the daughter of St. George Tucker, a noted lawyer, jurist, and law professor in Revolutionary Virginia, and through her mother, Frances (Bland) Randolph Tucker, was the half-sister of Congressman John Randolph of Roanoke. John and Ann Coalter had 3 children, St. George Tucker, Frances, and Elizabeth, but only St. George Tucker and Elizabeth had children.

Coalter was born in Staunton, VA, during the early period of his father’s career, and then was educated in Richmond, VA, schools. He attended the University of Virginia in sessions 2-4 (1826-1828), and spent the rest of his life as a farmer at his father’s Chatham estate in King William County, VA.

On 16 Dec. 1829, St. George Tucker Coalter married Judith (Judy) Harrison Tomlin (1808-1859), and they had the following children: Walker Tomlin (d. young), John, Henry Tucker, Ann Frances Bland, Virginia Braxton, and St. George Tucker Coalter Jr. St. George Tucker Coalter Sr. died at the age of 30 of an unspecified illness that had plagued him all his life. He is buried at St. George’s Episcopal Church, Fredericksburg, VA. Though he has only a small stone marker, he is noted in the inscription on his father’s memorial:
Touching this spot lie the remains of St. George Tucker Coalter, Esq., only son of John Coalter, who followed his Father to the grave before this tomb was completed. He died August 19, 1839, Aged 30 years 2 Months and 7 Days. A son worthy of such a father.
St. George Tucker Coalter’s three sons also attended the University of Virginia, John Coalter in sessions 26-28 (1849-1852), Henry Tucker Coalter in sessions 26-30 (1849-1854), and St. George Tucker Coalter in session 36 (1859-1860).

[2] Mr. Coalter gave to the Presbyterian Church when it was completed in 1833, a very handsome organ.

Quantity of bar iron

[2 ] I have in my possession a letter written by Ann J. Carter, great-niece of John Patterson from which I have selected interesting facts, and have not quoted the letter verbatim.

John Patterson never married but lived with his sister, Mrs. John James, wife of   Captain John James of Matthews County, on what was known then as “Gunnery   Green”.  Captain John James owned three vessels the “Contented”, the “Anne Elizabeth” and the “Delight”.  Most of Captain James’ voyages were to the West   Indian Islands from Cuba down to the smallest.

There is nothing left at “Gunnery Green” of the lovely gardens which were filled with lilies, roses, larkspurs, hollyhocks and periwinkle.  These gardens   extended to the spring, which is known as “Gunnery Spring” and still furnishes delicious, healthy water.  This spring is southeast of Fredericksburg and on the  outskirts of the town.  There is no trace left of the old Patterson home, but in  those days the Elite of Fredericksburg would assemble on the “Gunnery Green” and  have pleasant chats and a cup of tea.

John Patterson was a very successful merchant on Main Street.  In the War of  1812, when the British were expected to land at Acquia Creek and march to   Fredericksburg, John Patterson with a company of volunteers went to repel the invaders.  He was taken with camp fever and brought home ill.  He told Mrs. James (his sister) that he never expected to marry but that he wanted to live  for her sake and her childrens.  He died at the age of thirty-four, and had a  grand funeral for he was very popular.

We can visualize on the “Gunnery Green”, (in 1814) a beautiful garden of flowers the long porch to the house where Mr. Patterson resided, crowded with Masons  and other citizens.  Their servants Matilda and her brother Jared with tears  streaming down their cheeks, carrying around waiters of wine.  As was the custom  at that time, the glasses tied around the stems with crape, and cake in papers  sealed with black sealing wax.  In great solemnity the funeral guest drank the wine and ate the cake.  Then a procession was formed and all that remained of  John Patterson was borned to Saint George’ss Episcopal graveyard by the music of  the drum and fife playing the sweet mournful strains of “Rosalin Castle” and
there interred with Masonic rites.

John Patterson’s grave is marked by a medium height brown stone with fluted top,about ten feet from the alley, in the middle of the graveyard, and the following  inscription:  marked number 6.
