Mary's brother built Sherwood, in Warren County, near the Shenandoah River. George Washington did his first engineering work in surveying immense tracts of land, by the Royal Grant of the King of England, the property of Lord Thomas Fairfax. One of the places whose bounds were established by Washington was that of Sherwood, owned by Colonel William Davis, who disposed of it to Richard Harfield Timberlake. John Samuel Timberlake in his letter of 4/2/1890 said she was a niece of President Jeff Davis and a daughter of the President's father's brother.
