Under a l&rge lecust trie near (he bay
shore, seme bnlf-m?e southeast cf Gui on
Hail, is a gravestone which btars rtcord of
tbe death of Jeremiah Brcu?ugh iu tbeenm
mer of 1749, aged 47 year.-. Among the re?
cords at Fairfax C. H. is a commission frrm
Guv. William Gooch to Jeremiah Bronou;?ii
*a uberiff of Fairfax county, dated Augusl
3t-d, 1747, w hich refers undoubtedly to tbe
same persoo. Tbe Maaona and Bronaugbs
were relaied by marriage. There is another
historic incident coontcted with GunBton
which possesses some Interest. As tbe writer
was tramping along tbe bay shore n few
years before tbe iate war be ran across iu
a cove an iron cannon partly imbedded in
tbe sands, and upon inquiry as to how it
came there this tradition was nnfolded:
During the war of 1812 a battery was placed
on tbe bluff at Belvoir to content the passage
oi tbe British ?eet up the Potomac. This
gun wee for some reason lefr at Gray'a HiU,
near Woodlawn, where It remained for some
time until the second Geo Mason removed
it to Gonston and mounted it on tbe shore to
keep off the duck gunners with their large
swivel gnoa. How much it was used far
ihut purpose, tradition saith not, hat lying
iu an unfrequented place over-crown with
vines and bushes the gun with its tradition
wae no doubt forgotten by most of those
who ever know It, until the writer some
years after, being in the interior cf Virginia,
ny chance met with an old gentleman by
name Bamoel Arsll Marstellar, who upon
learning that my home was near Woodlawn,
asked if I knew or had ever heard anything
of a piece of ordnance abandoned at Grey 's
Hill during tbe war of 1812. When told
aboot the Gun-ton relic, hie countenance
lighted up as when hearing from an old
friend. Well, said he, "I am tbe fellow that
left that gun there." It seems that he was
corjneoted with tbe army and was ordered
to transport some gnos from Alexandria to
Belvoir for tbe battery there and tbia one
was abandoned, on account of some mishap,
so the tradition was confirmed. He bad
been Boon after called to other and distant
parts of tbe country and for some reason the
matter was overlooked and forgotten. Mr.
Marsteilar bad never heard a word about
tbe old gun until hie meeting with your cor?
respondent. He bad been familiar with
that part of tbe country in bis early youth,
as bis grandfather was an aide to General
Washington and one of bis pall-bearers. G.
