From Albemarle County, VA to Chillicothe, OH

In 1837 and 1838 three Monticello families left Virginia for Chillicothe: blacksmith Joseph Fossett and his family; his daughter Ann-Elizabeth Isaacs and her family; and her sister-in-law Julia Isaacs (Mrs. Eston) Hemings and her family. The Fossetts and Isaacses soon left (although the latter returned in 1850); Julia and Eston Hemings, who led a popular dance band, remained for a dozen years.
