    Seeking stories about Noland's ferry & tavern

    Tom Lamar Coughlin Newbie

      Philip Noland and then his son Thomas (my g-g-g grandfather) and his son William ran the ferry between Virginia and Maryland near Leesburg, VA from some time before the Revolution and it ran until after the Civil War. Gen. Anthony Wayne's and Stonewall Jackson's troops crossed on it. Today it is a boat landing on the C&O Canal. There was also an "ordinary" tavern on the site, probably with overnight accommodations. I'm hoping to find other stories that mention eating there or spending the night. If anybody has come across stories I'd love to hear about them.
