Description

This is the original record from the fee book of Thomas Jefferson settling the estate of Dabney Carr. Dabney Carr was not only a close friend of Carr, but his brother-in-law. Carr and Jefferson attended Reverend James Maury Classical School on the Albemarle Louisa border. As children, they made a pact that whoever was first to die would be buried at Monticello. Thomas Jefferson fulfilled their pact, settling his estate and making Dabney Carr the first person to be buried at Monticello.
