Bullitt Family -Fauquier Co. VA

Christian, hope all is well with you.
Question. Have you, or to your knowledge
any of your earlier family members visited the burial sites of your direct ancestor Cuthbert Bullitt in VA?
We are aware of the Va. Electric Power Co.
purchase of the Bullitt family land that included the burial site of Cuthbert and Thomas Bullitt, his brother. With the legal status of Cuthbert Bullitt and Thomas Bullitt, his brother who served an important military role in defending our country it seems logical his(Cuthbert) heirs would have made certain via court that the Bullitt family grave sites would have/and maintained.
As you know, Thomas died prior to Cuthbert;
Thomas provided much to Cuthbert's future.
Cuthbert's heirs acted swiftly to receive the lands and other pertinent properties of Thomas Bullitt.
I feel certain the Bullitt family with their legal/knowledge/social standing were able to
acquire legal documents that assured proper protection of the family plot.
Hopefully, you can inform interested family members on this matter.
