Dear Mr. Stotts,

Thank you for responding to my query. I am the librarian at Graham Park Middle School. Just outside the school, on a very small grassy knoll, is a Fick cemetery with marked graves dating back to the 1840s. The property on which the school stands was, during the 18th century, a plantation owned by John Graham. He was a Scots merchant in Dumfries and called his home Graham Park. Based upon the information you sent me, this may also have been Ennis Farm. John R. Fick married Mary E. Ennis in 1879.

Several students have asked about the graves so near the building. The house should have been very close to the cemetery, but construction of the school and playing fields long ago obliterated any traces of a foundation. Thanks for your suggestion regarding John F. Fick in Fredericksburg. I live very near there and will contact him.

Sincerely,
Jerrilynn Eby
