Hello Myra - Thank you for your reply. Since posting here, I have located both properties in Loudoun County that belonged to the Fouche family, including the one where my ancestor's home was and the other one that is likely where the Fouche family member's are buried. The one where the Fouche family member's are buried is very probable the property in Ryan,VA. There is only about an acre of it left and it is right across the street from Heritage Baptist Church, which was orinially a Methodist Church. I called and spoke with the Pastor there about the property, and he said that if there are any graves there, there are no visible markers left. I assured him that according to the Fouche family record's, there were in fact graves there. I believe the property is on the market, and I think that they have not been successful in selling it,because of the graves on it that the seller probably has to disclose. The property that Thomas Fouche purchased that was originally my ancestor's property, some 5 or so owner's previous is about 6 miles south of Leesburg,VA on Gulick Mill Road. On this property, there is still an 18th Century home located on this property that is currently being leased out, but is owned by 3 men who formed a group of investor's and they have plans on turning the 18th Century home into an Inn. Of this property, there is 86.92 acres left. Hope this helps!
James A. Holifield,
