You may be right that the brothers bodies were shipped back to Loudoun County. When the brothers sold their family home to the Elgin family in 1802, before migrating to Georgia, it was stipulated that family members could forever gain access to the family graveyard. I have searched for this graveyard several times without success. Across the road from the house is a tree covered slope. Gravestones were kicked around by the cattle, but we could not find any marked by a Fouch. There was one there, however, for a Shumate, the family that purchased the home about 1825 from the Elgins. I do not know if this property had been part of the fouch property.
The Elgins owned adjoining property, and I did see a graveyard there, and it had one Fouch who had married an Elgin. It has all been plowed under by now, and the gravestones stacked.
