    There is a looking-glass which formerly belonged to Charles Van Der Veer Woodson of Prince Edward county, which bears this inscription: "This glass belonged to Stephen Tarleton who was my great-grandfather, and died in the year 1687. I have had the present frame put on it this 14th of December, 1794. Signed, Charles Woodson."

    "Burke gives but one family of Tarletons in England; to which belonged Sir Banister Tarleton, the British Ranger during the revolution. They were seated at Lintwardine, County Hereford, and bore for arms, gules, a chevron; erminos between three cinquifoils, or: Crest; on a wreath between two ostrich feathers, arg, a mural crown, thereon a leopard's head. Motto: Post Nublia Phoebus. There is no doubt that it was into this family that Sir Tholllas Fleming married before emigrating to Virginia. (Americans of Gentle Birth, V. 1. p. 360.)
