The Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 21, beginning on page 304, describes what became of the gold and silver in the Confederate States Treasury. The account was written by Captain William H. Parker, Confederate States Navy, who was responsible for the treasure and its transportation south. What follows are excerpts from that document.

"Mrs. President Davis and family were in town. They had left Richmond a week before the evacuation. I called upon her, represented the danger of capture, and persuaded her to put herself under our protection. A company of uniformed men, under Captain Tabb, volunteered to accompany me. These men were attached
to the navy-yard in Charlotte. Most of them belonging to the game little town of Portsmouth, Va., and a better set of men had never shouldered a musket. They were as true as steel."

"I had several interviews with President Davis and found him calm and composed, and resolute to a degree. As soon as I saw Mr. Mallory he directed me to deliver the treasure to General Basil Duke, and disband my command. I went to the depot, and there, in the presence of my command, transferred it accordingly. General Duke was on horseback, and no papers passed. The Charlotte company
immediately started for home, accompanied by our best wishes. I have a dim recollection that a keg of cents was presented to Captain Tabb for distribution among his men, and that the magnificent present was indignantly declined."

The Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 40, page 186, further state that "Mr. Davis and his cabinet started from Charlotte soon after the surrender of General Lee, towards Washington, Ga., under the escort of General Wheeler's cavalry and one company of the navy yard battalion under Capt. Tabb, the other companies remaining to garrison Charlotte, and were surrendered together with
the rest of General Johnston's army when the army capitulated at Greensboro, N.C., April, 1865."

     Thomas Tabb came to Amelia County from Gloucester County and was living in Amelia County when the county was created from Prince George County. He resided at "Clay Hill," in Amelia County, Virginia.

Thomas was called the richest merchant in Virginia and was a member of the firm Rumbold, Walker and Tabb. This company handled tobacco on consignment, imported slaves, built and chartered ships, and carried on an extensive trade with England. He had a number of stores west and southwest of Amelia.

At various times, Thomas Tabb was Justice and Sheriff of Amelia County and was the county's representative in the Virginia House of Burgesses at Williamsburg for a number of years. He rose to the rank of Colonel in the Militia, and in 1758, he was appointed one of the Commissioners for Amelia and Prince Edward Counties to examine, state and settle accounts of provisions, and to pay off militia and damages done to the Colony's inhabitants by the Cherokee and Catawaba Indians.

Virginia had no banks at this time because the Crown and Colonial Assemblies forbade it. When opposition appeared to wane, formation of the Virginia James River Bank got underway, and plans progressed to the point that Colonel Tabb brought metal plates to Virginia for notes that the bank would use. King George II refused permission. All was not in vane, however, for in 1773 counterfeit English notes began to be circulated, and the Assembly approved the use of the Virginia James River Bank notes that Tabb had obtained, after the denomination had been filled in by hand on each note's face, and the back had been printed; there was a provision, however, that the notes were to be replaced by June 1774, by other notes on English paper. Then, in 1775, the notes were used again because of a paper shortage.

Thomas Tabb died on November 27, 1769, at his Amelia County home "Clay Hill" after several years' struggle with a heart condition called dropsy in those days. He was buried in the Tabb family graveyard at his home. His obituary in a Williamsburg newspaper said, "Few, if any, Virginians traded so extensively as he did; none with better credit for character, and by his death the colony hath lost one of its most useful members.

Most of the above information came from Historical Notes on Amelia County, Virginia, published by the Amelia County Historical Society. He married Elizabeth Marianna Mayo.1 Col. was born on 3 February 1719. He married Rebecca Booker at Amelia County, Virginia, on 10 April 1736.2 Col. died on 27 November 1769 at 'Clay Hill', Amelia County, Virginia, at age 50.1,3 He was buried after 27 November 1769 at Tabb Cemetery, Haw Branch, Amelia County, Virginia.4

     Philip Tabb inhereted "Toddsbury" from his maternal Uncle Christopher Todd. Philip Tabb served as a lieutenant in the Revolution.

The following letter was furnished to me by C. T. Field, Jr. of Gloucester, Virginia, in November 1993. It comes from the William Patterson Smith papers at the Duke University Library and shows that the Revolution did not quite end at Yorktown in 1781. The letter was written to Col. John Page of Roswell.

Sir North River 9th Dec 1782

I am informed by Lieut. Hudgins that six British Barges cont. about 300 men came yesterday into the thorough fare between Gwyns Island and the mainland at the house of Rich. Brooks who they robbed and from there marched about a mile to Mr Laines. This poor gent. they left destitute of every thing but his house and land taking all his slaves, household goods and wearing appearal. Mr. Hudgins collected about 30 men with which he fired on a Barge that was moving up Sluts Creek. He instantly returned to the rest in the Haven and the whole of them now lie at the lower end of Gwyns Island. I have now to inform that out men have not a round of ammunition left and in this situation we are now exposed to the ravages of perhaps the vilest wretches ever collected in such numbers. Ammunition is all we want to keep them at bay. If that cannot be had we must expect to suffer more from this miserable crew than we have done since the commencement of the War. I wait impatiently to know whether we can be enabled to oppose these Bandits and am in the interim with respect, Sir.

Your most ob. Hble. Svt.

Philip Tabb

Mr. Hudgins is informed these Barges had an engagement five days since with those from Maryland that the Commadore of the Sallie unfortunately blew up. The rest returned to Cheriton on the eastern shore.

     Mrs. Lucy Cary, the widow of Dudley Cary, of Gloucester, Va., was among the earleiest settlers of Athens [, Georgia]. She was such a lady as we may suppose Mary Washington to have been. She knew General Washington and his wife well as well as most other distinguished Virginians in her young days. Her manners were formed from the best models of Virginia society - gentle, courteous, dignified, cheerful - as kind to one of her slaves as to a white person of the same age; and the result was that her slaves not only loved and respected her but prided themselves in belonging to an old Virginia family.
