On April 2, 1750, an eighteen-year old George Washington surveyed 226 acres of land for Evan Pugh, an important figure in the St. David’s Society history and one-time reverend at Welsh Neck Baptist Church. The land was in Winchester, Virginia, where Pugh’s family lived at the time and where Washington was the royal surveyor for that area of the state. In later life, Evan Pugh would credit Washington for teaching him “practical surveying.” Ironically enough, Pugh was also born on April 2, 1729.
