History Behind the Dr. William Ringgold Room
Dr. William Ringgold was the son of Major William Ringgold of Committee of Correspondence fame. He was married to Martha Hanson and died sometime between 1817-1822. Both Dr. and Major Ringgold were of prominence and men of means during their time in Kent County. At one time Dr. Ringgold owned a part of what became the Mitchell plantation.
One of the deeds from the B&B refers to "The Ringgold Graveyard" and that graveyard did not convey in the transfer. Unfortunately, no one has been able to locate the graveyard on the property, so we are not sure who exactly is buried there.
