About the Author  of the  Virginia History Series 
 
(Dennis L. Bybee, BA, MS, PhD)
Virginia History Series 
    The author’s interest in Virginia History comes from his genealogical research on ancestors that came to Virginia from England as indentured servants in the mid-1600's
and settled on a family “plantation”at the end of Bybee’s Road in Fluvanna Co. near the present-day Bybee’s Road Baptist Church.

     At present, Dr. Bybee teaches math, science, and Virginia State History at Landmark Career Academy, which is a Fairfax County public high school, and manages a thoroughbred breeding operation at Bybee Road Farm just outside Charles Town, WV.
 
     This farming activity continues his family’s association with racing horses that began on their ancestral “plantation” near the intersection of present-day Route 15 and I-64 about 10 miles North of Palmyra in Fluvanna County, Va.
 
     A map of that “plantation” was originally drawn by Thomas Jefferson’s father and it shows one of the first horse racing tracks built in North America was located there in the mid-1700s.
