- 1773 – Dabney Carr died at Charlottesville of bilious fever. According to family tradition, in Thomas Jefferson’s absence Carr was buried at Shadwell, but upon his return Jefferson had a graveyard prepared at Monticello and reinterred Carr there at a spot the two had previously chosen, which served thereafter as the Jefferson family cemetery and Jefferson's own burial spot.
