This article was first printed in the May 1978 issue of the Fredericksburg Times magazine and appears here with the author's permission.

This American who is truly deserving of the terms "great" and "famous" was born January 14, 1806, in Spotsylvania County. He was the seventh child of Richard and Diana Minor Maury.

In the fall of 1810, the family moved to Tennessee where young Maury grew up and received a good education.
