In 1774, he was the principal author of the Fairfax Resolves, and in 1776, the principal writer of the Virginia constitution and declaration of rights. The first ten amendments of the constitution were added, in part, because of his insistence on the necessity for a federal bill of rights.

George Washington, (1732-1799), was born in Westmoreland County, Virginia, and moved to "Mount Vernon" in Fairfax County when he was sixteen. He became a surveyor, was elected a burgess, and appointed a justice of the Fairfax County court. During the American Revolution, he was appointed commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the united colonies. He was elected the first president of the United States of America under the new constitution in 1789, and again in 1793.

Joseph Edward Willard, (1865-1924), was born in Washington, D. C. He practiced law, and was lieutenant governor of Virginia, 1902-1906.
