On this day in Arlington history: March 26, 1779: George Minor is awarded a land grant. Minor Hill: Named for its original property owner (George Minor, born in 1753), it will be used by both the Union and Confederate armies for surveillance at different times during the Civil War. The Minor homestead was just over the county line in McLean; it was occupied by direct descendants of George Minor well into the second half of the 20th century. George married twice first to Ann Adams, (1752-1786) daughter of Colonel William Adams of "Church Hill," and after her death to Mildred Heale, daughter of Colonel George Heale. Colonel Minor served in the Fairfax County Militia and was a Justice of Fairfax County in 1784. He was a Trustee of South Haven (Rosslyn) in 1798. Minor gave the land for Fairfax Chapel, the first Methodist Episcopal Church in the area. This George Minor acquired a 264 acre tract (NN-I-342), a ninety-six acre tract (NN-I-384) and a twelve acre tract of land (T-34-236) in what is now Arlington County in 1788. His children with Ann included Captain George Minor (1777-1861) who commanded a Regiment of Militia during the War of 1812 in the defense of Washington and Baltimore.
