Birthplace

 

Birthplace: Byfield aka Poplar Grove (site marker), Dover, DE

Visited: 7/31/2021

Log Excerpt: "... we drove a bit more near Dover AFB for a spot near the runways and a historical sign. It marks the area for Rodney’s family farm “Byfield”. He was born there, lived there as a child, owned it as an adult, and is likely buried there, according to historians."
