Historian portrays Francis Fauquier

Fauquier County Public Library and the Fauquier Heritage Institute are hosting a lecture on Francis Fauquier (1703 – 1768), a Lieutenant Governor of Virginia Colony, at 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 16, at the John Barton Payne Building, Warrenton.

The lecture is being presented by “Living Historian” Dennis Loba. Francis Fauquier, a friend of Thomas Jefferson, served as Virginia's acting governor from 1758 until his death in 1768.

Mr. Loba, who has long been involved with reenactments nationally and locally, will present information about the lieutenant governor in authentic period clothing. During the Fauquier County’s 250th Anniversary Celebration parade, Mr. Loba introduced the honored guests, several members of the Fauquier family, to the parade audience.
