The grave of Robert Erskine is one of about a dozen scattered near a small pond at Ringwood Manor. The Manor was once the home to one of the largest iron making companies in the region. During the American Revolution, Robert Erskine managed the plantations. He eventually became the principal mapmaker for General Washington, who visited the estate no less then 5 different times. Erskine died in 1780 and is buried near the pond where he lived. There are reports of ghost activity near the grave, and reportedly the bricks in the grave marker keep “jumping out”.
