About meWilliam Triplett (1732-1802), Virginia landholder and friend to George Washington. A resident of Truro Parish, Fairfax County, VA, Triplett served as a Truro vestryman (1776-1785) and church warden (1777-1778), and was an original pew holder in the Pohick church.

Triplett married Sarah Massey, and the pair had at least four children.

William and his brother Thomas were both friends and neighbors of George Washington, and apparently often socialized at Mt. Vernon.

About my libraryTriplett's small library is listed in the inventory of his estate (PDF), taken 19 March 1803 and recorded 21 March 1803. His entire estate was valued at $8,664.38.
