Biographical Information

George Rust, Jr., was born 4 January 1788 in Virginia to George Rust (1760-1850) and Elizabeth Rust (ca. 1766-1844). He lived for a while in Prince George's County, Maryland for a few years and was one of the defenders of Baltimore, Maryland, during the War of 1812. He moved to Loudoun County, Virginia, and represented that county in the House of Delegates from 1819 to 1823. Rust was elected brigadier general of the Virginia militia by the Virginia legislature in January 1824. During the 1828 presidential election, he was an elector for Andrew Jackson and John C. Calhoun. Rust served as superintendent of the United States Armory at Harper's Ferry, (West) Virginia, from 1830 to 1837. Rust was a planter and a businessman, owning part interest in a shoe and hat store in Baltimore from 1840 to 1845, and became a partner in a bank in Baltimore in 1856. Rust built "Rocklands" in Loudoun County, and then purchased "Exeter" in the same county. He and his nephew Albert Rust (ca. 1818-1870) also purchased the plantation "Indian Town" in Lancaster County, Virginia, in 1856. Rust married Maria Clagett Marlow (1790-1863) 8 November 1809 in Prince George's County, and they had nine children. Rust died 18 September 1857 in Baltimore, and was buried in Union Cemetery in Leesburg, Virginia.
