Biographical Information

A native Virginian, Ann Whitehead Thomas became a resident of Round Hill in 1968, soon after her 1961 marriage to H. Rogers Thomas (11 Oct 1911-28 Feb 2001). Mrs. Thomas graduated from Mary Baldwin College, Staunton. She served on the first Thomas Balch Library Advisory Board and on a committee for Winchester Handley Library, and is also a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. In 1998 she received a Loudoun History Award for her work in preserving Loudoun County's heritage.

Mrs. Thomas is the daughter of Robert Whitehead (21 Sep 1897-8 Jun 1960) and Sallie Carter Whitehead (22 Jul 1905-Oct 1984), mother of Elizabeth Thomas Wallace, and grandmother to John Thomas Wallace, Sarah Elizabeth Wallace, and Robert David Wallace.
