George Washington Papers

[Diary entry: 8 September 1770]

8. A Fishing along towards Sheridine Point. Dined upon the Point.

Sheridine Point (now called Sheridan Point) is on the Potomac about a mile above the mouth of Little Hunting Creek. Part of GW’s Clifton’s Neck property, it was apparently so named because it was part of the plantation that John Sheridine, Sr., was renting from GW. The point was at this time the site of a fishing landing.
