Once upon a time, according to local legend, in the midst of the Civil War a young Confederate soldier named T.R. Covington was on the run from Union troops.  He had just run out of rations when he reached the flowery fields of Rose Hill.  As he approached the property, Mary Jane Ashby, the lovely daughter of Lomax Ashby, was carrying a basket of freshly baked goods from the kitchen to the main house of the property.  T.R. politely asked her if she would be willing to reprovision him for his journey.  She must have cut a pretty figure while she prepared ham biscuits, because it was more than gratitude that made him promise that he would come back and marry her when the war was over.  Despite the harsh conditions and dangers of the war, T.R.  survived and did exactly as he promised.
