Burrel Hemphill, a slave in the household of Robert Hemphill during the Civil War, was reportedly tortured to death by Union troops for refusing to disclose the location of the family's silverware and other valuables. A monument erected in his honor reads: "In memory of Burrel Hemphill, Killed by Union soldiers February 1865. Although a slave, he gave his life rather than betray a trust. He was a member of Hopewell."
