Biographical or historical data
An act of the General Assembly passed May 13, 1852, authorized incorporation of the Marysville Plank Road Company, to construct a road from Charlotte Courthouse to the Richmond and Danville Railroad, at some point between Keysville and Overby's Store in Charlotte County; the Company was authorized to continue the road from Charlotte Courthouse to some point on Cub Creek. March 8, 1853, state subscription was authorized at $3 of every $2 of private subscriptions, of the original $25,000 capital stock. February 28, 1854, the Company was authorized to extend the road to some point in Campbell County, with one or more lateral branches not to exceed ten miles in length, and stock was increased to $35,000. March 21, 1860, the Company was permitted to lay iron rails on the track, and change the name to the Marysville Rail Road Company. A further change was permission to extend the road from the terminus at Charlotte Courthouse to any point of the Staunton River, thus eliminating the route into Campbell County.
