Born in Scotland in 1728, William Fleming came to Virginia in 1751, and practiced medicine in Staunton before moving with his wife, Nancy Christian Fleming, to Belmont here on Tinker Creek in 1768. Fleming led Botetourt County militiamen and was wounded at the Battle of Point Pleasant in 1774. He served as acting governor of Virginia in 1781 and a delegate to the Virginia Constitutional Convention in 1788. After the Revolutionary War, he practiced medicine throughout the Roanoke Valley. He died in 1795 and is buried beside his wife on a hill just east of here.
