AYWalton: that sounds like an interesting story to talk about. or to obtain more details about. free why do you have Cherokee on the brain?
daviss: whole lotta shaking (multitasking) going on lol
freeaainnc: I was just answering a question for a patron who wanted to know about the Henderson Rolls and how they could see them

daviss: vkn can you send me the email addy for your friend the Spelman guru?
vkn: yassum who is the person you are seeking daviss
virginia: freeaainc what kind of work do you do.
daviss: I am looking for Elizabeth Perry Cannon
freeaainnc: virginia I am the genealogy reference librarian at the state library or north carolina
vkn: I think we found a very limited amount of info daviss like name in the directory
virginia: Oh. Thought it may have been something like that.
freeaainnc: that is why I was asking if you lived in NC because our library loans material to other NC libraries, but not out of state lol
daviss: ok thx vkn
freeaainnc: course that doesn't matter since you weren't looking for the baker roll lol
vkn: but not to trust my memory daviss send me the query again
Selma: Have you had much luck with your Essex County research virginia?
vkn: funny free
virginia: No, Selma. Hardly any. They say it's easy researching there. But I haven't fount that out. But, freeaainc, if I were you would have had the answer.
daviss: so your link is to George @ virginia
freeaainnc: weird, I couldn't type
virginia: daviss, I don't know. Just don't think so.
daviss: oh ok
freeaainnc: true Virginia, I would
virginia: Going to try that link though daviss. Maybe I'm searching and thinking wrong.
alt: are you working 'back' to Washington, or try to hook into him and work forward virginia?
Selma: What are you looking for in Essex virginia..you have this person or family back to 1870?
virginia: I was trying to work back, but stuck at ggrandmother born in 1838. Can't get any further.
vkn: yall be good
alt: okay, so you have worked back to 1838
Selma: Do you find her in 1870?
virginia: No, Selma. Can only find them in 1880. Nothing before or since. No.
Selma: What are the names in 1880..
virginia: Kittie Washington with her children George, Jacob Julia Warner and Allen. I can find some of her children since then, but nothing from 1870.
alt: she would have been 42 y/o in 1880, perhaps there are a couple of name changes between 1838 & 1880.
freeaainnc: I need to go. bye all
virginia: orry. Except who I may think to be Warner living in the household of a Theodore Carter.
AYWalton: well I had better run, folks. Have a great day.
alt: maybe a search for all AA Kittie's or (C)Katherine born ca 1840 in Essex and/or neighboring counties couls give some information.
virginia: Someopne suggested a Kitty Moody. But I am having a hard time reconciling that. I do find her under the name of Kittie Robinson listed in family search under her childrens marriage records. I've tried that too alt.
alt: okay virginia
Selma: I do see Warner in 1870
daviss: me too servant right selma
virginia: And near him is an Alfred Brown who I understand to be my grandfather Allens father. At least that was what I was taught and is on my grandfathers death cert.
alt: gotta run y'all take care.
Selma: I see the Kitty Moody in 1870...are the children Julia, Jacob and john the same names that appear in 1880?
virginia: They said his father insisted on him having his last name. Hence my maiden name-Brown. Selma Julia and Jacob are two names but no John.
daviss: john brown is the father
virginia: No, Alfred Brown is supposed to be my grandfathers' father. He's on the same census with Warner.
Selma: So we have a Kittie Moody in 1870..with 3 children Julia, Jacob and John Warner in 1870 a servant in another household In 1880 we have Kitty Washington with george, warner, Julia, and Jacob?
virginia: Yes, but Alfred is in the same area with another family. Yes, Selma and Allen
Selma: Julia, Warner and George would have been bornin slavery
virginia: Yes. Allen and Jacob wouldn't. Jacob and Julia listed a Chas Washington who died in slavery as their father. And a Kittie Robinson as their mother on family search. One problem is that they have Allen listed as being born in 1869 and that's one of the problem years for birth records.
Selma: What year do you think he was born
virginia: He said 1875.
Selma: So you have 3 possible surnames for Kitty.. Moody, Robinson, and Washington?
Selma: Who has Allen listed as being born in 1869?
virginia: The census lists him as Allen Washington.
daviss: george is listed as a year old in 1870 with alfred Brown
virginia: The census has him listed as being born in 1869. I kept looking at that George Washington in 1870. I think it may be the wrong one.
Selma: Just because of 1 year off...
virginia: From the census it has George listed as being born in 1859.
Selma: On what record does Allen say he was born in 1875?
virginia: And George Was listed as being the oldest of Kittie's children. In subsequent censuses it has him listed as being born in 1874 or 1875. Also he was in the old mans drafr for ww II in pennsylvania where he had moved to. Census records in Phila pa for 1920 and 1930.
Selma: Ok Virginia..will have to look at them later.. I have to run..have a good day
virginia: Thank you.
Selma: We will figure this out.. right daviss.. LOL
virginia: Hope so. Thanks for your help.
daviss: yep lol
virginia: Thanks daviss.
daviss: chat with you later selma
virginia: So long.
