A horse named "Affrica" in a Virginia will
In this will one of the items is a horse named "Affrica". Wonder who named it. I hope the details provide hints to some of you searching for deeds, wills, and give insight as to what they included.
Brunswick Co. is just above NC border and includes Lawrenceville, home of St. Paul's College.
