In Response To: Goodwyns. ()
Try Dinwiddie County, VA. I'm from Tidewater, but most Goodwyns/Goodwins in that area hail from more central Vigrginia near Richmond. Dinwiddie, my father's birthplace, was a "hotbed of Goodwyn-ness!" My family was mulatto, but appears to have been enslaved.
Encouraging you to fully research the African/Caucasion trail as thoroughly as the Indian trail. We have re-labeled our silent dead ancestors many times over the generations. So now we have to be careful to look for them several different ways.
