In Response To: Re: Free Black Registers Albemarle County, VA ()
I used the "Go to database" feature and typed in just the word or letters "1829" and the results came back with a sundry of names.
I am particularly interested John 25 registered on 4 March 1828, Thomas 23 registered 4 March 1828, Fountain 27 registered 4 March 1828, Henderson 30 registered 7 January 1828 and Michael 23 registered 7 January, 1828. So does it mean John, Fountain and Thomas are closely related and Henderson and Michael are closely related according to this list? Are all these men closely related?
I do however have a document with these gentlemen all appearing on the same day. Perhaps I should reread the document to make double sure of the January 1828 date.
