In Response To: Re: Cohabitation Records, Henry Cnty, Virginia ()
The cohabitation list was generated in 1866, after the Civil War. It records and legitimizes those relationships that began prior to emancipation. (see below for details of the information provided in the register).
I need a little bit more information besides the 2 first names you listed? What county were these women living in in 1870?. What surname are you researching?
"The following information is taken from the Register of Persons of Henry County VA, Cohabitating Together as Husband and Wife on 27th of February 1866. This information was transcribed by John Harris. I believe the original is in the Courthouse in Henry."
Name of Husband, Wife and Children
