TOWNSEND~Elijah & Tabitha How FPOC

Greetings Denise and All

I am looking at the Subject family, residents of Accomack county Virginia, with a goal of determing how they became free and by whose hand or deed. A second goal is to determine if he might possibly be related to one Deanna Townsend born VA 1790{ on whom we have considerable findings, post emancipation) and her two children Jane born 1810 VA and Boston born 1820 VA. The latter three are buried in Madison County Florida

I am including something of a summary of census findings on Elijah and his family. There is more ...Will get it all posted eventually.
