Jones, Byrd, Jenkins, Blizzard, Bowman, Charity,
On "The Generations Project" on BYUTV, Roi Maufas who was from LA but displaced because of Katrina. He now lives in UT and researched his family from Surry Co., VA. Some of the surnames mentioned were Byrd, Jones, Jenkins, Bowman and Blizzard. An Ancestral chart was shown when he met family at the Surry Co. Historical Society and Charity was also one of the names mentioned. His family were FPOC. He then went to Norfolk State Univ. Library where he found information on his Bowman family. The show will air again later this week, but I think there may be some info on the BYUTV webpage. Oh, his father's name was Roy Bowman, it think and he was probably born in the 1940s.
