In Response To: Re: Goings of Albemarle County, Va. ()
We only know that some of the men registered in January and that some registered a few months later. Usually, members of the same family registered together. It is quite possible that they were brothers or cousins all working on the same farm or in the same area. Also, it would seem to make sense that if they had the same Going name and were living in the same county, they were probably closely related.
