You should also be aware that there was a further group of messages included on the thread, which she posted separately. You'll want to read them.

Also, while it is mentioned that the persons who registered supposedly were going to work in the Great Dismal Swamp, that may not be the case for all of them. Some of these names I have personally researched (not the Winburns) and they lived & died in Halifax County, and some, like the family of Bartley (actually, Bartlet) Hedgepeth, left the area and moved to Michigan.
