In Response To: Re: Henry County, Virginia ()
I have never seen any paperwork where there was a register. I have been researching in the county since 1988. I just came back this week from the Bassett Historical Center and did not find anything new. I learned there is someone researching those who had to fight during the Civil War. In 1988 the library in Richmond had loose papers which I paid to be copied to microfilm. It just says who has free papers or not and the names of all involved. The microfilm is available for all now. I did back in the day have a nice lady look for the cohabitation list that no one else had knowledge of. I saw her last week and once again she was of help with a project I am working on.
