AfriGeneas Free Persons of Color Forum

Re: Southampton County, Va. Loose Papers

I'm in the process of researching my family history and I came across a message thread on AfriGeneas Free Persons of Color Forum from 2008. On this particular thread, you mentioned that Jon Fitch was writing a Thesis on Nat Turner's Rebellion and the involvement of the Artis Family. I'm a descendent of the Artis Family of Southampton County and I've been told via oral history that my family was related to Nat Turner and/or tied to the rebellion in some way. I was also told that my ancestors were free blacks during the 1800's and possibly 1700's as well. If you could provide the following I would greatly appreciate it:

1.) Jon Fitch's Thesis on Nat Turner's Rebellion
2.) Any additional information on the Artis Family of Southampton County, VA.

Thank you in advance for any assistance you can offer.
