In Response To: FPOC VA MD 1800-1865 ()
Last names, Benson and Murrell, Morrell. Already have 1850, 1860-1880 on my ancestor Charles J Benson. Need info on his siblings: Benjamin, Joseph, Harriet and relative Amanda Butler. The census reports show born in Virginia but everything I found is residence in Maryland and Alabama. Charles married a Sophia or Sophie Murrell. I lose track of her between 1880-1900. Also, I can't find a birth or family, I just know she was related to Hopping Murrell of Alabama who was white.
