Rachel Hill was in the home of Robert Phelps, not Felton in Wythe county Va..
In the Richardson family, my grandfather was John Richardson born 1873 in Martinsville Va. He is in 1900 and 1910 census of Forsyth county and married to Alice Turner, both designated as mulatto. The marriage license has that his parents were Jim Richardson and Mary Martin, but they are nowhere to be found in ANY census. Yet another side of my family declared to be of Native American descent, but I never put much stake in these claims. My father's 90 year old mother swears that my my gr grandmother Sallie Richardson had an uncle who would visit from some reservation from time to time. The family Bible is also heavy with the name "Willis" Henry to be exact.
