In Response To: Freedmen/Women ~ Graduate research ()
I have found Letty and Mahala again in the 1840 Census of Rappahannock COunty, VA (which was annexed from Culpeper in 1833). Between the three of them and another sister (I guess) Lucy, they had 23 family members in 1840. By that time, I believe Thomas was dead. I don't know his relationship to the women, just that there were in the same household in 1813 and have the same surname, I believe he was their father, but have not uncovered any proof. I am descended from Lucy. I have found court records where Lucy went to court in the 1830s to have indentureships rescinded for three of her sons whom she felt were being mistreated and she won!!
Good luck on your research.
