In Response To: Re: Emancipation in Mecklenburg VA ()
Congratulations on your findings at LVA.
Oh, Oh...... In my family lines I have a William F. Adams of Champaign & Shelby counties in Ohio that I've lost track of from April 1879.
From the marriage records for Hardin County, Ohio I find a "Colored Couple", William F. Adams & Emma Burnett, being married in Hardin County, Ohio on 22 Oct 1879.
Name: Wm.F. Adams
My William F. Adams was born August 1853 in Urbana, Ohio. He was 'divorced' from Lavinia (Allen) Adams in May 1879 in Shelby County,Ohio. Hardin, Shelby & Champaign are nearby counties in Ohio that had sizable FPOC communities during the early to mid 1800's.
Seems possible that we may have common collateral relatives thru these Adams & Burnett families.
