Re: Pagee/Pegee Family
In Response To: Pagee/Pegee Family ()
It is a very, very interesting case for me, for it probably involves my family. Six children of Nancy/Nanny are named in the microfilm that I received from the LVA, but she supposedly had eight children. The 1815 marriage record of my third great grand-parents, Joshua Hill and Mary (Polly) Pegee list Mary as "daughter of Nancy." The book Free Negroes Registered in the Courthouse Botetourt County, Virginia lists "Polly Pegee" as having been freed in Bedford Cty. She and Daniel Pegee, who is named in the case, registered at the same time.
