In Response To: Southampton County, Va. ()
Thanks for the offer to do lookups.
How many FPOC registered from 1831-1832? As I'm examining the emigration of FPOC from Norfolk to Liberia, I'm also interested in tracking the people from the surrounding counties who migrated into the city prior to sailing for Liberia.
I know a large contingency of FPOC left Southampton in the wake of Nat Turner's Rebellion. I suspect your list will identify some of the people who made their way to Norfolk.
Are you incorporating these names into your book (or web site) or do you plan to publish them separately? The reason I ask is that I collect publications on FPOC in Virginia and would like to get a copy of your work if and when it becomes available.
