I am researching the Indian lineage of our family line. We do not have much information.
1930 Halifax Co., Va Census - ED24 Roanoke Mag. Dist; 4 April, p.59A,
Next door at 11, 15:
Both Bell and Julia are widowed (W'd); Bell was marr'd at 19 yrs old and Julia marr'd at 15 yrs old.
In 1930, Paul and Henrietta have been married about 5 years, Henrietta being married at 27 yrs old. Grant and Swanee would then be the children of Paul and Henrietta - the older children's mother is Joanna, per the 1920 census.
1920 Halifax Co., Va Census; ED98 Roanoke; 24 March; p.149A., at 68, --
1910 Halifax Co., Va Census; ED70 Roanoke Mag.Dist; 16 April, p.87B,
Looks like Claude and Clive were twins.
three doors further, at 31, 32:
Between the 1880s and 1920s especially, anyone not obviously 'white' usually was listed as 'black' or 'negro' on census records, particularly in the south - census takers weren't anthropologists - so this is such a very subjective thing that you can't count on it being accurate.
The family states that Paul H Williams was originally a slave belonging to the Carringtons in Charlotte, VA and carried that name until he moved to Clover and worked for a man named Allen Williams, thus the Williams name.
His wife Julia Anne was also a slave of the same Carrington as Paul. She claimed to be Carrington's daughter, refusing to be acknowledged as a Williams prior to marriage. No one remembers the first name of the Carrington that owned the plantation. Through my research I have learned there were many Carringtons in Virginia and am having a hard time figuring out which one it could be.
I see the census recorded Paul H as Black. The family believes that Paul had Irish/Indian blood as well. It was always the explanation for the fair skin, occasional straight hair, green eyes and red hair in the family.
It is said that Julia was part Indian as well. Maybe from the Carrington side? But Blackfoot continues to be mentioned and it is said to come from Julia's side of the family.
Below are additional names of Paul and Julia's children.
Census record identification of race is very subjective and therefore "uncertain" at best.
In 1870 Halifax Co., Roanoke Twp, p.659A, Paul H., 21, and Julia Williams, 22, with daughter Susan, 2, lived next door to Rebecca Williams, 19, and the next house was Archer Williams, 31, and wife Cornelia, 25.
