In Response To: Re: Hargraves, Surry Co., Viriginia ()
Yes Nann is in Surry County, VA.......this information was taken from the Surry County VA Free Negro Register. However, she does not appear with the surname "Hargrave" or any surname for that matter, just NANN or NANCY. Many of the registrants in the early part of the register are not recorded with surnames.
The first black person to appear in the register with the surname HARGRAVE is:
#159 TOMAS alias THOMAS HARGRAVE a negro man of dark complexion short hair, large mouth with prominent lips, aged about 24 years, a little bow leged, is 5'1 3/4 high who was emancipated by Anselm Hargrave Jr. by his deed of manumission - Is registered and numbered one hundred and fifty nine this 25th day of Aug. 1812 Pursuant to law. Renewed April 24th 1817.
