Re: Sarah GRESHAM gives birth to mulatto child VA

I also found this petition interesting and wondered what became of Sarah's children. It would appear that she kept them.
Here is Sarah living with her children:

1850 Census Not Stated, York Co., VA
Sarah Gresham 39 F W b. New Kent City, VA
Elizabeth Stuart 18 F Mul b. James City, VA
Wm Stuart 1 M Mul b. York Co., VA

1860 Census James City, Williamsburg, VA
Sally Gresham 53 F W b. Hanover Co., VA
Mat Ashby 29 M Mul Shoemaker b. York Co., VA cannot read or write
Elizabeth Steward 27 F Mul b. James City Co., VA cannot read or write**
Wm. H. Steward 10 M Mul b. Williamsburg, VA
Amanda Simpson 13 F B b. James City Co., VA

** In 1850 she wasn't marked as illiterate. This may simply have been the assumption of the enumerator.
