Here's what I have so far on Priscilla/Sarah. I'll begin with Priscilla.
I began with 1880 census of Hempstead Co AR where she is listed with daughter Margaret (Mag, Maggie) Williams & Son-in-Law Jerry. 1870 I have Priscilla at age 49, colored in Leesburg, Loudoun with Sarah,Mulatto,age 73. 1860 census with the following people: Elizabeth Jones -19, Jesse Jones- 17, and Victoria Jones 13. I don't know if these are Priscilla children or relatives.
I didn't find her again under Jones until 1810 census, however; her abt: has been previously listed as 1820 (+/-). My grandmother Helen who is 92 is still living. She indicates that Margaret's father name was (Doc) Simmons. I don't know if (Doc) is a nickname or what. Supposedly he was Caucasian and a Doctor in Hope AR. I haven't verified nor disputed this info. At some point in time Priscilla did migrate to AR.
My questions are:
I sent my profile to join the Afrigenas Free People of Color Forum to Valencia late last night. I had a wonderful conversation with her. I'm so excited that you have contacted me. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thank-you for your response.
