thompson's of Fauquier county virginia
I dont know if anyone would have any information or not, but I thought that I would give it a try... I am looking to find out any information regarding a Henry Clay Thompson who was born in Fauquier county Virginia. He was born on 16 Aug. 1854. I have found him on many records as being listed as "Mulatto". His wife was Fannie W. Field(s) also listed as being "Mulatto" born on 30 july 1859 in Orange county Virginia. According to my friend who I am doing the research for, his cousin said that Henry and Fannie were married on 7 Oct. 1873 in Millville Culpeper Virginia. Henry's parents names were John Thompson and Inez (?, dont know what the maiden name was) Fannie's parents names were Wellford Field(s) and Ellen (maiden name unknown) I am trying to find out if there would of been any birth records for this time period, if they were born free or slaves, and if they were born slaves how to go about finding out who the slave owners were. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated!
