In Response To: Re: Redman/Warrick of Loudoun Co., VA ()
I wasn't quoting a Free Black Register for Hardy Co., because there isn't one. The record I listed earlier where I found Abraham Warrick was a list of free Negroes and Mulattoes that was part of the personal property tax list (PPTL). There are no ages listed in the PPTL, however, depending upon the year, a man must have been at least either 21 or 16 to have been enumerated.
The first year I can find Abraham Warrick is the 1784 PPTL for Hampshire Co. He is enumerated in the district of Abrham Hite and judging from the other names in this district, he is living somewhere between Moorefield and the Trough (today's Hardy Co.). Also in this district is Edward Fiddler, another man I recognize as a free person of color. They are not identified as fpc in Hampshire or Hardy Co. until the 1801 PPTL when the separate lists begin for fpc at the end of the respective PPTL districts.
In 1783 Hampshire Co. PPTL there is a George Fidler living in or very near Romney. He is enumerated on the list of William Buffington and the men on the list are all people I recognize as living in and very near Romney.
As far as an age for Abraham Warrick, I think the best we can say from the PPTL is that he was at least 21 years old in 1784.
I have not studied the Warricks in particular in Hardy Co. I run across their names because they appear with some of the people I'm studying at the moment. Sorry I don't have more information than this to help you, but keep asking questions and I'll help if I can.
