Re: Hargraves, Surry Co., Viriginia

My name is Eric Betts. I am from South Boston Virginia Halifax County
I have recently just begun to uncover more information on the history of Betts. I met a lady by accident in Cleveland in 1993, who was doing a geneological search. I told her I was a Betts from Virginia, and she was thankful to meet me, for she had also come from Betts in Virginia from slavery times. She was the first one to tell me about sussex county and how the slaves were freed after the death of a slaveowner. Some migrated to Ohio, and some stayed in virginia. My family of Betts ended up in South Boston, VA, probably due the industrial boom in that time. The information you have picked up on here is wonderful, and insightful.

Thank you
