Wiiliam Henry Brisby of New Kent County, Virginia was born free in 1831. He was the son of Roger Lewis and Miranda Brisby, a Pamunkey Indian, according to the Dictionary of Virgina Biography. ed. John T. Kneebone, 1998, pp. Vol 2, pp. 270-272. I am seeking information on Roger Lewis, his father, who was free in New Kent County when he bought land there as early as 1827. I am seeking information
on Roger Lewis. Was he born a slave? If so, when was he manumitted? Any information on Lewis will be deeply appreciated.
