Re: Adolphus Augustus, from Va
In Response To: Adolphus Augustus, from Va ()
What was your ancestor's approximate date of birth?
I know of an Augustus family from the Norfolk area. A famous physician in the Civil War, Alexander Augustus was born around 1819. His mother, Betsy Dyson, was originally from Richmond. Alexander had a brother named Ceasar, but I'm not certain that it is the same Ceasar you identified.
There was alsoa woman/girl named I think, Mary Augustus who escaped from Norfolk via the Underground Railroad. However, I'm not sure what name she used when she settled in Massachusetts.
