Wow! I think you may have knocked down one of my brick walls.
My grandfather and his family were all born in Albemarle. His grandfather was a slave at Monticello (either a stone mason or a carpenter) There is a family story that my great grandfather sold 400 acres in Albemarle to send my grandfather to Law School. I found a sale, with the right name and time period, but the family member was in Ohio, which did not fit into the family story.
Last week, when I mentioned this to an elderly cousin she told me that my great grandfather went visiting to Ohio, but no one remembers why or who he went to see. Your information gives me a place to look and see if there is a connection, Thank you so much!
Do you know anything else about Albemarle, specifically, White Hall, Free Union or Crozett?
Thank you again,
