Re: Tax & Property records from Albemarle Co. VA

: Hi Lloyd,

: 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,

: Lee

HI Lee: What is you great grandfathers name? Jefferson had the "Farm Books", where he supposedly recorded slave names and other particulars. Lloyd
