Paul HEINEGG> not sure what you mean. Perhaps it is better if you give an example.
Example ... here is your 1801 list for VA,Hardy-Co at http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/Hardy.htm
1801 "List of Free Negroes & molattors in the Western District" [frame 348].
So in this example I am wondering if George & Sampson & Rachel have a surname. On the census we see a household name is often not repeated for every family member & I am wondering if this is what happened here ... which could make Rachel a REDMAN ?
Also for the last one "Henry Black", does black refer to his race or his surname ?
Thanks so much for all your hard work
