[VA] Toliver or Taliaferro Plantation
I am looking for information on the Plantation owned by either of these family members. I have a g g aunt in which her obit stated she was born a slave in the yr 1827 on Maj Taliaferro Plantation and her name was only stated as Elizabeth R. ?.It also stated she had married a Bryson Smith first but not if it was in Va or Pa. She came into Pa (around the age of 15-18yrs of age) and married into my family and died in 1909. In all papers I found on her here in Pa, none state a mother's/father's name. Nor what part of Va she came from. Is there a way anyone can help me dig deeper into where she actually came from in Va. I know that she resided with a Rev. John Fiddler listed as mulatto who came from the Va area also along with many others. Any help would be appreciated.
