In Response To: Re: Wright, Flippo, Taliaferro: Caroline Co., VA ()
Slaveholder Albert R. Flippo and African-American Taliaferro/Tolliver family
Partial list of African Americans held in bondage by Albert R. Flippo of Caroline County, Virginia in 1850. Albert Flippo (wife Susan T. Flippo) was a farmer and minister. This list is based on my speculative interpretation of census information in Ancestry, Heritage Quest, and Family Search databases as well as Freedmanís Bureau documents posted by Central Rappahannock Heritage Center. Check these sources in case Iíve made errors.

Patsy Williams Taliaferro is a daughter of Letty Hart (b. circa 1800 in VA). Walker Taliaferro Sr. is Patsy's husband. According to 1866 Freedman's Bureau record, "A. Flippo" was "last owner" of Patsy and several of her children. Her husband Walker's "last owner" was Horace Wright of Caroline County; but Walker's recorded age in 1866 was 52, making him a possible match for the 37-year-old black male in the list above. Walker and Patsy were counted in 1870 census. Patsy Taliaferro and Letty Hart were still living in Caroline County, VA in 1900. At least one grandchild of Patsy Williams Taliaferro and Walker Taliaferro Sr is still living in 2006.
