Caroline Co., VA: Family of slaveholder Albert R. Flippo

I found posted on the internet the 1860 will of William E. Flippo, husband of Rachel Terrell Burruss, the daughter of Thomas Burruss and Nelly Bibb Burruss. It calls for a division of property among heirs, but doesn't specifically mention slaves. Albert R. Flippo and Joseph A. Flippo are identified in this will as nephews of William E. Flippo.

Albert R. Flippo married Susan Burruss/Burrus/Burris. According to published histories of Caroline County, they were childless; but they raised Mrs. Flippo's niece, Miss "Sammie" Williams, a school teacher in Caroline County, VA.
