Re: Sarah MARTIN Davis abt 1840 ?

My pleasure. If you agree, I'll also send you a scan of Sarah and Brum's declaration of cohabitation (their marriage license, if you will). I'm afraid it's a bit blurred, but it is legible.
Also, you might want to get in touch with Daniel Mahar, who has a large quantity of archives on the Davis's and is very happy to share. You can find his e-mail on Afrigeneas.
I'm pretty sure there are deeds and other records in Surry. Unfortunately they are not online. Stokes deeds are however, at http://www.stokescorod.org/Opening.asp.
Susan and Abraham were still in the same house in 1900, when Abe was working in a tobacco factory. By 1910, Abraham had died, because a widowed Susan is on Needmore St. in Mt. Airy with the children. She was working as a cook in a hotel, probably where her 12-year old son Abraham Jr. was working as a waiter. Needmore (now Virginia) was the main black street in Mt Airy. A map of it in the 1920s shows Susan living next to the Zion Baptist Church (this is in a book called Around Surry County by Evelyn Scales Thompson, in the Black America Series). The book also has a picture (p.31) of Ada Stewart, who lived down the street. Interestingly, in 1920, another of Susan's neighbors was Mandy Golding, the widow of Harding Golding, part of my extended family.
Susan died on 26 December 1950 in Mt Airy. The informant said that her mother's name was Sarah Davis. I can attach the death certificate as well if you like. -- Gordon
