McPhails of South Boston, VA
I'm searching for any connections to the Black/African American McPhail or Lacy families of South Boston, Virginia including the old Banister area, the city of Halifax. Ancestors of these families yet live in the area. I am interest, in particular, of Bettie (Lacy) McPhail (Annie Bettie), born about 1862 to Armstead and Mary Lacy, who were both slaves in that area. I lost track of Bettie after the 1920 Census, but am told she lived well beyond that time. Any info will be appreciated; history, burial place, residence, etc. Thanks.
