I would really appreciate any leads.
Your post inspired me to contact the miracle worker, Donna, from the Rappahannock Historical Society.She found out so much info on the CLARK side of the family. Today a light bulb went off and I called her about the CHINN slave holder. I always make a nice donation to the Society for all her work. I would highly recommend her to anyone searching in Rappahannock.
She was as usual amazing! She said that she would look up the records at the court house for me. She said there were 4/5 spellings of CHINN. ..Chum,Chun,Chin so I will check that angle. She is also going to look up the land records for the Chinn's. She reminded me that after the Civil War, the freed slaves that had skills in that area were paid for their skills. The CLARK's were blacksmiths. Now I am hopefully going to find out about the Chinns.
From the 1880 Census:
Thanks again for inspiring me.
