Re: William Lewis and Sally (sarah) Harcum

Hi,

If you don't see them listed in the 1860 or 1850 census - they were more than likely slaves.

I checked slave schedules for Northumberland co VA - and there are Harcum and Lewis slaveholders. Your first step would be to look at the slave schedules and find any slaves that match the ages of your folks - starting with the surnames you have. Then identify the slaveholding families and begin to search for their family records.

There is another researcher looking for Cockrill/Harcum - see link below, and check Afrigeneas surnames database:
