Re: Wingfields of Franklin, Henry County, VA

A couple of years ago a gentlemen by the name of John Harris extracted a listing of the African American Marriages that appeared in the marriage registers at the Henry County Courthouse (copies of this material is probably available at Bassett Public Library).
Henry Co. also had a cohabitation list, which Mr. Harris transcibed (which legalized those relationships that took place before emancipation) there are NO Wingfields listed on this list. But there were WINGFIELD marriages after that time period
