Massie Mills, Nelson County, VA is one of the counties of research for me. The Cabell Family were a major landowner who owned lots of slaves. Also, there are several slaves with the surname of Loving.
There is a book I've discovered a year ago, entitled, "Nelson County, Virginia Heritage Book, 1807-2000, Complied by: Nelson County, VA Heritage Book Commitee that is very helpful. Regretfully, I don't have a copy (its on my wish list, family) but I did extract certain information from it when I was researching in Salt Lake City. In the paragraph re: "The Concerned Members of Oak Hill Baptist Church, Headquarters, Washington,DC," one of the charter members was Henrietta Allen Morse. In fact, there is a black and white small picture of the group, and she's included. Henrietta Allen Morse, was the source of this historical aspects of the Concerned Members of Oak Hill Baptist Church. Oak Hill Baptist Church was organized in 1809, in Massie Mill, VA. Adrienne Gaines Jordan submitted an article for this book re: Oak Hill School where she noted black leaders in the district named, in part: Sallie Vaughn Smith (I hope this is one of my extended relatives), Effinger W. Gaines, Sr., Matthew Douglas Gaines, Othello R. Wilson, Maggie Gaines Coleman (1907-1974), Dorothy Coleman, Margaret Coleman, Adrienne Gaines Jordan, Henriettta Allen Morse, and Nancy Hudson Harris. This is the most wonderful book, it would make a great coffee table accessory - double used!
