In Response To: Re: SLAVE names RAPPAHANNOCK VA! ()
Hi there! I am so thankful I've come across your thread! I have been looking for weeks for the surname Dennis in Rappahanock County VA. I have all of the census info but it only goes back to 1870. I have actually two names if you don't mind looking up for me. The first is I'm looking for the father of Newton R. Dennis (mulatto) born 1864. On the 1920 census he has that his father and mother were born in Virginia but I can't find ANY information on them. Also his daughter in law, Lib Peyton, who I believe was Harriet Terrell and John Peyton's grand-daughter? Her father was Joseph Peyton. (White and slave owner?) I've found a few census where they are all living together. I'm not sure if this information is correct but you might be able to help I hope!
Thanks so much!
