Hi Pat! Thanks so much for responding! Yes that 1880 Census really confused me too! My daughter is the great-grand daughter of Clifford Dennis. (Willie L.'s son) He is 91 now and it's hard getting information! I had guessed that maybe the slave owner Newton T. Dennis could have been Willie L.'s grandfather but didn't have anything that could back it up. Searching through the census I came upon John Peyton and Harriet Terrell and figured out they had Joseph, Lib's father. I just hate being stuck not completing knowing for sure about Newton R.'s father. Newton T. Dennis was William Dennis's son. William died the same year Newton R. was born so I figured it had to be one of his grandchildren. I just hate not knowing! I saw the name Fletcher but couldn't connect the Fletcher's with the Dennis's but I'm assuming it was through marriage. Now I know it was Lucie! (Thanks for that!) There is a Gail on this forum that had the names of slaves and their slave owners and hoped I would find something but haven't heard back from her. But now I'm thinking maybe they were free? What do you think?
