In Response To: Slaveowners in Nelson County,VA ()
I may be very late entering this convo but i have just been workin on my family tree for 3months now and have ran into deadends as it get to the 1860 slave schedules im not sure how it works..I am looking for my gggggmother Josephine Coleman and her mother Mollie Coleman? Josephines daughter Ardelia Coleman married a man named Massie Napper which is now the same family of the Napiers here in Nelson and Amherst County..I live here Nelson/Amherst and have asked my older relatives about Josephine and why she and her brother Lot and sister Susan where Mulattos..they said something about being a cherokee and black mix..If any one gets this message please help if you can. Seems as if we all share a common ancestor.
