Re: Nelson County VA plantations

Im new to this site so please have patience with me. I did some research on my uncles family tree to see if hes related to me via blood. He married my great aunt. And its starting to seem like thats the case. Anyway, his ancestor is Shaver Vaughan and obviously Shaver's mother is Frances Vaughan. I was able to find two marriage certs that may interest all of you and maybe you can make some sense out of them. If I ever get the time, I will visit the Nelson county court and get even more information about this family that everyone is soooo interested about.
