Re: Bound Contract Records
In Response To: Bound Contract Records ()
Well, I never did find a indentured contract, but did find, in another county names of an entire family with childrens names, some with contracts and some as indentured. The name Mary is one of the names as indentured. The last name is the same that I was looking for, but as I stated earlier, it is in another county. The slaveowners name is R.H. Steptoe instead of J.R. Steptoe.I looked through the census and found no Steptoe's living in this area. The first page that starts this series is on another county of Virginia, Wythe. My family is in Franklin and moved to Roanoke. I'm wondering if this is the same young girl that I am searching for. In the 1910 census, another young girl with the same surname is staying with my 3rd greatgrandparents (Sandy & Mary Saunders) as 'niece', so don't know the connection between the two nieces, could be sisters or cousins.
