BLAND slaves; Chesterfield Co, VA,pre-1887.
Researching specifically, Edward Osbern BLAND, Sr., Oct 1860/61, Manchester, Chesterfield, VA - 22 Jan 1921, Clinton, Vermillion, IN). This is my first attempt at researching VA slaves. Edward's death certificate says his father's name is Beverly Bland; mother unknown; informant, wife, Emma Bland. Have records for Edward post 1887. Unable to verify his father's name, biological and extended family, pre-1887. Any and all assistance would be very much appreciated. Thank you!
