: Is not clear if the other slaves were sold - you will have to look
I am now hitting my self in the head - I posted this months ago - never realizing that the "William" listed is probably William TATE - husband of my great-grandmother's sister. Also listed are his brother Nelson, Fenton and sister Sarah. I'm curious about who Elijah is - since Fenton named one of his sons Elijah - perhaps I've missed one of the sons.
I now plan to take my advice to Diane - and apply it myself next week - will be looking very closely at all records pertaining to the white BEAVERS family in Loudoun - this may be the breakthrough I needed to find my great great grandmother PAYNE.
