Re: Kelso, VA
In Response To: Re: Loudoun County VA slaves - transitions to free ()
Where were they in 1870? Since as slaves they more than likely would not have had a surname, or even if the did - wouldn't be listed by it.
What county in VA is most likely?
Slaveholders in VA surnamed Kelso in 1860 slave schedules seem to all be from one county:
Name State County Township Year
R. N. KELSO VA Bedford County Northern Dist. 1860
R.N. could be Robert - you will have to look up the white family in reocords.
Hope this helps,
