Re: Kelso, VA

Hi,

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. KELSO VA Bedford County Northern Dist. 1860
R. N. KELSO VA Bedford County Northern Dist. 1860
THOMAS KELSO VA Bedford County Northern Dist. 1860
R. KELSO VA Bedford County S. Revinew Dist. 1860
ROBERT KELSO VA Bedford County S. Revinew Dist. 1860

R.N. could be Robert - you will have to look up the white family in reocords.

Hope this helps,

Denise
