Re: Nelson County VA plantations

In Response To: Re: Nelson County VA plantations (Derek Nicholas) That is notable, and thank you for your response; however, the Frances that I mentioned was born around 1817 and had children by the name of Mosura (Missouri), William, Columbus, Shaffer (various spellings), James, Thomas. I am of Shaffer's lineage.
Here are the children of Shafer and Sallie Smith who were married in 1887.

1. Perry Randolph Vaughn born 1888 died 1960, married Maria Smith
2. Minnie Vaughn born 1890
3. Walton born 1892 died 1982 married Alicia
4. Maggie born 1894
5. Ida born 1896
6. Celestine born 1898
Now for the good stuff.
One of the major problems with slavery which prevents African American descendants from being able to trace their ancestors, is the "selling of slaves".

The slaves that were sold off, inherited the the owners children, or traded to friends and associates,normally show residing with another family, and unattached to thier kin. So making a family connection to thier blood realatives is a painstaking, almost impossible task.

For this type of research requires total dedication and drive, as to NEVER GIVE UP!

So, this Missouri Vaughn born in 1827 was sold to Dr. E.V. Carter (according to William Massie's will). And she married or was breeded with Albert "slave of E.V. Carter" Hyeton born 1825.

Now, according to your age ranges mentioned above, this Missouri would be to old to be Frankie's daughter. She could have been Frankie's sister, and Frankie may have named her daughter after her sister.

But speculation isn't my thing.. I only deal in documented facts.

I'll see what I can dig up
