I am familiar with your surnames since some of them remained in Tazewell Co. VA. If you need help, the nice folks at the Tazewell County Historical Society would be glad to assist you in to submitting a narrative about your connections. One photo and 500 words are FREE! It's a good deal and I am taking advantage of it, too.

Although not all are connected withTazewell County VA, my ancestors are: Ackers, Anderson, Barrett, Bowman, Brewster, Harless, Harris, Hash, Lawrence, Lockhart, Nelson, Noell, ,Payton, Phipps, Porter, Rasnick/Rasnake, Richardson, Rose, Rutherford, and Sizemore.

-----------------------ORIGINAL MESSAGE-----------------------------
Thank you so much for this information. My Tazewell ancestors surnames are: John Sansom, John Stafford, Elijah Peters, William Davidson, William White, and Lester. The Stafford, Sansom and Davidson moved on to the western frontier of Kentucky around the time of the Revolutionary War. It took me a decade to find them, they are my maternal grandfather's family.

Melungeon hugs,
