I was surfing the Internet and came across this site. I grew up in Appomattox Virginia. Most of the names that people are inquiring about on this site are from the Appomattox area, I'm familiar with alot of the last names that are mentioned. "It's a small town"
Fergusons, Jennings, Meggisons, Davidsons, McCoys, Woodsons, Trents, Cox, Moses, Hubbards and many many more.
Please check Lynchburg, VA, Alot of the families moved out of Appomattox to a larger town. I also have a book written on the ancestors in the Appomattox area. Especially those with White, Black and Native American background.
Please don't let race stop your search. Most of the families in Appomattox are mixed or have ancestors of a different race than what they might have thought.
