Surnames: Chinn, Fletcher, Grimes
looking for a needle in a haystack here...my grandmother, Lorena Fletcher, told me stories of the Battle of Bull Run, Manassass, VA that were related to her by her grandmother who reportedly lived in the Chinn household on Chinn's ridge. the remains of this house are currently located within the confines of the Manassass Battlefield Park. her paternal grandmother's first name was Susan. her maternal grandmother's married surname was Grimes. have never been able to find any other info on these two women. while I am white, it would not be beyond the realm of possibility that an ancestor married someone of African or mixed racial decent. any of this information spark a memory with your information, i would appreciate knowing. at least I hope for a new direction to focus my research.
thanks
