The link listed above gives a index list of free and emancipated Blacks/Mulattoes in Southampton County between 1794-1832. You can order the microfilm from the Library of Virginia.

This is great! Thanks for the link. Do you know if the county maintained a similar list for 1832-1860s? I'm interested in Lydia Mingo, who was murdered in 1840 by Matthew Drake. Cherry Mingo, who appears to have been the child who survived the murder and identified the killer, was then raised by Hezekiah and Letitia Bradshaw. Lydia Mingo and her daughter were identified as free blacks in records of the event.
