Surnames: Gordon
Hoping to find information regarding James and Sarah Gordon who lived in Amherst County during the 1930-1950s and probably even before then. They had two children, boy and girl named after each of them. They were an African American family. James Sr. and his daughter were killed during an armed robbery in the mid 1950s. His wife died of diabetes (we have been told) a few years earlier, leaving the son James Jr. an orphan.

Hi, While I was at the courthouse today I took a look at the marriage records, unfortunately the only James Gordon I found was a James David Gordon who married a Stella Smith in 1944. You may want to try some of the surrounding areas like Nelson Co or Lynchburg for a marriage record. Midge Elliott
