Thank you so very, very much for your message. Gary Williams in Sussex County told me I needed to go to courthouse in Emporia, VA, and search. I think that's Greensville County. Do you have your family tree on the Internet? How are you connected to the Prince family? Blessings, Kim Owen

No relations. I don't know if you are in the area, but there is a high possiblity that the records are no longer in the county courthouse, but up in Richmond Va at the archives building. I have been finding where too often the county courthouse is overflowing with old records, and have them shipped up to Richmond.
Might want to call first and see if there are records in the courthouse.
