Monique and I have something in common. Our ancestors hail from the same county, Jefferson County, Virginia, and as of June 20, 1863, West Virginia. Hers were enslaved and my were free, at least two of the known families. We wonder if they knew each other, asking if there were there any encounters? Monique and family went to Jefferson County this pass weekend and visited the plantation where her ancestors were enslaved by one of George Washington’s family members. She met some great local historians. Check out her blog and meet Jasper Thompson. Thanks Monique!
