Bottoms Family Genealogy Forum
I may not have made myself clear in my first posting. I gave my information in hopes that it would lead the persons looking for the Bottoms surname to the Henrico County, Va. location to help in their search. Why didn't the daughters with the Bottoms surname go by the name of White since Tarpley White called them his daughters? Because they were his step daughters and sometimes did use the surname White. Sounds as if he was a extordianary step-father because he mentioned in his will that they sometimes used his surname and they were a part of his estate as well as a step son with another surname and his own birth child. Does this answer you question?
