I am in search of Henry Francis married to a Polly CHARITY. The couple had 6 children that I know of: Thomas (born circ 1824), Elias (born circ 1825 - 1879), Richard (born cir 1828), Julian (born circ 1829), Virginia (born circ 1832), and Miles (born circ. 1835). I'm looking for any information of Henry FRANCIS or Polly CHARITY (later her name becomes Anna). My great great grandfather was Elias K. Francis. I have found Henry on the Surry County, VA (Southwark Township)census 1820 - 1850.

Also, there is another Elias Francis in Surry County (Southwark Township), VA, who was married to a Parthenia Banks and was born between 1805 and 1810. I have no idea who this Elias is, but I believe he is part of my FRANCIS family - possibly the brother fo Henry FRANCIS. All appear in the Freed Negro Registry of Surry County, VA. Any info on this line of the family would be greatly appreciated.
