Bill, I am a great great grandson of Isaac Roney. He was born in 1800, not later, and died in 1870. The graveyard is in Dinwiddie county, about two miles east of the courthouse on a hill above the remains of Roney's mill. The foundations of the plantation house are still there. The graveyard is across a field from the foundations. A number of people are buried there, but only two stones survive.
The Brown that Rebecca (Aunt Pigeon, everyone called her) was married to was killed in the Civil War. He had property in Texas. Aunt Pigeon and her black retainer travelled to Texas to settle the estate--an epic journey. Anyway, if you want further info contact me at keenbutterworth@yahoo.com
