SCIPIO family, Loudoun County, VA , African-American
Posted by: Denise Oliver-Velez (ID *****1834) Date: February 22, 2003 at 06:14:06

Hi,

This family - with roots in slavery in Loudoun county VA has later descendants who moved to West Virginia, Ohio, Washington DC and PA - that I know of. The name is spelled, and mis-spelled in the records of Loudoun county in a variety of ways: Sippi, Sipi, Sippio, Scippio, and Cippio and Scopis.

Would be interested in adding more information to the Loudoun family tree.

Here is what I have collected so far:
