Millard, it is good to hear from another ancestor of Julia Arabella Sherard Kornegay. I have a single picture of Julia as a young woman and am very willing to share this with you if you do not have it. As far as mysteries go, Napoleon is the greatest puzzle that I am not able to settle. My wife, Emma, is the descendent of Julia's brother, John Holmes Sherard, commonly called Jack. Jack was her grandfather, but little is know in the family about his history. I have pictures of his children, but sorely, not one of him. I wasn't aware that the Sherard Family owned as many plantations as they did. I received a message on one of the Ancestry.com message boards about where the Sherard Cemetery is. I will copy it and place it on this site as a reply. Were you aware that Julia and Jack had a younger brother, Napoleon Jr, who died early as a child? I am anxious to learn what you may know. At one time I had contacts with other Kornegay family members, but over the years, I have not heard from them. There exists a picture of Julia when she was twelve. The one I have is when she was in her twenties. It took me many years to determine this was Julia, but from the facial features which matched my wife, it occurred to me that who it was. The Kornegay Family confirmed that it was. I know of one young woman who may be a relative of yours. I need to check my records and see. Please keep it touch. The mystery of Napoleon and the impact on his families descedents transcends a vail of sorrow which may never be breached.
