Neva,

I understand, however, If you could provide birth/death dates for your Cannad(a)ys and place of birth/death. I will gladly research it. I know that some of the Cannadays were law officials in that era. One was a justice of the peace and his name appears as an official on most of the county records of that time. That Cannaday I know is a part of my ancestoral line.

I also have documents that William 1 and William 2 Cannaday both had daughters named Nancy. For the record, all of the above are White Cannadays and I have found their names spelled often like yours without the "a".

I am not suggesting that you are from my Black line of Cannadays in anyway, but since I am searching I will be happy to check your information out while I am doing mine. Clearly, there was some intermingling with the slaves to produce the early line of Mulatto Cannadays. In any event, happy researching!

Alta Cannaday
