I am looking for the family history of Anna Hensdale and Richard Wilson of VA/NC. Anna Hensdale married Richard Wilson in 1822 in Stokes County, NC and then went to Halifax County, Virginia, where she had her firstborn son, Lee Hensdale, in about 1824. She is still in Halifax County in 1830, but there is no Richard Wilson. Ann is found back in Stokes County in 1840, along with several children and an 80 y/o man. Also residing in Stokes at that time are David and Holister Hensdale. She canít be found again until 1870, when she is found in Patrick County, Virginia with her son Lee. Her children carry her surname, not Richard Wilsonís. Her son Lee married Lucy Wilson and had children in Stokes County. He then moved and is found in Carroll County in 1850 and in Patrick County in 1870 and 1880. After Lucy died, he married Christina Wilson. He died in Patrick County in 1889.
Has anyone ever heard of this family? They are of mixed race, as I understand. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
