Research Notes

  • Another typed version of the list "Coloured Peoples Births" appears in the Hampshire County WV GenWeb, entitled "Bible Records of Some Black Deaths."[2] Comparing the two versions line-by-line, one difference appears. Instead of "Negro Rebbecca of Phoebe born July 1, 1858", the GenWeb version has Negro Rebbecca of Phoebe born July 1, 1838." The GenWeb reading is preferable, because it follows the ascending order of birth years without a break. A photostat of the original would be even better, but has not yet been discovered.
  • Samuel Cochran wrote a will in 1893 in Hampshire, West Virginia which referred to five of his siblings who appear on the list of "Coloured Peoples Birth." In addition to Samuel, they are Letty, Daniel, Julia, Lucy and Phillis.[3]
