Followed Tags
Alexis is a Wiki Genealogy Volunteer following these tags:
John Clark and Sarah (Wiley) Davenport are my 3rd Great-Grandparents and lived in Brookville, VA in the mid-to-late 1800s. I believe they were slaves, however, there were a number of Freed folks with the last name of Davenport in that area. Most of their children remained in the Brookville/Charlotte area
Jacob and Matilda Diggs are my 3rd Great Grandparents. Best I can tell, they were slaves of John W. Williams of Anne Arundel County, MD and were seperated before the Civil War when Jacob was sold to the Offutt Family of Rockville, MD. They were able to reunite after the war and moved to OH for a brief period of time. They came back to the DC area in the late 1800s. As far as I can tell, all of their children remained in the DC/Baltimore area.
James C and Annie (Diggs) Jones are my great-grandparents. Both were born in OH but moved to Washington, DC. James attended Howard University in the early 1900s and became a pharmacist while Annie was a dressmaker.
I am the direct descendent of slaves in Maryland and Virginia. My maternal grandfather’s grandparents were slaves in Maryland and my maternal grandmother’s grandparents were slaves in Virginia.
Hampton and Sarah Wade are my 3rd Great-Grandparents. According to the Virginia Cohabitation Register, they were both born in Lunenberg County, VA and were slaves of Philip Sneed in Prince Edward County, VA when the Civil War ended. John "Jack" Wade is their son and my Great Grandfather. He married Clemintine "Clemmie" Davenport and raised 15+ children in the Buffalo Area of Prince Edward County, VA.

Thanks Alexis for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.

Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or special event. Read the goals and tasks of the project and join if it is a good fit.

Let me know if you have trouble finding projects which fit your focus. Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.

Thanks for volunteering, Alexis! You are now a full member of the WikiTree community. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Start with the New Member How-To pages - they are really useful as you add profiles and learn your way around.

If you click the green DAVENPORT tag on your profile page, you'll see that there are about 50 other WikiTreers following that surname. It may be worth checking to see if any of them are relatives.

Take your time, and let me know if you need any help using the site. I'm always happy to answer questions.
