I am researching a man named Jacob Abrahams, a convict from London in 1771, who settled in Norfolk and then Richmond, Virginia, around 1790. He married Deborah Mordecai (daughter of Mordecai Mordecai) and they had Wilcher Abrams, Simon Abrams, and Zipporah Abrams Morris. Their descendants include persons with the Gentry surname as well as Netherwood and Hovan and Abrams. I am interested in any genealogical info about these families. In fact, I am also interested in finding out more about this Jacob Abrahams, who is alleged to have stolen a free negro girl, Sally Valentine, of Norfolk, and sold her into slavery in Fayetteville, N.C.
