We recently began researching our family and discovered that my great-grandmother was Sarah M. Lumsden, daughter of Thomas Henry who was the son of Henry and grandson of George.
We have Sarah's marriage license to John B, Cox, Cyrina Peacher's marriage certification to Hentry,and we have Sally M. Cox living in Thomas' house in the 1860 census.
We live in New Jersey, but will be coming to Virginia in June for my mother's 90'th birthday. While we are there, we plan to vidsit the Library in Richmond and look for documentary evidence of my family history.
If anyone can give us information of about what, if any, documents are available, I would be very grateful.
