My name is Frank Battle. My grandfather Fred Lee Battle was born 1901 in Warren County, N.C. My great grandfather Iley Battle was born 1870 also in North Carolina. My gggrandfather Willis Battle, whose birthdate is unknown was from North Carolina/Virginia.
My hope is to clarify lineage possibly back to slaveholder. There are so many lines of Battle's from Virginia/North Carolina, I know it is going to be difficult to trace which family my ancestors may have belonged to.
If there are any Battle families originally from Virginia/North Carolina who may have documentation or knowledge of slave and slaveholders, any information that you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
