I have been recently researching a Francis Family of color fron Boykins, Southampton Co, VA. James Francis b. 17 Jul 1917-Boykins, VA- d. 21 May 2008 Brooklyn, NY. I believe him to be the son of William Francis b. abt. 1877 in Virginia and of Lina Unknown b. abt. 1890 in VA. They had the following children of which I believe may have all been born in Boykins, VA.
Robert "Robie" - b. abt. 1907 David T - b. abt. 1909 Mary E.- b. abt 1911 Marie-b. abt 1915 Maggie- b. abt 1916 James- b. 17 Jul 1917 Boykins,Southampton Co, VAd. 21 May 2008 Brooklyn, NY William H- b. abt 1923 Andrew- b. abt 1923 Annie- b. abt 1925 Laurina- b. abt 1927 Ella- b. abt 1930
If anyone knows anything about this family or is a descendent of any of these children I would love to be in touch.
