Still Seeking Collatinus, Coladnus, Corlatnus Mason
I am re-posting this message from more than two years ago.
I am a descendant of Collatinus Mason of Dinwiddie County, VA. I have not been able to determine where he, or his given and surname came from. I am guessing that our family may have originated one of the slave farms of Dinwiddie or Surry County, VA. If you have any information on the name Collatinus, please contact me.
Collatinus had a son who may have spelled his name Corlatnus, or Colladnus Mason who was in the Norfolk, VA area during the 1870's. By 1895, Colladnus Jr seems to be a long shoreman in Boston, MA married to Louisa Brand Mason. If you are related to Colladnus Mason, or Louisa Brand Mason of Boston, please contact me so I can become reacquainted with this part of the family.
