A book that mentions “Afro-Virginian” Southern Claims Commission Applications
Yet another example of the use of the Southern Claims Commission applications in relatively recent published works. This link is to a limited preview of Afro-Virginian History and Culture (1999) by John Salient.
Just a quick comment however, the “Margaret Clove” mentioned on page 195 is incorrect. Her last name has been mis-indexed by somebody, I believe, who originally created the file folder at the National Archives. This is actually Maragaret A. Clore. I’ll post abstracts from her claim in the near future.
