A genie angel shared with me the fact that the data base Virginia, Historical Society Papers, 1607-2007, is online at FamilySearch.Org. (Note: no promises that link will work, as you must sign in to use this data base. So, if it does not work for you, sign in to FamilySearch.Org, browse around to United States data bases, Virginia data bases, and you will find the link to this data base.) This is a browse only data base at this time.
When you get to the data base, there are 71 "boxes" to investigate. Note there is also set of index cards found after Box 71. It is alpha, but, you will still have to be creative with your search in the actual "boxes" if you find something of interest in the index cards. I have not yet figured out if there is a "trick" to the numbers on the index cards that would send you to the correct box right away. If you know the trick, please leave a comment.
So, the other night I was up in the middle of the night, yes and ONLINE too, something I almost never do in the middle of the night, and I was snooping around. In my snooping, I discovered the Nathan Wither's Bible records. See Box 70, pages 136 to 142 (hope I recorded those page numbers correctly in the middle of the night.)
The first page of the record is a collection record report. These pages contain a lot of hints as to what follows.
There are several pages of slave records. I saved the images to my hard drive and transcribed them to the best of my ability with Transcript. No editing other than cropping has been done to the images. My attempt at transcriptions of each page follow the image of that page. The pages are presented in the same order as they were online. I did not necessarily maintain the spacing as in the original record. The first page gave me the most difficulty in transcribing, and I urge you to be very cautious with my "take" on the names and dates. You will note if I was not sure, I put a (?) in my transcription. If there are errors, please leave a comment so I can correct them. Thanks.
