    Hi Cookster,
    Are Ollie Gray & Georgia Merriweather from Alabama or Virginia? Could you provide more information on their ties to Virginia?

    Thanks for visiting the UNL database,

    Hi Cookster,
    Most of the records in the Unknown No Longer database are from Virginia but owners did have plantations outside of Virginia. What are Ollie Gray & Georgia Merriweather's ties to Virginia? If we can narrow down their Virginia ties maybe we can help you find some information.
    Thanks for responding!

    Hi Cookster,
    Obviously, you've looked at census records to verify Merriweather/Meriweather/Meriwether genealogical information. What other types of records have you checked?
