    I have been able to trace my Great Grandmother's birth in 1855. She was born to Orlando Marcellus Smith and was the first wife of Bannister Lee. I have been unable to locate his birth record. Any suggestions?

    Free blacks were requried to have papers. Try serching circuit court records for the county in which you believed he was born; in Virginia the records are located at the Library of Virginia. Lauranett, curator of African American history
