The Booker family of Prince Edward County, VA
  • gpeakswade February 2012
    I am searching for information on my ggg-grandfather Edward Booker. He was a slave on the Booker Plantation in Prospect, VA. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
  • My great-great uncle married an Elizabeth Booker who was born in 1877 in the southern portion of Prince Edward County(Meherrin, Hampden District), my uncle name was Mac Walton. I am almost certain that Elizabeth, often called Lizzie, was the daughter of Jane Booker. I am not certain of her father's name. She had a younger sister, Lucy, who she helped raised.

    I am searching for my great-great-grandmother Martha Booker mother and father. Martha was born in Kentucky and she had one daughter Cora Booker Lee. Martha lived in Farmville, Va. I was informed that her Father was J Lands/Landes and her mother was M Lands/Landes. I was also told that there quite a few Lands/Landes family in Farmville.

    Morton, I saw your post about Lizzie Booker having a younger sister named Lucy. My maternal 3xs great grandmother was Lucy Booker from the Booker Plantation which I believe was originally in Cumberland Co., VA then moved to Tennessee in 1828. Slaveholders were Merritt H. Booker, Peter Richard Booker (brother) and Sally Booker-Garland (daughter to Merritt). Lucy married Horace Webster who was from Tennessee. Lucy lived and died in Barton Co., KS. She was born 1810 or earlier....
