African-American Brown Family

I am trying to locate information on my GGG grandparents, Hack and Margaret Whitfield Brown. They were married in Southampton in 1832 and there information is recorded in the marriage register. They were listed in the 1860 census. In 1870, they were in Nansemond County. Hack was listed as a basketmaker.

I read where Southampton had one of the largest populations of free Blacks prior to slavery ending. I would like to know if there is anyone out there who knows about this family. I find it interesting that Hack had a trade and that their marriage was recorded in 1832. Thanks!
