I don't know if we have a connection or not. That is the time period that I am now trying to sort out.
I can trace back to Margaret Blake who had 8 or 9 children from 1 or two marriages. One child Gertrude had a son Leedona Blake. My family tree decends from Leedona who was born in 1871.
That is where my research is not yet complete. My e-mail is email@example.com
. If you can describe the towns and families that you have in virginia about that time, I can add to all the families that I have described and to which I have yet to make a connection.
I am interested in how you made the connection to Josua who can in late 1700's and not to other families alread here.
