Looking for a connection beginning in South Boston, VA, Halifax County. Stanhope was fathered by a white prominent man. The family has been told his name was Armstead Lacy, but have not been able to verify. Several Armistead/Armstead have been found in the census, but ages don't match. Stanhope's mother was a daughter of a slave named Annie Bette. Annie later married a McPhail. Mary was Annie's mother. Stanhope's DOB, 1885.
Stanhope had a barber shop in South Boston, VA before moving to Bristol, VA. Any help would be appreciated.
