I show that Dr. John Woodson purchased 6 slaves of African decent when He arrived in Jamestowne, however there is no other mention as to what happened to the slaves and their decendants. On my Mothers side her Grandmother and great grand maother are Woodsond and we show that her great grandmother was born in Virginia, but died in Maury county Tennesee. I am trying to tract her origins. Her name was Jane Woodson and in the cencus she is classified as a mulatto so any help you can give me would be truly helpful in the search of my family tree.
