These families resided in Wingina, Nelson, Virginia, and were slave/servants of Nathaniel Francis Cabell, owner of Edgewood, in the old town of Warminster. Which included the "Swan Creek Plantation", located near the mouth of the James River, and neatly tucked away in the base of the "Blue Ridge Mountains", just a few miles from the famous "Walton's Mountain".
Andrews, Godsey, Washington, and Graves are the surnames attached to my mothers side of the family.
Most, if not all, were from a small town just outside of Petersburg, Dinwiddie, Virginia, called Namozine, Dinwiddie, Virginia.
