Looking for information on my grandfather, Boston Harper from Norfolk County VA (now Chesapeake) possibly Princess Anne County (now Virginia Beach VA) He had four sons, Robert Boston, George W, Charlie Isaiah and my dad Alexander Harper.
I am of Irish/English heritage. I have ancestors who settled in Philedelphia and then some moved to Harper's Ferry West Virginia/ virginia. I am replying to you becuase some of my family used Alexander for childrens names. In addition some of them in the 1700 to 1800 held African Americans as servants (slaves). this is not something I am proud of, However, in the will of one of my Granfather's He mention a servant Lady and held her in hi regard.
