It's me again and I hope these sites prove helpful.I must say that I have yet to find the site where I read about Allen Bradley as a manager for Walter Crew.Perhaps someone could Google the history of the two mills.
Here is the site for the story by Lewis Savage about Walter Crew. www.icelandichorse.info/walterterrelliowacitymiller
Also for the Shirley Plantation www.shirleyplantation.com
NOW I found by some fluke a wonderful site with info about 57 plantations in Virginia.There is SO much more..info about churches,african american info and historic buildings etc.I only looked at a bit of the site.Bear with me when I type in web sites as I'm basically a computer novice!!! But for info,I love GOOGLE!!!They help me so much.
So,here's the web site for the above plantationswww.virginia.org/site/content.asp?MGrp=1+Mcat
It is called Plantations -History and Heritage-Tidewater and Hampton Road.
Do hope this helps someone.
Now I should begin another thread to search for my ancestors who came from Va.to Ky.
