Family Stories

of the Enslaved Community at Oatlands

Locating descendants and documenting their stories is an ongoing project at Oatlands and the Unitarian Universalist Church of Loudoun County.  Of particular interest are the last names of Allen, Ball, Bryant, Buchanan, Bush, Carter, Day, Fisher, Gleed, Howard, Jackson, Johnson, Lewis, Mason, Moton, Murray, Russ/Rust, Stewart/Steward, Thornton, Valentine, Warner, and Washington.
