BELMEAD - Hello, Virginians. My great-grandfather's brother was a religious brother in the order of the De La Salle Christian Brothers. I recently received biographical material about him stating that in 1899 he founded a school for the children of slaves in Belmead, VA.

Can anyone tell me exactly where Belmead was located? And can anyone suggest a source of information about schools of that era? (The La Salle order archive has no record of the school).

TAYLOR - I would love to find out anything about the descendants of John D. (Daniel) Taylor, who supposedly appears in the 1820 census. I hear that there were alteast two John D.'s, a father and son. I have an orphan, who was in Martin Co.,NC from the 1850 census. His name was John Daniel Taylor. Years of research has uncovered no link to any of his family. The only other John Daniel Taylors that I have been able to find are the ones from Powhatan Co. Thanks.
