DESHAZER - DESHAZER, A.W. (b.ca.1831) is shown on the 1860 Farmville, Prince Edward Co., VA census at age 29. He is also shown on the Military Roster of P.E. Co., in 1861. What did the A.W. stand for? Who were his relatives? Descendants? Any information on this man would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much, B. Yamagami Sep 23, 1997 - 12:44 - From: - B. Yamagami

DESHAZO/DESHAZER - DESHAZO/DESHAZER, John -- I am trying to find out who the "seven white souls" shown in his household on the 1790 census were!! In 1792, a John Deshaser is shown buying land from John Ligon in P.E. Co. A William Chessar is shown in Halifax Co (1796) marrying an Ann League. Since Halifax is just south of P.E. County, it is reasonable to believe that these two could be related. In 1798, a James Deshaser buys 30 acres from William T. Smith in P.E. Co. I am wondering if this line goes back to the Deshazo lines in King and Queen Co., VA? Any information on his family would be wonderful!! Thanks, B. Yamagami
