Scott County Chancery Court Records
On file at the Virginia State Library
James Caldwell vs. Christopher Haynes
James Caldwell had a â€œfine Mulatto girlâ€ for sale, but did not want her taken out of the county of where he lived, as he said that his family was very fond of her. He sold her to Christopher Haynes who swapped her to Grimes Neil for a Negro Boy. Which was against the agreement that James Caldwell claims to have had with the said Christopher Haynes.
(MY NOTE: Grimes Neal named a son Lilburn Haynes Neal, and James Caldwell was a witness to the will of John Allen, who was married to the sister of Hezekiah P. Neal, executor of Johnâ€™s will)
There is also a marriage record in Scott county dated 19 Nov. 1829 Christopher Haynes m. Louisa Neil.
