Dear Ms. Stanton,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
In addition to the resource Ms. Lane recommended, we suggest that you first contact the Dinwiddie Circuit Court. Please see their Archives and Historical Documents page for listings of some of the records they have. In addition, the Petersburg Public Library Special Collections Room may be of assistance. There may also be records at the Library of Virginia that are relevant.
For more advice, see the History Hub blog Researching the History of your Property.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
