This is now Blackstone, VA. Area was orignally named for it's two variaties
of sheep.
Blacks & Whites shows on Civil War maps of Va. The same maps show Lunenburg
Court House as "Lewiston" (in present-day Lewiston District) and about where
Chase City is now was then named "Christianville The City". About where Victoria
is now was a crossroads place named "Crymes' Store." What we know as Nottoway
Falls (between Victoria and Crewe) is shown as "Great Falls of Nottoway".
