An excellent resource is the printed Virginia Slave Index (compiled 1853-1865), later transcribed in microfilm format during the WPA in the 1930s and now available thanks to the Alexandria Library and put out by Heritage Books; also available on Amazon. Arranged alphabetically by slaveowner names, the 6th volume is a Geographic Supplement, arranged by county names. Pricey but worth it, or maybe you can order interlibrary loan.
