In Response To: Silas and Benjamin West, Sampson Co., NC ()
I found my ancestors as slaves in court records. I found them in Deeds and Mortages records and also Estate and Return records here in Ga. The Estate and Return records are good because when someone died, the county required that a inventory of all property held by the deceased be accounted for and on the inventory, you may find the names of all the slaves if any was owned by the deceased.
So if you have not done so already, start researching Lloyd West and his family, especially the court records on him.
