Re: Slaves returned from Canada
In Response To: Re: Slaves returned from Canada ()
I have information regarding John Daniel Newell Sr. who died in 1828 owning a slave named Rachael who was born about 1813. This Rachael was given to his son Thomas Newell in 1830. By 1856 Thomas does not own her anymore meaning she was either sold or she died. With this information it's possible the article related to this John and Rachael. His son John Daniel Newell Jr. was given the slave Perry from his father's estate. Perry was born about 1820 in MS and later married a woman named Elizabeth born about 1825 in MS. They had at least one daughter who is known named Jane born about 1857. If the article is regarding the John Jr. and the Rachael born about 1841 than it's possible Rachael is the daughter of Perry and Elizabeth. This information is from Copiah County Probate Records.
