Re: re puerto rico
In Response To: re puerto rico ()

Hi,
There were free people of color in Puerto Rico prior to 1870 - there were even black freemen on Columbus' ships, so you do not have to assume that the person you are looking for was a slave - but the majority of blacks and maulattos in PR were enslaved, in that time period
