Re: Emancipation in Mecklenburg VA
In Response To: Emancipation in Mecklenburg VA ()

The 1850s is much later than I usually research, but on my site you will see "Virginia Slaves freed after 1782" under which Mike Nicholls has the manumissions from several other counties. So you should get an idea. I also came across manumissions cited in court records (the court order books).
familysearch.org has Mecklenburg County registers of free Negroes, but they were not certain to have registered.
