While researching my Pennsylvania lines, I ran across an ancestor who was taken and sold in Louisiana (sometime between 1830-1840). I believe her name was Charlotte Green. She and her husband were escaped slaves living in Lancaster County Pennsylvania. They had three children, one of whom was my Great Great Grandfather, Henry Green. One night Charlotte was kidnapped, and taken back to Maryland. Her husband followed her to try to purchase her freedom, and was never heard from again.

However, the wife was traced to Lousiana where she was sold as a slave. She eventually won her freedom, and became a famous Yellow Fever Nurse. She married a wealthy Creole, in New Orleans, and had other Children. How ever, I have no idea what her married name would have been, and have had not luck in finding her in Louisiana. I know her first name was Charlotte, and I imagine she kept it.

Does anyone know where I could look for her in Louisiana? All assistance is appreciated.
