In Response To: New Book - Israel on the Appomattox ()
The freedom register (1846) for the John Randolph slaves (380+) shows a first name, age at manunission, complexion and some familial relationships. In the 1850 Census for Miami & Shelby County, Ohio you see these family groups and some of them have the surnames of White, Carter, Giles and Johnson/Johnston.
It would be very interesting if family connections between the slaves held by the various Randolph families over a period of, say, 50 years could be made.
