Re: FPOC.... migrations and connectivity

Hi all. On migrations, well, I've been working on FPOC up in Rochester and Buffalo NY. I see a lot of familiar surnames from various VA, MD, etc. FPOC lists from the early 1800s. Example, Bloxson/Blossom/Bloxom.

Here are the names of all the FPOC in ROchester NY in the 1850 Census, born in VA, NC, MD, etc. Just in case someone recognizes an ancestor. If you want a census page image, just email.

Rochester FPOC were overwhelmingly born in NYS counties, one-three generations from emancipation, under NYS "gradual emancipation." At the start of the 1800s, NYS had something like 20,000 slaves, and by 1840, had 4. Slavery was concentrated around NY, Queens, Westchester, Ulster, Kings, Albany counties.

Buffalo, a whole lot more VA/MD/SC/NC born FPOC, arriving there in the 1830s and 1840s, so that most children in the 1850 census are NY-born, while adults are overwhelmingly southern.

Anyway, Rochester 1850 (Name, birth yr, birth place)
