AfriGeneas Free Persons of Color Forum

Free Person

Hello, I wanted to ask how do I find out if my ancestor were free persons of color? I'm asking because I'm starting to believe my great-great grandfather and his wife were free. I came accross a deed dated Oct. 29,1872 where my ggreat Eldridge Chism put up $1000 cash on land and owed $600 more. Just wondering where he could of came up with that knid of money back then. On an 1870 census it stated he had a personal estate of $400 (does that mean cash?). Thank you. Renae
