AfriGeneas Free Persons of Color Forum
Marriages: Escambia, Florida
Dear FPOC Researchers:
Afrigeneas is privileged to count Del Jupiter as part of the Afrigeneas family. Many of you are aware of her sterling scholarship of Spanish and Colonial West Florida, in addition to the numerous awards for family research.
The url below will take you to the rootsweb page of Free People of Color and slave marriages in Escambia County from 1831 to 1870. Included with the list of names are primary resource references from Wills, Deeds, Court cases. Please note that these are not all of the marriages, but reflect the names uncovered in Del's incredible research.
Many of these names can be found in Mobile and New Orleans.
To quote Del Jupiter, "You must cast a wide net."
Enjoy and hopefully you will make a connection.
Thanks so much Del.
K Wyer Lane
