Searching for Roy name in Kentucky

Hi!

I am trying to research my great-great-grandfather in Kentucky. Possibly around Boston, in the Pendleton County (however, I do not know where this particular bit of info came from).

His name was Lewis Roy, he was a freed slave and his occupation was Horse Trainer. He was the son of an African king, a Zulu. I do not know what happened to him, he did not come to Australia with Mary and his son.

He had a son, William who was born to a woman called Mary in 1824. I do not know if she was white or colored, although a photo of William shows him as possibly a mulatto. Mary took William to England and thence to Australia in 1834.

Can anybody help me as to where I can get help in researching some more?

Joyce
