Re: Former slaves of Dr. Charles Everett

i am currently researching some settlements of freed slaves in rural Pennsylvania. one of these was settled by the former slaves of Dr. Charles Everett of Charlottesville, VA (Belmont Plantation). the surnames of these folks were: Duke, Bell, Watson, Allen, Robertson, Lewis, and Meyers. they came to Pennsylvania in 1854 but by 1870 almost all were gone. does anyone know if any of these families returned to Virginia and re-established themselves?
Hello Skip,

I can't answer your question about returning to Virginia, but I'm responding on the Surnames of the former slaves. Like many other instances we've found, it appears, these folks did not take the surname of the former owner, Everett.

Guess that is another story to be researched.
