GEORGE family, Craven county 1850
Am doing research for a friend, named Candece whose family appears on the 1850 census of Craven county NC, surnamed GEORGE. She has the section from Paul's book on the George family, New Berne - but needs to know where to go to make connections to the earlier George's listed by Paul and the family found free in 1850.
Mis-spelled in the index (her name was Betsy:
Name: Bessy George
she is listed with children:
Since NC is not my area of research, I don't know where to point her towards docs for New Berne. Was there a register of Free Negros? Are birth records available? Checked the Craven county GenWeb site but didn't find much info there.
Did find apprentice bonds on the local library site and George marriages on ancestry. She should be posting here soon.
