In Response To: Re: NEHGS ()

Does it say in the book how it was determined that the people listed were Free Negro?
I looked for Isaac Ellison in KY and found only one listing for that name in 1830, in Bullitt KY I think it was, and he was listed under Free White males...
I would like to know if this was the same Isaac Ellison as is listed in the book..
I have recently found family members who were listed in 1860 with nothing in the color columns, which most people, including me, took to mean they were white, but have found some individuals of those families later listed as Black..
