In Response To: Re: Sapp Family Reunion ()

“Published information giving names of slaveholders and numbers of slaves held in Burke County, Georgia , in 1860, is either non-existent or not readily available. “ However, the 1870 United States of America Census lists Soloman and his family as slaves who has been freed .This is what the census reveals.

Kate 31, B, farm labor
Allice, 12, B, farm labor
Caroline 08, B
Thomas, 06, B
Willie, female, B, 04
