In Response To: Re: [GA] THOMAS BLAND ()
I found no free persons of color surnamed Bland on the 1830 census in Georgia. As your Bland family first appears on the census in 1870, the likelihood is that Thomas Bland was enslaved prior to 1865, and you may wish to visit the Slave forum on this site to see if others have searched for your family and to learn the process in searching for records of enslaved ancestors. Good luck in your search.
