Yeah, Art, guess there is a difference between a slave and staff worker. I have done some of the research especially with the Southern states that have censuses such as 1850 schedule, 1850 slave schedule, also 1860 as well. Yet, in the regular schedule, you will see were a person who is either mulatto or Black listed on the same page as those who are white, or listed on the page as a laborer or whatever, which means to me that they either may be on staff or just simply hired. Slaves on the other hand are still slaves, unless they do like Harriet Tubman did or Anthony Bowen did by hiring themselves out to someone else while still being a slave on the master's plantation. Understand where I am coming from on this one?
