Re: Percentage of Slaves w/ Masters' Surnames
In Response To: Percentage of Slaves w/ Masters' Surnames ()
Interesting. Also, for a paper, I analyzed the slave narratives for the states of Mississippi and Arkansas. In both states, less than half of the former enslaved people of the narrative took the last enslaver's surname.
In his book, Herbert Gutman did a similar study for the states of South Carolina and Texas. He yielded the same results.
