Surnames and Family Research Forum
In Response To: Re: Booze ()
The focus of death certificates are to record the events related to the death of the individual. The other information such place and date of birth and parents' names are secondary information. Most times the informant providing the information (spouses, children, others) would not have first hand knowledge regarding the events related to the birth. Therefore this information needs to be corroborated with other documents. It is a possibilities that the information on your ancestor's death certificate is incorrect.
If you are unable to locate you ancestors in the U.S. Census before 1870, he was mostly enslaved. Therefore you are going to have to locate the last slave holding family of his in order to answer your question. This research can not be conducted online.
I would greatly encourage you to check out various resources that focus on conducting African American and slave era research.
