Re: wimberly and the fitzgerald plantation?

Hi Diane,

When you are referring to "Twiggs" do you mean that they were born in Twiggs county?

If so - then you need to begin to do some research on wills and documents of the slaveholders Henry, Polly, Ezekial (14), Robert and Fred Wimberly (28, and also on John Fitzpatrick (157 slaves 1860)

According to Tom Blakes site here are the numbers of Wimberly slaves he counted:
WIMBERLY, Carolina, 23 slaves, District 325, page 250
WIMBERLY, Henry S., 86 slaves, District 324, page 247B
WIMBERLY, Polly, 32 slaves, District 325, page 249
WIMBERLY, Robt. R., 94 slaves, District 325, page 249B

First - go to the slave schedules for 1860 on ancestry (if you have a subscription). Determine the approximate age of Tilman and Mary in 1860 - based on ages listed in 1870. Search each slaveholder to see if they have slaves that match up - age-wise. Rember that census ages are rarely exact.

Then check to see what documents are available concerning those slaveholders. The best place to start is the county Genweb site - see link below.

You then need to do a google search for the names of the slaveholders - to see what researchers have been dealing with those families.

Suggest yuou read hints and tips on how to do slave research on the slave research forum here.

But this is not a simple process and there are usually no solutions online. The records of your family members will be contained in the wills, court paprs and other documents pertaining to the slaveholding families.
