There will be no emancipation records for Henry Debnam or Lucy Smith because they were not emancipated until after the Civil War. I believe I gave you a record of their marriage some time ago which showed they had been married in 1862 in Wake Co.NC, as included in the book "Somebody Knows My Name, Marriages of Freed People in North Carolina", which are records from the Cohabitation Records of North Carolina. Please note that at the end of the Civil War in 1865, after all slaves had been freed, the State issued an act to allow former slaves to have their marriages that had taken place while they were slaves, acknowledged officially. It required them to report to the County Clerk's office the date of their marriage, and it would be entered into the official records for the State & County; those are the records that are included in Cohabitation records. Any person who is included in those Cohabitation records, would have still been a slave until 1865, the end of the Civil War. Therefore, they were never given their freedom by any circumstance other than the fact that the War was over and ALL slaves were emancipated. There were no records issued to any individual slave giving them their freedom for those freed at the end of the War, and they will not be in any State or County files stating such.
