Re: Emancipation Records Look-ups NC
In Response To: Emancipation Records Look-ups NC ()
It seems I have asked you before, but I don't seem to find the answer you gave, so let me ask again.
Do you have any emancipation records for any Petteways? There was a John Petteway (slaveowner) in Warren County, but he died in 1790 or so. I don't know if any of his children may have freed slaves. One of his children was Mark Pettway of the Pettways of Gees Bend. I am in the unfortunate position of not knowing who was the slaveholder of my John (my great grandfather) and Julian Petteway (his brother) prior to their coming to Texas with James Boyd Hawkins in 1846. They were both born in NC ~ 1825 (John) and ~1830 (Julian) respectively.
