Can you do a look-up for me?? I remember that you and I are related to the people who worked JJ Williams plantations in Warren county NC and Leon county FL. I know they worked as both slave and sharecropper.
In 1870 in the census for Leon co Fl, Watson Burgess stated that he was born in 1827/1828 in NC. His wife Polly Burgess stated the same. There is also a Freedman's Bureau record from 1871 that supports this claim. I'm also related to Hawkins, Coleman, Clack and possibly Williams and Alston as well. Thank you so much, Toria
