Re: Slave descendants of the Cabell family (Derek)

Julius Thompson, a Massie slave.
No, I didn't trace all of the Thompson's yet.

What is remarkable about our family, is that that they were transferred and inherited by relatives and children of these slave owners within the same families. Such as the Massie, Loving, Bridgewater, Cabell, Mayo, Venable, Woodson, Horsley, and Coleman families, just to name a few.

It was rare that the slaves were sold out of these familes.

My hope is that enough relatives will be interested enough TO GET INVOLVED.

Each branch of our families were given to separate branches of these families, so it's literally going to take a army of us, to rebuild our African American family links.

I have about 30 individuals from the slave descendants of the Massies. But the hard part is to find and link the others.

This is why I this phenomenon, "RBS" or related, by slavery.

You can't just look at one particular branch of the tree, because, each branch of the African American family ends at each slave owner. You'll have to look at the
marriages of the children of slaves, and build backwards.

The problem with Julius, is that he was married before Black or Mulatto people were recorded as "human beings" in 1847. Black people weren't recorded until 1865 in most cases. Luckily for us, Nelson County kept impeccable records.

I'll search for Julius in the Nelson County Freedman's book of marriages, and let you know what I find. I've seen the "Cash" surname many times, but didn't conect the dots, yet.
