Re: Lovick family in Craven County, North Carolina
In Response To: Re: Lovick family in Craven County, North Carolina ()
I would like to know more about the slave origins of my ancestor Nelson Lovick myself. I suspect that he might have been a slave of William Lovick in Craven County. But, I need to actually go the courthouse and do some digging. A local historian informed that Nelson Lovick was one of several ex-slaves buying small parcels of land on a settlement known as "Woodbridge". Woodbridge was a settlement created for the purpose of helping ex-slaves becoming economically stable by a Minister from Connecitut named Edward Bull.
