Looking for Slaves from Jefferson County, VA/WV

I have stumbled across info that says there was about 589 slaves that escaped from Jefferson County, Virginia, which is now West VA (since June 20, 1863). Jefferson County, is the home of Harper's Ferry and Charles Town. It is believed they crossed the Shenandoah River and went into maybe the Loudoun Co or MD area. If you have come across any references to folks being slaves in this county, please contact me.
