Re: 1860 Slave Schedule ... Fugitive

Looks to me like that "tic" mark is placed next to all entries not recorded as "B" in the race column. And those entry look like "Y". I think this might have been this particular enumerator's entry for non-B, or mixed race children and not for fugitives.

I have looked at this 1860 slave schedule hundred of times and never notice the tic marks (?) in the Fugitive column before yesterday... In that column is also a marking for the 3 year old male child who I believe is the son of the 29 female...

My theory is the female is the concubine of my GGG-Grand Uncle who is listed as the slave owner and the boy is their oldest son. Over the next approx 16 years she would have additional children with him.

They are probably listed as Fugitives because they both were used as security/mortage in the family meetings/succession proceeding of his deceased wife.

It's a long story that I will have to write about and post at Afrigeneas Talking.

Gender: Female
Race: Yellow (Asian) (She was of mixed ancestry but not Asian)
Age: 29
Home in 1860: Avoyelles, Louisiana
Name of Slave Owner: B P Delavallade
Fugitive: X
