Ancestors of Andrew Washington (abt 1861)
I recently began doing research on my family history and have come across a few ancestors that owned slaves. One census from 1880 showed that my 3rd Great-Grandfather, Joseph McKinney of South Carolina, had a "servant" by the name of Andrew Washington. He does appear on the 1870 census or any census after 1880. His information: Black, male, servant, single, works on farm, cannot write, born in South Carolina to parents that were both born in South Carolina (according to the census likely filled out by my grandfather, so the information might be wrong or misleading).
