In Response To: Re: slaves named in will of President James Monroe ()
I can only speak for Loudoun County - about one 10th of the wills, and birth records refer to some slaves with surnames - sometimes due to the fact that the father of some children was a FPOC, and to the peculiar politics of Loudoun county.
I don't know how the surnames were arrived at - will take a look at these particular families and see if I find them with surnames under prior ownership.
