In Response To: Re: Cancer Plantation Slaves ()
In looking at the 1791 manumission for Cancer there is no Hannah listed. However, in looking at Leo/Oatlands there is indeed a Hannah (age 57). She is listed as the wife of "Baptist" Billy (age 66). He also manumits Betty, age 32 (dau. of Billy), Charlotte, age 11 (dau. of Betty); John, age 7 (son of Betty), Billy, age 5 (son of Betty); Easter, age 2 (dau. of Betty), Winney or Winny, age 31, dau. of Bapt. Billy; Enoch, age 12 (son of Winny); Nelly, age 9 (dau. of Winny); William age 29, son of Billy. Do any of these names sound familiar to you? If so, then you need to notify me immediately. I can connect you to a man who has done a good piece of geneology on this family. It is his family.
Best Regards and Good Luck,
Remember these records are as 1791.
