Re: Slave Research in Woodford Fayette Co. KY.
: Some of my folks are from this same area. The surnames I'm
: researching in Woodford Co. are: Bell, Taylor, Turner. Actually,
: my grandmother and her sister married two Carr brothers. Both
: marriages ended in divorce. I haven't done any work on these
: families as no children were born of the marriages.
: As for your research, are you saying that your gggrandmother
: married someone who was nearly the same age as her father, who
: also carried the same name?
: I searched the National Park Service web database on Soldiers and
: Sailors of the Civil War and found a Charles Black who served as
: a private in the USCT 115 Co. C. There were two other
: Black-surnamed soldiers, Corry Black (USCT 115 Co. I) and Henry
: C. Black (USCT 115 Co. I.) in the same regiment. If you haven't
: already done so, you might want to check the service and/or
: pension records of these three men for clues to your ancestors.
: Good luck.
Thats some important information and I will be sure to check and see if, This Charles Black and Henry Black are relatived to me.
