1866 Dallas County AL Census
In Response To: MOBLEY Looking in Alabama ()
I too am researching ancestors from Dallas County, Alabama (the surnames French, Weaver, Smyly, Tyus, Moultrie, Small). If you can provide the name of the precinct in which your relatives resided, I can provide a list of slave owners from that precinct from the 1860 slave schedule.
Have you found any of your relatives on the 1866 Alabama state census for Dallas County? This census for Dallas County lists the names of the african american heads of household under the the slave owner's property on which they resided. This is a very helpful census for zeroing in on the slave owner.
