Thank you for your comments. I am just trying to figure out when they all as a whole picked last names "after slavery". I didn't know if the Freedmen's bureau stepped in and made sure they had last names before the census taker came around or whatever I just wanted to know if this was a requirment they had to have one "After Slavery", not before slavery.
