Re: How the ex-slaves adopt last names?

Now this is a great questions. They made so many rules and regulations to keep x-slaves in check, so I'm sure there is something in the laws of states that determined what and if a slave could use a certain last name. There were probably penalties, if they used certain names. I can't believe all x-slave owners went along with a x-slave using THEIR family name willingly.
