Re: How the ex-slaves adopt last names?

Hi Monica,
Like David suggested, there have been a number of discussions on this topic. Below is the link to a previous post I made.

Some took the last enslaver's surname. Some selected the surname of a previous enslaver or the owner of the farm/plantation where he was born. Some took on a new name not associated with an enslaver. It really varies.
