Re: Trying Different Approaches to Slave Research
In Response To: Re: Trying Different Approaches to Slave Research ()
I'm here to tell you, this research is something else for sure. My Green's, which included (Per 1866) Nannie, age 63, Easter and Infant, age 15, Mike, age 10, Puss and Victor (Victoria), both age 8, and Perry, age 20, don't want to seem to match up with Rice Green's slaves. Let me see, that would make Nannie, age 58, Easter, age 9, Mike, age 4, Puss age 2 and Perry age 14. I don't think Victoria was born by or before 1860 per her age on future census, so that makes 3 females, and 2 males.
I realize that ages didn't mean much to slaves back then and I'm quite sure they didn't report them themselves on these labor contract records. I think Nannie has died by the 1870 census, but the children's ages are a close match from 1860-70 per 1870 census records.
Thanks Again Richard!
