AL ~ PERTEET - Tuscaloosa County
In Response To: Alabama: Free Black Population ()


Solomon Perteet, who operated a store in Tuscaloosa, was another well-known free black. When Sir Charles Lyell visited Tuscaloosa in 1846, he was amazed at Perteet's accumulation of wealth from his real estate transactions.

Many of Alabama's free blacks owned slaves. Seven Chastang families in Mobile owned twenty-seven slaves in 1850, and two other Mobile free blacks owned thirty slaves.
