AfriGeneas Slave Research Forum

Devereux Slave Community, Texas

I am a retired historian from Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. Currently I am engaged in research on the Devereux Slave Community in Montgomery and Rusk Counties, Texas from 1841 to 1861. The members of the DSC belonged to John William Devereux or Julien Sidney Devereux who came to Texas in 1841, first to Montgomery County and then to Rusk County in 1845. At the time of the Civil War there were approximately 80 individuals listed as slaves on the Monte Verdi Plantation. I am trying to establish family lineage and family units. If you have any info I'd really like to correspond with you and certainly any info that pertains to your interests which I might have come across I'd be glad to share. Thanks, Jo Snider
