  1. My oldest relative that I can trace back via the 1870 census was born in Knoxville, AL, in Greene County. Her name was Mariah Wilson (born in 1829) and she married a man named Jack Wilson. So, I’m assumed they were owned by someone named Wilson. Anyone know of slave owners in that county named Wilson? Thanks for any input!

  2. My grandma was born on a plantation in Greenville, Alabama in 1936 from Louise Davidson and John Smith. Any information

  8. I am researching the Hough families (African American) from Bullock and Pike County. Th earliest

    ancestors were Thomas & Celie, born in GA between 1810-1820, and from what I gathered, had six

    especially for people of color.
