  5. Hello,

    I’m looking for slave owners named Britt who lived in Alabama. I would like a list of the names of their slaves. I know of a Matthew Britt, born 1795, Virginia. He lived in Barbour County, and also had land in Putnam County Georgia. He died in about 1854. I do not know the names of his slaves. I would also like to know the name of Matthew Britt’s parents. My 2x Great-grandfather was George Britt. He was born about 1844 in Alabama and wound up in Harrison County Texas by about 1850. He died in Harrison County Texas in 1927.

    Thank you…
