Bladen County, NC 1790 Census - All Other Free

 

The Bladen County census taker in 1790 grouped the heads of household that were free colored at the end of the census. Unfortunately, this removes any ability to see proximity in the community to neighbors. On the list below, all of the individuals whose household included "all other free" were enumerated in the normal method, but beginning with John Blanks, the rest were grouped at the end.

North and South Carolina 1790 Census 

Paul Heinegg has done it again. For all of his selfless work, he gets a special genealogist blessing in Heaven! This time, he has listed all of the free persons of color in the 1790 SC census. His list can be found here:

 

http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/1790SCc.htm

 

And here is his list for the NC 1790 census.

 

http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/1790NCa.htm

 

Thanks to Kay Lynn Sheppard and Joy King for finding these resources and passing them on. I can stop extracting now since Paul has already done it for us!

 

Unfortunately, the Virginia census for 1790 was destroyed.

 

However, Paul has perused tax lists for each county to attempt to obtain the same type of information. His results can see found here:

Thanks to Kay Lynn Sheppard for extracting this information from her reference books.

Page 15 (Item #36) – [no date] Lords Proprietors grant a survey to Capt. Nicholas Thomas Jones for 1900 acres for transporting 38 persons. [Among those listed were] Betty an Indian woman, Ann a Mustee, Peter an Indian.

[I’m assuming that James Welsh is the Indian.]

 

Page 33 (Item 181) [Sept. 10, 1707] – Bath County. Tobias Knight an Indian, aged 12 years, of his own free will apprenticed himself to Charles Hopton until he is age 21.

Angel Awards

By Roberta Estes

 

Angel awards are given where there is a particularly unpleasant, taxing or important job that needs to be done and someone steps up to the plate and does it. I have three angel halos to bestow. I am forever grateful to our volunteers!

 

Kay Lynn Sheppard - Kay Lynn has been an exceptional resource to me over and over again, but a few months ago, she really stepped up to the plate and helped me reorganize the Hatteras Neighborhood project. This document is over 450 pages in length and over 20 meg in size. We can't e-mail it, it's so large. Kay Lynn added quite a bit of historical information to it as she reorganized it for me as well. This document holds data for each of the Hatteras families, such as deeds, wills, census records and more. 

 

Cathy Roberts - Cathy has made three mercy runs for me. The first was to the State archives where she discovered that the building she needed to visit was closed. Thankfully, my work was not the only reason she went to Raleigh! More recently, she went to Bertie County and photographed some deeds I desperately needed for the Tuscarora work I'm doing. In addition, she has been working at the archives with the Tyrrell County records on slaves and free people of color, and she has sorted out the free people of color records and sent them to me. As we know, Indians often show up as mulatto or free people of color. 

 

 

Jennifer Sheppard - Jennifer also made a trip to Bertie County for me. She made photocopies of deeds that I couldn't read from the photographs. You know, one way or another, we'll get these records that we so desperately need.

 

Soon, you'll see the results of this research in an upcoming newsletter. Between the efforts of all of us, we get a little closer every day to finding the descendants of colonists and better understanding the history of eastern North Carolina in the process.

 

What an educational journey this has been!
