I are glad to have others assist me with our this research. Still it is difficult to find relatives. Our people were once known only by their first names or sold as property before 1865. My earliest memory was the story told of my great great grand mother. My grand mother told me of this young girl, age 12 who was freed in 1865. She was singled out by the plantation mid-husbandry, who wanted to marry her. She became the mother of 14 children including my great grandmother.

Do you know someone who can help? Share this:

Hello there my name is Carl. I came across this page on a google image search. I'm looking for more info on the Williams family from Hale county Al. My grandmother who looks like the lady on the far right twin sister name is Girtha Mae Williams born in 1929. Her father name is David and his father is Dallas Williams. Before I came across your posting I found the 1880 census on Dallas saying that he was mulatto. So I was wondering if the man in the picture is Dallas Jr. Born around 1895 and if you have anymore pictures or info on the Williams.

1880 Census: Dallas Co., AL with NC Origins

Search using... People: Origins: Place of Birth or the 1940 CENSUS

To find slave records, you first have to locate a landowner and a location (state, town and county). There usually are multiple landowners in any given county or town–so try to be as specific as possible. Really pay attention to the stories passed down by your family, a little detail may go a long way.
The actual records may not list the names of the slaves but they will list the landowner, value of property and number of slaves owned. They may also include a general description of the slave. Slaves were viewed as property so there is a big difference between what you would find in a slave record and a document from a later date–such as a census. You can really see in the way slave records were kept that these slaves weren’t thought of, and didn’t count much other than the labor they could provide–their lives weren’t worth recording.

Your area may have a historical society to research these records in, some public libraries also have genealogical databases to research in.
The Black Belt African American Genealogical & Historical Society, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to the study and exchange of information and ideas among people interested in African American genealogy, family history and historic preservation in the twelve counties of Alabama's Black Belt Region--Bullock, Choctaw, Dallas, Greene, Hale, Lowndes, Macon, Marengo, Perry, Pickens, Sumter and Wilcox.

Hope this helps,

Hi Terazzah,
I'm wondering if the man in the picture is named Johnie Lee Williams and would his wife be named Essie Mae Williams? Just started a genealogy trace and this is where is had led me. Thinking this maybe my grandfather/grandmother
Thanks !!
