We are researching mulatto families in Covington County, Alabama. We have a special interest in the Pea Ridge Community of the Conecuh River Township in Covington and Conecuh Counties, Alabama. These areas had a large percentage of mulatto slaves prior to the Civil War. After slavery, these people settled together and married.
We descend from the “Jackson” surname. Many of our descendants lived in Covington and nearby counties before the Civil War. After the Civil War most “Jackson’s” continued to live in Covington well into the late 1930’s. Our search also extends to Escambia and Oskaloosa counties in Florida, where many residents from Covington traveled in search of employment, while others went to Ohio.
We would love to correspond with others that are researching mulatto families from these areas with the surnames below.
Thank you in advance for your invaluable help with our family quest.
