I am inquiring about Ned Stamper who is my great great grandfather. I was wondering if there is any information in regards to where he was from in Virginia and also his wife Caroline who is my great great grandmother. Although they were slaves I am hoping that someone could provide me with information of where and when Peyton Lawrence purchased my ancestors or how did he gained them?
I am posting the information below in hope that you can guide me in the right direction either with information of tax documents, property documents etc.
Ned birth:1825 Virginia,? United States residence: 1880Haywood,? Chattooga,? Georgia
Caroline birth:1835 South Carolina,? United States residence: 1880Haywood,? Chattooga,? Georgia
