Your welcome. It may well be that he was from Liverpool, Alabama. Her descriptions in the book of freed slaves following the army past the Farrior place was very vivid. I like to look through the WPA slave narratives posted on Ancestry.com although some are also posted elsewehere like NARA which has pictures of the people interviewed. I find the stories generally true and not told anywhere else. But names are often badly spelled by the WPA interviewers. I guess its a combination of failing memories, lack of formal education and misunderstanding southern rural southern pronouncation of words.
I have found other websites which also have southern books with search engines allowing me ransack the collections for obscure information. There are a couple called Making of America. One in Michigan and the other at Purdue. They have both books and magazines from the 1800's.
