Hi, This may be a long shot - but maybe if you can't use the info you'll come across someone who can & pass it along.
A couple of years before my grandmother passed away, she gave me a bible that had belong to her mother.I am not sure exactly how it connects to our family (trying to figure that out), but there is a James A. Trice listed as & below that it states "negroes ages" and there is a list of names & dates.My gr gr grandfather was born in York Co. Carolina & his father owned slaves (which makes me cring to write, I have to admit).They were Kerrs who came down from PA to NC/SC.The family ended up in Mississippi.I also have connections in Alabama & Tennessee - Langford, Burleson, Hall are the main associated names.
I would really love to find the descendents of the people listed in the bible.In case it may be of use to you or anyone you connect with, here is what is written in the bible:
