This info may be not be in the time frame you're looking for, but I'm posting my Braddock notes that include any references to African-American Braddocks.I can't tell you which of the slaves from the early records may have kept the Braddock name, but it's a lead.
Tippah County Heritage v.2.comp. and ed. by Tommy Covington
This book has an extraordinary section on African-American Braddocks and descendants to the 1960s or 70s, most are articles on the descendants of slave Joseph Braddock.I read it in the library there and regret terribly that I didn't copy it; it was very descriptive and insightful about their ancestor's experiences.Absolutely worth writing for xeroxes.The librarian
was very nice and I imagine will send copies. There are side mentions of Braddocks in other articles.
My research shows [comments of mine in straight brackets like these]:

p. 402Estate of Margaret Hooker [film very bad]
[Margaret Hooker was the mother-in-law of Adam Braddock.Her maiden name was probably Young, she married George Leak who died in SC Laurens, then married Edwin Hooker who also died.She came to Tippah and lived with her daughter Elzire (often written Eliza) and her husband Adam Braddock.He is listed as the owner of Margaret Hooker's slaves in 1850 schedules above.This estate identifies them and the purchasers.I have not tracked them further]:

Lenord Cox m10-20 [maybe in same household?]
[re above household, these names are not in the fairly well researched descendants of the Braddocks who came to MS, I had a feeling I didn't mark down their race, so they may be relevant, especially based on the 1878-88 tax lists below.There are marriages for Peter, Isaac and Minnie (USGenWeb shows them).This is definitely not Rebecca Braddock, wife of Jeremiah S., they are listed below with correct ages and children.This whole source needs to be extracted again, my notes are just not descriptive enough.]

Winston Braddock B [black, no numbers]

Richard Braddock B
[again, I'm pretty sure this is one household, but I can't say definitively, sorry.But now that I look over how I did my notes, the family on p. 17 above would be white probably.]

[Only the last two of these, Mary and J.S. are listed on the GenWeb Tippah county pages that have this census, if they only listed the whites, then the family on p. 17 could be black - am I confused enough now!]

[Nathan Braddock in the above indictment must be the son of John W. Braddock and Ruthie Nabors.Bobbie McDowell, the Braddock pro of Tippah, has noted on her records that "Nathan was shot by Allen Luker as he came out of church at Pisgah Methodist Esp.[sic].South-old Ruckersbille, Tippah Co. MS"]
You can get birth dates, 1874-1900 for Braddocks, of Tippah residents (extracted from draft registration in 1917) on the USGenWeb Archives.These indicate race.There are lots of other records for Tippah on this site, marriages and tons of the cemeteries.
I can give you the locations of the lands of Stephen and Adam Braddock where some of the above would have lived. I also know there is still a gentleman living on that old Braddock property there, descended from African-American Braddocks; the people at the courthouse knew of him, but I couldn't find him at home when I visited and researched there a few years ago.Anyway, Stephen's lands were in Sections 21 and 28 of Township 3 Range 4 East, purchased 1848 and sold in 1871.Adam's were in Section 17 of same township and range, purchased 1845-1848 and sold 1869 through 1875.I can give you further specifications on the land locations if you want.I cannot find my map of the county, but Section 17 is around the county road 506 where 509 & 507 are, and Sections 21 and 28 are where county roads 515 and 556 are.
Good luck in your research!
