Charles Molton 1841 TN-1945 Lancaster PA
Looking for info on this man of color. Born into slavery in TN, joined the CO A 24th US Colored Inf and lived/died in Lancaster PA. Since slaves took the last name of their owners upon freedom and there's only one Molton family in TN (Meigs Co) in 1850, I'm guessing he was a slave to them. It's headed by a Noble N Molton, 44. Noble's occ was listed as "farmer". And there's two Moulton families in TN in 1850, one in Rhea Co & one in Williamson Co. Both families headed by a Thomas Moulton. I'm looking for ancestors or parents of Charles Molton. Any help appreciated.
