According the 1870 Census my great X 2 grandfather, Jubellee which could be a incorrectly misspelled for Jubilee / Juba / Juber was 41 years old, thus estimating his birth year around 1829. Since his name is missing from the will of William Austin this excludes the Gilder Plantation. Is this your family?

Ironically since my last post I also found an index of land documents issued in 1873. A man with the last name of Garrett, first name possibly Thomas, sold 45 acres to Juba Austin and 2 more acres in 1874 to a Juber Austin.

Thank you for your quick and kind response. You were very helpful.
