J.R. Feemster in Noxubee County 1840

Hello everyone,
I must be part of the The Moving Clan. I am trying to research the Feemster surname but came to a wall. My mother was a Feemster. Her parents were Charle and Mattie Feemster. My ancestors were slaves. Now, don't turn your back on me. I have found a J. R. Feemster in Noxubee County, MS on the 1840 census with a wife, and two children. J. R. Feemster died in the Civil War. There is a monument with the name of soldiers that fought in the Civil War in Macon MS. J. R. name is on there. I don't know where he came from, SC or NC. He is the only one I can connect with my Feemster from Noxubee County, MS. I know many slaves took their last name from their owners. Did any of the Feemster families kept records of their slaves?
You can get a copy of the Moving Clan by Mary E. Feemster from the Library of Congress. There is a web site for the Library of Congress.
Lets share the wealth of information to find lost trees or branches.
Thank you
