Slaves of Heidelbergs
Posted by: Qiana Heidelberg Date: October 18, 2000 at 10:34:01

Do you know how an African American such as myself get a last name such as Heidelberg? My grandfather is from Shubuta,MS and his appearance does not appear to have a trace of Caucasian in him. He looks African American to the bone. Did all slaves take on their master's last name? When was it legal for ever legal for a master to marry a slave? Or, could there be another explaination for this? Also is there a way I could find names of the slaves some of the Heidelberg masters owned?
