Re: Slaves of Heidelbergs

Dear LuLu,

I guess we are in the same boat. Maybe the books or census will help us. Some census, I think 1870 and afterwards, show slave masters and their slaves and maybe alfred wasn't white and a slave after all. Let me know if you could get a hold to some of this information. I strongly believe all the slaves took on the name Heidelberg and all from Africa. If so, I have a lot more researching to do. The oldest black Heidelberg I have is a man born in 1870 I think which is about when the census started counting them.

Stay in touch,
