Have an ancestor death record stating that she was born a slave.  Claims born in Pomfret CT but might be Pomfret VT.  Last name is Mero but I havent located any Slave owner records with that last name, nor any families with that last name in the area.  Any help on how to handle this obstacle would be helpful.

Thanks in advance
