I found researching my primarly white Anglo-Saxon family tree including but not limited to Beamon/Beeman/Beman that provisions were made in their wills for their slaves. Some were listed by first name only, some were listed by family name, some were set free upon death of owner, some given to relatives or sold to pay debits. So CHECK YOUR WILLS for clues!
Not proud that my Quaker ancestors fell from grace and took to owning slaves but hopefully AJ project really shows we ARE all ONE family. Verification of my ancestry.com sources is a slow process but inputting new relatives daily (IT'S A HUGE FAMILY). Stay tuned! DNA testing soon to come.
Not all of the below names and counties inputted to wikitree as of yet but working hard to do so. Currently 34 step from AJ.
North Carolina family names: Beamon, Draughon, Vaughn, Babb, Jackson, and Clark.
North Carolina Counties: Sampson, Bertie, Wake, Wayne, Cumberland, Mingo, Albemarle, Buncombe, Duplin, Columbus, Edgecombe, Johnston, Burke, Anson, Caswell, Orange, Mecklenburg, Chatham, Chowan, Iredell, Balden
