1860 Slave Schedule Kingston Parish, South Carolina

For unknown reasons, the names some of the enslaved persons were included. In the 1870 census a the family group is found in Dogwood Neck, Horry, South Carolina:

Maria Chestnut, 1828 (15b16 Black Female 1838) I think the census taker mistook her age in 1860
John Chestnut, 1852 (15b18 Black Male 1850) Jack is a nickname for John
Samuel Chestnut, 1853 (15b19 Black Male 1852)
Solomon Chestnut, 1855 (15b20 Black Male 1854)
Daniel Chestnut, 1857 (15b21 Black Male 1858)
Julius Chestnut, 1859 (actually born 1861)

Ransom has probably married and lives elsewhere, but he is not yet found on the 1870 census. He could have also changed his name.
