Slaves of Peter R. Davis

List of the Slaves, and their ages, as well as known on the 1st of January 1850 belonging to PETER R. DAVIS Estate also those born up to 1st November 1850.  I am supplementing some of the names ** with info from Cohabitation Marriage records as well as from my own personal research of the family of TRIP & ESTHER DAVIS who are among those included in this list and marked in red.  Of note is the fact that this was where the family was first split up, some going to different slaveowners. Many of these slaves took on the DAVIS surname, however, some of may have taken POWELL, KEARNEY, PITCHFORD, FOOTE, WILLIAMS and there were possibly others that further research may be found by those interested in finding their own families from these records. Of note is the fact that some of them had surnames in these records, but I advise you to do your research since they may not have kept those names after the end of slavery. The former slaves that I found were living in either Warren or Franklin Counties by 1870, some of their marriages can be found in the Franklin Co. Freedmen's Marriages and the Warren Co. Marriages 1865-1900.
