Friend of Friends Friday is a blogging prompt from Geneabloggers to upload records of enslaved ancestors, whether they are your own or not, and to transcribe them to your blog. These records are from the estate of Jacob Barnes, who was born on 23 December 1759 in North Carolina, and who died May of 1840, at Boon Hill, Johnston County, North Carolina. The records show the land divisions, and also the disrupted family groups of the enslaved families, that the children and grandchildren of Jacob Barnes were given after his death by court decree. It was copied from the Barnes surname file at the Wayne County Public Library, in Goldsboro, NC, on 12 April 2005. You can click on the images to enlarge them. The record starts on page two, at the number 46.
Good luck researching!
