I am trying to help a friend of slave descent track his ancestor, specifically Sawnee (Sawney, Sauney, or Sonny) who was willed to Joel Early in 1787 by his father, Jeremiah. If someone could look for this slave in the following records of Joel Early that would be so helpful:
*** 8 Nov 1787 Deed with Elijah Kirtley ***
23 Nov 1789 Deed with Charles Hammond ***
15 Apr 1790 Gifted slave to his niece ***1790 A possible deed with Elija Craig (may be recorded in Orange County)***
1791 Deed with Adam Banks (this one is key)***
31 Mar 1791 Deed with William Kirtley***
Thank you for any help. Much appreciated!
