Hello,

I was wondering if you could look up Thomas Jefferson "T.J." Penningston and Henry J. Peck.

They enslaved my ancestors and I wonder if there might be slave information on file.

Yes in fact Henry J. Peck did. I found nothing of Penningston. This is what I found out about Peck:

Citizens of Warren County, Mississippi., certify that the following negroes belonging to H.J. PECK: PHILIP, JACK, DUBLIN, BELFAST, ISAAC, LEWIS, CHARLES, DIVERS, PHILLIS, RACHEL, SALLY, LIZZA, PENER, CHERRY, RHODES, and MARY, so long as they remained in the State were of good character and they were not removed for any crime ... 9 January 1830 - Warren County, Mississippi. /s/ J.B. STEVEN, FRANCIS PATTERSON, WM. GILLESPIE
27 March 1829 - HENRY J. PECK and LAMINDA M ' PECK of the
County of Warren, Mississippi, and DITTO L.NUTTALL, sell negro known as QUACK on Sicily Island, of the estate of WM ' M. SMITH, deceased, for value received in the name of a negro called JACK, formerly owned by ZECHARIAH KIRKLAND, deceased, of Sicily Island, Catahoula Parish, La.

Can you respond with information on Patience (Harris) Mecom Ward, the husbands who preceded her in death and her son Jesse and daughter-in-law Clarissa (Hair) Ward - later Finley. Jesse Ward was dead before 1850.
