There is a book, however I cannot find it.

Cunningham, Glenn. "The Hidden Lives of Waverly Plantation", 1990. This is info from Cunningham, Person County, NC plantation.
... It contains a fairly extensive list of Names of Negro Families , lists of slaves and names of free black owners of slaves in 1790, 1830 and 1860.

I am trying to locate this book. If you find it, please inform.

Thanking you in advance,
Betty
