Thank you very much for the information. I am appreciative and it is extremely helpful to myself. My Holley relatives were/are of African Ascent; they were enslaved in Bertie County, North Carolina. Upon searching of course I will have to look up records such as " Bill of Sale," " Tax Records," "Real Estate Records," "Court Records," "Insurance Records," " Possibly Census Records," and also "Wills." Again I thank you very much for the information it is certainly helpful indeed. It is interesting to know about the land, quite interesting.
