Information on Slave Owners in and around Hampton, SC

Posted: 20 Dec 2011 2:21PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Cohen, Lawton, Coen
I am doing research for my wife's family. She can trace her great, great grandfather (Richard C. Cohen b 8/10/1864), he is the son of Addie H. Cohen(b 1832) and her "owner". I suspect, this to be John Lawton (Jericho Plantation, Born 1830 D. 1908).

I have very little experience research slavery related records etc and any help or advice is welcomed.

Addie H. Cohen is the daughter of Annie Miah Cohen (b appx. 1819)

Does anyone have records of slaves owned by John Lawton? I know they kept track but haven't ever seen this kind of list with my own eyes.

We suspect the surname Cohen was adopted based on Cohen's Bluff Landing which was a nearby location where I believe slaves were sold.
