  1. I have identified several enslaved from this list that are part of my family tree.
    My family members had been enslaved by Elizabeth Singleton then given to John Singleton and Robert Millwood Compton. It was R. Compton that took my family from Sumter to Madison Tenn then to Marengo county Alabama.
