    1. Re: [KY-AFRICAAMER] Clay County Garrard genealogy
    2. Quan Pruitt
    3. Carolyn, KY started early birth and death records about 1852 before the federal law started that each state had to record this information. Other states that started before that time are VA 1643, NC 1720 and IN 1834. Now when it came to recording slave birth and death it was as simple as whenever he/owner went to town/county courthouse and if he took the time to do it. These records can be found on the county seat level and state archives level. If you are lucky the local genealogy society has transcribed them and are for sale. KY has a wealth of information on that. Now after the war it depended on the midwife/doctor to record the birth. If there wasn't a midwife or doctor then it depended on the parents and if they had to pay to record the birth. Not all the time it was recorded on time so look a some years ahead for a delayed birth record. KY publish all birth and death records in a set of books per year for the whole state. It will give you the cert. number to order a copy. You might want to get in touch with the Owensboro library they have microfilm of original copies of birth and death records. These would be unofficial copies(no stamp). KY kept good records of the colored schools of all students. These records can have information about parents and grandparents also interesting information especially around harvest time. KY is very unusual in the fact that most slave took on the owners last name. The county that I am from it is about 90% that took the slave owners name. KY exported more slaves then imported slaves into the state. But very few owners would acknowledge that they had a child by a slave. Everyone in the area/town knew, they protected them but to publicly acknowledge is another subject but it did happen. Your research has brought you to the wall. Conditions in KY are based on North Carolina and Virginia laws. You will have to research the possible owner family trees in KY(Family line, wills, appraisal, inventory and etc.) to find more information on there slaves. Slaves are money so Follow the Money! You will have to find Daniel Garrard's emancipation in court records. This record will give the last owners name. He would not of stayed in the area(law/influential owner) without a bond from his last owner which is important to find. This would be on a local level. If Daniel owned a lot of slaves then search court records in Clay county for his name -Sale, mortgage, land, will and etc. A freeman would use the law to his advantage. The slaves Daniel owned are mostly likely his family but not necessary so. Remember the time period which is to prosper own land and slaves to work it. Records on line have come a long way but at some point in time you will have to make that trip to find what is not on line. With the major online site some of the local societies have closed. Two things to remember -1. Not everything on line is fact. Use it as a tool to find the original document and order it. 2. Transcribing is in the eye of the person who is transcribing. Images/microfilm are only as good as the person who is making it.

I have traced back the Garrard line this far: Father - Robert - Grand -Matt or Jm, great grand William and gg grand -also William born about 1865. I see there is a free black slave holder on the 1860 slave census - Daniel Garrard. I am thinking that there is most likely a connection there- that William could even be his son. I have done extensive research on Maryland black history and free blacks and assume conditions in Kentucky were similar- that the slaves Daniel owned were most likely his family. As the surname Garrard is not a common one for African Americans am also wondering if there is perhaps a tie in to the grandson of the first governor. Discovered he was in state legislature representing that area and he was a general in Union army. So perhaps he freed his slaves and they took his name??? Would appreciate any information you could provide about this family and my suppositions? Is there any information on Kentucky free blacks? Also are there manumission papers there at county level or in state archives? Can i access onlne? Can u suggest any other avenues I can pursue? Any other county records for Daniel that might show William as son?

Ky. genealogy         http://www.mykentuckygenealogy.com/ky_county/boo.htm   Boone co. history with the following excerpt......   "Relative to its population in the years preceding the Civil War, Boone County had a fairly large slave population. In 1800, the Boone County population consisted of 1194 whites, 325 slaves and 15 free blacks. Local families generally owned less than ten slaves and master and slave often worked side by side on Boone County farms. Although poor treatment of slaves as well as the obvious burden of enforced servitude is a documented fact, some slaves in Boone County appear to have been considered trusted members of the family. Skilled black workers crafted many historic homes, barns and outbuildings in Boone County."            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rabbit_Hash   Info. on Rabbit Hash, Ky,             http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~kyboone/verona_1883.htm map of Verona, Boone Co.---Highlighted in yellow near the Verona Post Office are a few families named "Sleet", but I see no Sheet.

In my own slaveholding family history, the slaveholder's will showed the relationships of those he held in slavery. "Janes's girl Sally to be given to my son,...." ect.   In that 1860 Slave Schedule I sent you earlier, it listed a man and a woman in the mid twenties who are most likely Alice's parents, since she is only 4 years old.     The best of luck to you and your research!
