Hi Doc, you may be the answer to my prayers. I have a family book that was written by a cousin of mine on our Smoot and Smith families. While reading this book I discovered that these people were slave holders. I have a list that includes 2 Mallattos and 99 Negros. Very few have a surname with them, But I can send them to you a few at a time with the data from the wills and etc. If you are interested. It covers from Virginia, Maryland, Ky., that I know right off and maybe more states as these people liked to migrate. I want to see these names put up someplace as I'm sure they all had families and somebody is looking for them. I would like to think that this is the right thing to do and now maybe I can get it done. Joyce Cook sunshine@emerytelcom.net
