Douglas And Clemons Slave Data of SC







American Slave Codes

Hope in Their Eyes:

WHY SOUTH CAROLINA AND NOT NORTH CAROLINA
  I am taking my Douglas and Clemons research in the direction of South Carolina for more than one reason. Here are just a few of those reasons.
1. I cannot find any Douglas or Clemons slave owners in Anson County in 1850 and 1860. There were quite a few Douglas slave owners found in South Carolina in the bordering counties just south of Anson County NC.
2. I cannot find Henderson or any member of his immediate family living in any County of NC in 1870 except for one of their sons who was listed as being born in SC and in 1870 was found living in a part Richmond County NC that is now a part of Scotland County NC.
3. I found a family in 1870 Chesterfield South Carolina that corresponds almost exactly to Henderson's 1880 Anson County North Carolina family. One difference was that initials were used in the Chesterfield information of 1870. All of Henderson's family members that were living with him in 1880 were exactly and properly initialled in this family of 1870 Chesterfield. Even the ages were an exact match for a family that could not read, write or count. Another difference was that the 1870 mother and father's parents were listed as being born in South Carolina and the parents of the 1880 family were listed as being born in North Carolina. All through my research I have seen were parents were listed as being born in different states. It made me think that most exslaves didn't really know where there parents were born. But, since Chesterfield County South Carolina borders Anson County North Carolina is it possible that some areas of Chesterfield became Anson or vica versa because the boundary was not clear? What if the case is like I mentioned on the home page (statements from the slave narratives below). Henderson and Mourning being owned by two different slave owners. Henderson being owned by one of the many Douglas slave owners in Chesterfield County SC and Mourning being owned by the neighboring Meachum slave owners of Anson County NC. After slavery was ended Henderson would have surely united his family in a place where he was already established. Just a thought!
4. I have came across unconfirmed information that associates James Clemons with the areas in and around Darlington South Carolina.
5. My great grandmother Sarah Ann Clemons Douglas owned land in some part of South Carolina at the time of her death.
  My progress back to yesteryear has been stuck here for the past year. Maybe some of this past can be unraveled when I get the time to visit the South Carolina state archives and South Carolina County courthouses and/or public libraries.


THE BUYING AND SELLING OF AFRICANS AND AFRIKAN AMERICANS
  Click here for a link that gives much information on how the African and Afrikan American slaves were bought and sold in SC. It's truly amazing how in America a so called righteous group of people could see no wrong in treating fellow humans as their slave, personal property or inferior.


SOME DOUGLAS AND CLEMENTS SLAVE PURCHASES AND SALES OF SC
  This is some of the slave purchases and sales made by some of the Douglas and Clements/Clemons slave owners of Chesterfield, Chester, Darlington and other areas of South Carolina. This information was found on the website of the SC Dept. of Archives and History. Some of these sales and purchases were made by free people of color (Afrikan American). I am in the process of including some of the Douglas and Clemons slaveholders and their families from Chesterfield and Darlington counties SC. You will be surprised to see how our ancestors named their children after these slave masters and their families.

  On this site Scott Wild has abstracted a great amount of Slave information from some deed books of Darlington County SC. I was quite amazed at how much a slave owner used his slaves to secure a loan, cover a debt or even bond himself out of jail. It seems so strange how the slaves were so very valuable to these people yet some being treated worse than the masters family dog.

  Here is a link with information about some manumitted slaves from SC. And here is a link that shows the bill of sales for the skilled slaves that were in SC from 1774-1862. Information in both links are from the SC Department of Archives and History. Here is a site that has information on the slaveowning free blacks of Charleston SC, another with narratives and other information on slavery and finally this link that tells of a few of the SC slave laws and a lot of what the enslaved Afrikan American woman and her family were up against in their daily bid for survival, sanctity and inner peace.


SLAVE LIFE AS TOLD BY THE EX-SLAVE HIMSELF
  Below are three links that tells what people who were actually slaves has to tell about their lives as being slaves. From reading this and other information on slavery and to imagine the trials, tribulations and persecutions the African American slave or any slave had to endure is a nightmare. Worse than Elm street could ever be!
