Slave Name Roll Project: Estate Record of Peter G Evans

The Slave Name Roll Project's objective is to record information about named slaves whenever and where ever they may be found so that African-American genealogists and family historians may break through the wall that is the 1870 census. The project was originally maintained on Schalene Dagutis's blog, Tangled Roots and Trees but now it has it's own blog. You can learn more about the project here.

While conducting research on my 3rd great grandfather Mortimer Mitchell, I came across the names of slaves listed in the estate record for Col Peter G Evans. You can read more about who Col Peter G Evans was in my post Mortimer Mitchell Worked on the Lands of Peter G. Evans.

To assist folks who are looking for their ancestors, I am sharing these names here.

  3. Andrea, thanks for your blogpost. I also have a 3rd great-grandfather named Mortimer Mitchell from Dinwiddie County, VA. He also had a son named Mortimer. Some of our Mitchells ended up in NC. Our Mortimer was a slaved descendant probably from a white Mitchell slave owner from Petersburg or Richmond, VA. We tested a Mitchell male cousin. I wonder if our Mitchells may be related. Please feel free to contact me at rrbbgenealogy@gmail.com .

    1. I wonder the same thing too. I have been doing research on the family of Alexander Mitchell of New Bern, NC. who was a wealthy merchant and had property in New Bern proper as well as in the surrounding area in Craven County. I think he probably was the owner of my Mortimer. I will see if I can trace his family back out to Virginia. We'll see what happens. If I find a connection, you'll be the first to know. Thanks for stopping by :)

  4. Have to love those estate files with the lists of names, sometimes ages. The handwriting is so clear here.
