Slaves in Family Bibles

I wonder how many people have the names of slaves in their Family Bibles? I wonder how many people even know that slaves were sometimes included in the slave holder's Family Bible?

Here are the names of persons recorded in our Great Grandfather John Cross' Family Bible over 150 years ago . . . <>

During our research we have uncovered the names of thousands of slaves. Identifying these slaves and publishing our findings helps others who have black family history find their ancestors. Among these named slaves there were 123 within our own family. They can be found here . . . <>

We would love to help other's identify their black family ancestry so if you have information to add, feel free to include it here, attached to our blog.
