Hello Fellow Researchers,
I was so excited to find my 4th great grandmother, Louisa Elvira Durlow/Durloo in the St. Croix Free Colored Census - Christensted Register of Free Colored Women 1831-1832. She is number 372, towards the bottom of the page:http://interactive.ancestry.com/3740/31557_217992-00048/2574...
As always, this has left me with additional questions that I am needing some assistance with.
1) What does it say in the "Farve" column? I believe this is race/color, and the Ancestry index says its "Castice," which I believe is an error. Is anyone familiar with these records or abbreviations that can provide some insight?
2) There is a date of 13 Feb (?) 1827. I believe this is an emancipation date? My big question here is - Now what? Are there other records I can go to to get more information about this?
Thank you greatly, in advance, for any and all replies!
