Evan Jones(Slave records)

Classification: Query
I have listed several post on Evan Jones and some have given me information on his family.

What I want to know is if anyone has information on his business dealing especially his slaves.

Everyone on this site is doing history investigation and I am doing the same.

I know that my family started with a slave named Somerset/Somersit Jones and he was a slave of Evan Jones. He was listed in Evan's Will in 1751(given to Evan's son Charles Jones) Somersit along with his son Somerset Jr were listed with the Jones family in 1816 New Bern court records(Lovick Jones estate). Both Somerset's were listed in Lovick's inventory of 1795.

Some of the Jones family left NC and moved to Tenn including Somerset Jr(have traced my family line down to me through Somerset Jr in TN) Don't know if the older Somerset died after 1816 or if he ended up with another Jones family member.

I want to know if anyone has information on Evan Jones dealing with his slaves among his family members.

Anything will help
