Black Ancestors-Lancaster, Bynum, Hinton,Mercer, Hines, Lawrence & Dawes Families

Surnames: Lancaster, Bynum, Hinton, Lawrence, Dawes, Hines, Williams, Staton
I am seeking descendants of the following black families from the Edgecombe, Nash, and Wilson County, North Carolina area:

Tom and Mariah (Hines) Lancaster
Anderson & Morning Bynum
John and Martha (Lancaster) Hinton
Andrew "Handy" and Georgianna (Bullock) Lawrence
Ruben & Rebecca Dawes
Mercer and Hines (slave names) Family Members
Fred and Ellen (Lancaster) Staton
George and Zillie Williams

Most of these folks were alive in the late 1800's and lived in Cokey Township #13 (Edgecombe County, NC) and the surrounding areas. Please contact me concerning "lost" family members. I have a great deal of information about these families. Most of the parents were born slaves and then raised large families in the area. Some of the children disappear from the census records bewteen 1880 and 1900 when they were young adults. We assume they migrated to other area of the United States.
