Hi! Just curious if were able to locate your relatives on any documents after emancipation (1865) untl the first census documenting the newly freed slaves. I did see many names of coloreds who registered to vote in Walker/Madison County, TX on the 1867-1869 Texas Voters registration. just looking up various ways to fins relatives before the 1870 census in the small window frame of 1865-1869.
Let me know. I beleive the Wyser family owned some of my relatives and will be looking for wills. The family may have rented land to them that they were living on in the 1870 census. Not sure at all. That would be a big help..
