Savage family Accomack/Northampton

Not sure if anyone is still responding on this board...

My 3rd great grandfather was named Kiah Savage. Born in 1835 in Northampton Co., VA. He was married to Margaret "Peggy". In the 1860 census they were free blacks. I don't know if they were born free. Their second son was named Hezekiah. I'm thinking that maybe Kiah's name was also Hezekiah. I'm trying to find out if the surname was taken from their old masters ( the famous "Ensign" or "Carpenter" Savage ?) or if he was actually a blood relation. My great grandfather could easily have passed for white. I have been unable to find any slave list that mention his name. If anyone has any info on the Savages' of Accomack/Northampton please contact me. Thank you.
