African-American Koonce's in east NC

Classification: Query

I am gathering information on my family and am searching for information about black Koonce's in Craven and Lenoir counties. The furthest back that I can go is to my great-grandfather Barfield Koonce who in the 1900 ensus was residing with his grandfather, James Koonce.

I know that in this area there was a large white Koonce family and I am convinced that my family must have been their slaves, so am also interested in any records of slaves of the white Koonce families in these counties.

Any help is greatly appreciated! My website is
