Slaves in Georgia

Surnames: BUTLER,
I have a partial listing of slaves that were sold at auction in Savannah, Georgia on March 2 & 3, 1859; this was known as "The Weeping Time". I was able to track my family back to Pierce Butler's plantations (Butler's Island and Hampton Point Plantation [St. Simon's Island], both off the coast of southern Georgia). If anyone is able to track their family back to these plantations, please let me know, I have lots of information for you.

Surnames above are some of the names that slaves took after Emancipation.
