    Run away slaves were frequently sold South so you should check run away slave advertisements if you have not already done so. UVA has some online and you can search historical newspapers through Genealogybank. I suspect there may be records for the U.S. Customs House at the Port of Norfolk, but if they survive I do not know their location.

    Take a look under our Related Resources tab. The three websites: Afro-Louisiana History and Genealogy, The Genealogy Center, and Waterways to Freedom, might provide some information.

Howdy, Stranger!
