  • Note:
    "According to a letter from George Allison, the grandson of Dr. William and Sarah Bouchelle, Charlotte Knowles was one of their family's slaves and she worked for Sarah Bouchelle for many years. This seems to be confirmed by the 1860 Slave Schedule, which lists the Bouchelles as owning six slaves, and one was a 32 year old mulatto female (according to various sources, Charlotte was probably born in the late 1830s). The letter goes on to say that the Knowles lived behind Grindstone Schoolhouse in a log cabin -- the same area where Annie would later guild her restaurant, the Wayside Inn." (GSCM Reporter 29/1, Jan/Feb 2010, p. 12).

    Some Former Slaves and Their Masters
    Robert S. Davis, Jr.
    * * * *
    Listed below are the names of former slaves and their former owners from
    some extremely obscure National Archives records. An unscrupulous group of men after the Civil War promoted the false hope that Congress would award pensions to ex-slaves. Over 2,000 pages of material from investigations of this Ex-Slave Mutual Relief Bureau & Pension Association can today be found in Entry 21 of Record Group 15 Records of the Veterans Administration.
