Dear Ms. Richardson,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
As records of enslaved people were often listed as property or estate transactions, we suggest that you search Arkansas Probate Records, 1817-1979, and request a search from the Arkansas State Archives or the Calhoun County Circuit Clerk for records mentioning the enslaved people you seek. We also suggest that you contact the University of Arkansas to search their collection of the Berry, Dickinson, Peel Family Papers.
You also may find the Records of the Ante-Bellum Southern Plantations to be useful in your search. This is a microfilm set of manuscripts dealing primarily with the pre-1865 period from several repositories throughout the south. The accompanying Index to Records of Ante-Bellum Southern Plantations by Jean L. Cooper helps identify specific collections in which related material in a given location may be found. (Can access portions of the Index on GoogleBooks) All of these collections are microfilmed and are available for service both at the Library of Congress and many other institutions.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
I found an 1860 slave schedule with 20 people but no names are listed, only ages.
This was found on familysearch.org. Family search is a free website you just need to register to search.
Do you have any names that you can give of persons you are interested in finding?
