I found some information that might help someone in their
research. On the Rusk County, Texas website, there is information
on a slave owner by the name of Taylor E. Kennard. The title is Kennard Slaves,
Age of slaves are recorded in Papa's Book. Papa was Taylor Elijah Kennard(born in
Picken County, AL) It contains the name of the slaves, birth year and place with death year.
There is a copy of document on the site.
