Some Slaveholders and Their Slaves, Union Parish, Louisiana, 1839-1865

This is also a very good reference book.  The book is organized into three general sections. The first is an abstract from the 1860 census listing the slaveholders; the second has abstracts of estate and other records concerning slaves; and third and largest section has abstracts of slave conveyances.   It also includes an index of slaveholders and slaves.  The book can be very useful in documenting residence on specific dates.
