Reply to "Did Black People Own Slaves?"

Some of my ancestors appear in Woodson's book. One collateral ancestor, Tom 'Free Tom' Smith had 14 enslaved people including his second wife, Charity and their three children. His first wife, Charity was my 6th great grandmother was the mother to his daughters Sarah and Malinda.  The second wife Charity and the children were freed by the state in 1852 after a trial regarding his estate. I presume his other enslaved people were sold.
