My Black History Month: Grandpa Adam Moorer

February 2nd

Just five years after the “official end of the enslavement of Africans in America”, my 3x Great Grandpa Adam Moorer who lived in Lowndes County, Alabama had a personal estate of an estimate value of $300 according to the 1870 United States Federal Census. Examples of personal estate included things like livestock, household goods, carriages, etc. Today, Grandpa Adam’s estimate $300 personal estate value would be worth $6,293.38 based on Consumer Price Index.

Did you ancestors/relative own in real estate or have any persona property in 1870?
