List of destitute freed people transported from Charlotte, North Carolina to Yazoo, Mississippi by P. G. Carter on train furnished by the Bureau

of Refugees, Freedmen and Abandoned Lands.

This undated list can be found on roll M834.28. It does not give the ages nor wages of the one hundred and four (104) men, women and children. The list is signed by P. G. Carter. In transcribing this document, I reversed the order of names - i.e., listing the last or surname first - in order to make searching for a particular name easier.
