I'm having a very hard time finding out the maiden name of my great-great-grandmother TENER ENOCH of Alamance or Caswell County, North Carolina. Her husband was BEDFORD ENOCH. I know nothing about her, who her family was, nothing except that she married Bedford and had 4 children.
I got the death certificate of one of her daughters (1923) and the space for the Maiden Name was filled out as "Unknown." I can't find a death certificate for Tener even though she died in Ohio after 1920.
Now that got me to wondering if there were black freedmen who didn't adopt a surname after Emancipation. I am speculating that Tener took her husband's surname when they got married.
Is this possible? Let me know your experiences with this, especially with slave women.
