African American Census Schedules Online
1866 Alabama State Census Colored Population
This web page shown below this table, is copied from:
http://www.afrigeneas.com/aacensus/al/1866Sumter_2.htm
Around 1990, I was originally told by Catherine McKnight Web 1907-1996, the granddaughter of William Thomas McKnight, that when W.T. McKnight rode off to the Civil War in 1863 to join the Confederate calvary, he took with him his Black man servant named "Buck".

Then I found in this 1866 Colored Census that a Buck McKnight was listed with three other McKnights, Lucindia, Betty, and Frank.

Then in the 1870 U.S. Census for Sumter County, Alabama, under the names of Francis and Susan McKnight, the parents of W.T. McKnight, are 10 blacks listed. Three of them are the three McKnight children listed below.

Buck McKnight - not listed in 1870 US Census.
Lucindia McKnight - 4 years latter in the 1870 US Census, she is 14
Betty McKnight - 4 years latter in the 1870 US Census, she is 10
Frank McKnight - 4 years latter in the 1870 US Census, he is 8
F.M. McKnight - I am not sure if this is the slave Francis that was mentioned in Washington Hutchinson's 1845 will. It mentions Francis as being the female slave that had been previously given by Washington Hutchinson to his daughter Susan Ann Hutcherson McKnight.
