Gist Settlement-Brown County, OH

Looking for decendents of the former slaves belonging to Mr Samuel Gist.

Mr Gist died in his native England (1815). He freed his slaves in his will, and had them sent to Brown County, OH. They arrived there in 1820.

Former slaves chose sur names of HUTSON, TOLER AND LAWSON. Would appreciate any information on those names. Thank you.
