Masons and Manumissions

Collatinus Mason purchased land from Martha G. Warren along Old Stage Road in 1873-4. He became one of the early African-American preachers performing marraiges in the Dinwiddie County. I am trying to figure out where Collatinus came from? Was he always a free Black or was he manumitted? If anyone has lists of manumitted slaves in their family history that might contain his name, I would like to see it.
I am also interested in Martha G. Warren and her mother, Nancy Roberts. They seem to be large landholders in Dinwiddie until about 1880.
If anyone has information about any of the above persons, please contact me.

Thank You
