Question about land purchases by freedmen

I'm researching a Black man in Franklin County, North Carolina, who at his death in 1899 owned a farm, according to court records that settled his estate a couple of years later.

Special Issue Theme: Tropical Materialisms: poetics, possibilities, practices

Tropical Materialisms concur on at least three things: humans are always entangled with non-human/material agents; such entanglement is necessary for any creative act to take place; and these same entanglements allow us to interrogate and re-evaluate preconceived notions about the world - from built and natural environments to the fabric of time-and-space.[i]
