Dolly Johnson, age 30, opened a Freedmen's Bank account in Charleston, South Carolina on April 16, 1872. On her application, she stated that she was born on Drayton Hall Plantation, Ashley River, Charleston, South Carolina. Her Freedmen's Bank record contains more information about Dolly Johnson and her family:
Her husband's name was Toby. He was born in Africa. There were no children listed in Dolly's bank account record. Dolly's brother was Daniel (no surname listed) and her sister was Nancy (no surname listed). Her residence was 420 King Street in Charleston. Dolly's occupation was Washing.
Both April and Mary were listed as deceased in Dolly's bank account record, dated April 16, 1872.
Toby Johnson's Freedmen's Bank record, dated April 16, 1872, agrees with the information in Dolly's record: Toby's wife is Dolly, his birthplace is Africa, his residence is 420 King Street. We also learn that Toby was 60 in 1872. He does not know the names of either of his parents.
Neither Dolly's nor Toby's Freedmen's Bank records have an account number listed.
