Cohabitation records were created to identify and legitimize marriages and children&nbsp;born to&nbsp;those&nbsp;in&nbsp;slavery. The information may include&nbsp; names of&nbsp;individuals, ages, places where born, last known slave holders,&nbsp;and approximate year of marriage or cohabitation.&nbsp;These records are a valuable resource in indentification of former slaves.&nbsp;It is most likely the first time persons born into slavery are included in&nbsp;a public record. Records may be found&nbsp;in local courthouses, state archives and libraries,&nbsp;and other&nbsp;small town or local respositories. <br>
