Brother Atlanta/Pembrook GA 1850s Pembrook, GA Oral interivew with a family member

I think my family maybe direct descendants of the slaves once owned by the Rooseveltís in Atlanta, GA. My ancestors on my grandmotherís side have the last name of Bulloch. I was told a story by my brother who received information from an elder member of the family that this may be true. I looked up the names of the slaves owned by the Rooseveltís and compared it to a family matrix that I have and there are some uncanny similarities. I would like your assistance in figuring out if this is true or not.
