While doing Genealogical Research on my Family, I came across records that listed my Ancestors as "People of Color" registering yearly in their hometown at the Courthouse.

How did they get their freedom because it was against the law for slave owners to grant manumission?

They were listed in Warrenton, Ga from abt 1846-1860 County Registry's Office
