US Slavery after Juneteenth?

As most know Juneteenth 1865 marks when slaves in Texas where freed as a result of the defeat of the confederacy and an order by a Union General. It is seen as marking the end of slavery in the U.S.

Wouldn't slavery have continued in the border states, West Virginia, Missouri, Kentucky and Maryland until the 13th Amendment was ratified in December 1865?

The Thirteenth Amendment, abolishing slavery except as punishment for a crime, had been passed by the Senate in April 1864, and by the House of Representatives in January 1865. The amendment did not take effect until it was ratified by three-fourths of the states, which occurred on December 6, 1865, when Georgia ratified it. On that date, the last 40,000–45,000 enslaved Americans were freed in the remaining two slave states of Kentucky and Delaware, and the 200 or so perpetual apprentices in New Jersey, left from the very gradual emancipation process begun in 1804

I have also read certain native tribes maintained slavery for some time after.
