daviss: ahhh well I guess you deserve a break lol lol

fierybug08: wearing my hair in its natural state...

daviss: ok that will work

fierybug08: its fun. one of my friends created a group. we have monthly meetups. if i were living in AZ or GA, I couldn't do it. Too much humidity. But MD is cooling down. I think I will be able to deal with it. what's new with you?

daviss: I wear mine in its natural state

fierybug08: hi alt

alt: fierybug08 hello

fierybug08: are you on the phone alt you snuck in lol

daviss: nothing new with me fierybug, still looking for my peeps

fierybug08: i told my boss about Afrigeneas

daviss: yep alt be on the phone

fierybug08: she's going to check it out lol hi seventies

daviss: well thank you fierybug we sure appreciate that

Seventies Soulchild: Good afternoon fierybug08, daviss, and alt

daviss: well hello arc builder lol

Seventies Soulchild: glad to see you daviss lol

daviss: glad to see you too seventies

Seventies Soulchild: ok so yesterday I was going over these deed trusts for my great grandfather Scott Washington dated 1900 and 1899

daviss: is your boss into genealogy fierybug08?

Seventies Soulchild: The more paperwork I dig up on this man, the more the mystery deepens...

fierybug08: she wants to start. we were talking last week. She was interested and wants to start preserving family memories

Seventies Soulchild: that will be nice fierybug08

daviss: sounds like its worth digging into seventies

fierybug08: wow...seventies. that sounds interesting

Seventies Soulchild: Well I suspect his murder may have been connected to this land ownership.

fierybug08: :?

Seventies Soulchild: The land was formerly known as Woodland Plantation and was split between a family surname Ligon

daviss: Lots of Ligons

Seventies Soulchild: Because of a lawsuit filed by Isaiah Hargraves against Melissa Mazique there was a settlement and Isaiah sold his land. From the two deed trusts it looks like Scott got all of the land. There were about 6 parcels total And what is interesting is that second creek runs through the property Second creek is where a slave rebellion took place just before the USCW... in 1861

fierybug08: wow...that's interesting.

Seventies Soulchild: I would like to know more about the property and the Woodlands Plantation Also a Julia cherry is listed on the deed trust as the previous owner.

daviss: so you have to look at her also

Seventies Soulchild: I did. but there are several Julia Cherry's ... One in Marshall Co MS I was wondering if this Woodlands Plantation had a different name at one time.

fierybug08: doesn't hurt to look at them. See if they come up in the census and who the neighbors are.

Seventies Soulchild: Maybe it was Second Creek Plantation.

daviss: find out when it was built

fierybug08: I wonder if you can look at the history of the deed trust.

Seventies Soulchild: There is zero information on a Woodlands Plantation online. I will definitely have to look at the court records.

fierybug08: this would be a great program. Very good way to show methodology.

Seventies Soulchild: today the place is known as Ben's Corner. I have no idea as to why. I'm curious about this too

fierybug08: maps, deed trusts, census. Primary and Secondary resources.

Seventies Soulchild: I have a copy of the land when the family group owned it just before it came into the hands of my family

daviss: where is the National Historical Preservation Society located

fierybug08: Well...I wonder if there books that were written about the region. I'm sure perhaps we could find some literature about early settlers? I could also check out the LOC for you.

daviss: is that near you fierybug08?

Seventies Soulchild: LSU has been my resource for info about the area in general.

fierybug08: I have a friend who works there. I also work in DC.

daviss: why don't you ask jhonora seventies

Seventies Soulchild: He is so busy... besides you know I LOVE to travel... :-)

daviss: oh ok

Seventies Soulchild: Maybe I can catch him in here on a Sat night

fierybug08:'s one street over daviss [NHPS]

Seventies Soulchild: we talked briefly about the Evergreen plantation in New Orleans which was owned by the family who owned my family

daviss: fierybugo8 I wonder if they keep pics of schools

Seventies Soulchild: Here are my latest blog entries: Cut and paste now works! lol

daviss: fierybug08 do you know if they have pictures of old school bldgs

fierybug08: YAY for cut-n-paste

Seventies Soulchild: :} not having it was just real annoying...

fierybug08: i can check

Seventies Soulchild: ok fierybug08 and daviss... did you like my Family Griot Fan Page on facebook?? daviss???

daviss: I would sure appreciate that fierybug08. I am looking for a Rosenwald School in Harrison County Texas

fierybug08: i was just on a website today daviss about the Rosen School in Harrison County Texas

daviss: I did not seventies but read on the log the logs are up now and I read that you had a fan page what siite was that fierybug08

Seventies Soulchild: yes.

daviss: was it the Fisk page

Seventies Soulchild: Good afternoon Selma

Selma: Good Monday afternoon everyone

daviss: hello there Selma!! how's it going?

Selma: Going pretty good.

daviss: good to hear Do you have a walking cast?

Selma: Yep...but still walking with at least one crutch..

daviss: takes time but glad to hear you are moving right along

Selma: I am being good and doing what the Doc says.. LOL

fierybug08: here daviss check this out

daviss: lol thats what its about

Seventies Soulchild: Aren't you good all the time Selma? :}

Selma: Well that depends on how you define "good"

Seventies Soulchild: :? :? I probably shouldn't have asked that question! lol

daviss: ok fierybug08 I will. I know that Fisk has the pictures I want but in order to get a copy it will cost 50 bucks

Selma: At this point daviss...Fisk needs all the money they can get

daviss: I can understand that Selma but I would be willing to bet that I am more broke than they are

Seventies Soulchild: daviss.. :}

Selma: You are probably right daviss

Seventies Soulchild: alt sure has been on the phone for quite some time...

daviss: my grandmother went to that school and I would love a picture

Selma: They want to charge you $50 dollars for 1 picture?

daviss: he has seventies

alt: still on the phone

daviss: yep Selma

Selma: Who you taking to Obama?

Seventies Soulchild: I guess he heard his name... lol

alt: cousin from New Jersey

daviss: there are two schools that I want Selma, both were helped built by one of my gggranduncles

Seventies Soulchild: I have another question. Anyone familiar with Hancock,GA history?

daviss: I called and talked to the lady in the archives and she said 50 bucks apiece. I then said thank you very much and hung up

Selma: Not I seventies

Seventies Soulchild: I bet that's a vkn type question

fierybug08: I am sure that I can find someone who could do it without charging.

Selma: Think she was putting you off...probably would make more money if they charged around $10

daviss: I would think so Sel

Seventies Soulchild: Its after 1... I've gotta go. Y'all have a very good afternoon.

daviss: now for another bummer is my contact with the Masonic Lodge in Dallas

Selma: You haven't had any luck with them at all daviss...

daviss: no one has answered me after about 5 or so tries none selma, its always I will check and get back with you

Selma: Can you find a genealogist who could go there for you?

daviss: then they wonder why :{ I may see if Lyndam has time to go by

Selma: Oh Lyndam is there?..she could probably help

fierybug08: or get a graduate library school student interested in archives

daviss: I am not sure how far she is from where they are located &*@@ she may call and get a response Lyndam is not related to you know who lol

fierybug08: i got to go too. See ya later.

Selma: Well daviss..guess it is time to close down

daviss: Put on your red dress baby lol ok Selma
