AYWalton: that man's accent makes me nervous. Sounds like some of the voices of terror in the south.

bbenn: Since Hurricane Katrina, we have felt a strong need to stay connected to one another...

AYWalton: or maybe it is that confederate flag behind him.

Family Griot: Yes, I undersand that bbenn

AYWalton: uh oh.....southerners will now be mad at HC Jr.

Family Griot: Scared of what? Nervous about what? Anyone an own a gun these days.

Nadasue: And use it Family Griot

Family Griot: exactly Nadasue

AYWalton: no the sound of his voice I don't like. I am not afraid of him personally. I was referring to the old man.

Family Griot: But I betcha cotton and other goods were still getting to the overseas market. sigh...

AYWalton: Hmm........kind of chatty a bit.

Family Griot: :}

keli1: wonder if these guys are related

Daviss: is the show good so far:?

AYWalton: do we really know that he fathered a child with a black woman?

Family Griot: Good question, AYWalton.

AYWalton: I am kind of mixed about it. Greg Isborned. Do you know him bbenn?

bbenn: Hi Greg..

Family Griot: Well Daviss, I would say watch it for yourself.

AYWalton: I know you know N Orleans. Orborn I meant to type.

Family Griot: who is to say that the mother is unknown either.

bbenn: I need to call him..he works at the NEW Orleans Library---

Family Griot: did he say hours and hours? How about weeks and months and years?! lol

AYWalton: wb Daviss

Family Griot: What about his death certificate? or death record?

AYWalton: probably was not required in LA at the time. aha........natural son--meant that they were not married. oh gracious---one of the few---puleeze!

keli1: less than 10%, hmmm

Family Griot: hold on someone is texting me

bbenn: This is not usual for New Orleans with over 10,000 free people of color ...

AYWalton: exactly!!! why is he so amazed.

bbenn: Read Black New Orleans 1860-1880 by John W. BLASSINGAME

Family Griot: ok now I'm trying to figure out becasue so many 'creoles' talk about how their ancestors married, why he didn't marry this woman? Especially since she was free.

keli1: the law probably didn't allow it

AYWalton: but could they marry legally?

bbenn: They had their legal marraiges and the other woman! Very common...

AYWalton: And i was wondering---was there another woman?

Family Griot: Someone told me something like that in the forums... lol

AYWalton: perhaps a wife? Cane River addressed that.

Family Griot: That book was so disturbing.

Nadasue: Ah, Cane River... I LOVED that book!

bbenn: I remembered the signs...

AYWalton: I saw some as well.

Nadasue: It was a good read though Family Griot

bbenn: Bringing back memories!

Family Griot: It was I read it in two days.

AYWalton: play it Branford!

bbenn: My family lived in the Upper Ninth Ward...

Family Griot: Oh here we go, Mississippi :}

AYWalton: glad he knew some of that history.

Selma: Be prepared for what you of my mantras

Family Griot: lol This is interesting. Now just because they had a marriage bond, doesn't mean they got married.

keli1: good lord this is interesting

AYWalton: Good for him. he is not lured into an emotional issue with what Gates is presented. good for him.

Family Griot: Now a new family for him to look into... amazing!

AYWalton: issue. glad the Rattlesnake was not a slave ship! uh oh----here comes the DNA reveal. what company did they use?

Family Griot: 23andme

AYWalton: significant...interesting.

bbenn: one drop...

AYWalton: interesting.

Selma: So we are not doing Connicks DNA?

bbenn: Back to the quarters!

AYWalton: glad there was no chance to make fun of the Native issue.

Family Griot: This is every Sunday night?

bbenn: Harry may have one drop

AYWalton: I suppose not.

bbenn: bye

Nadasue: Goodnight all.

AYWalton: yes.
