Chaise: Possibly, it was just an interesting find since I've never heard anyone in my family mention their names.
alt: okay bbenn, I thought I saw his name in the program.
bbenn: I just compared the names in my family bible with the 1940 census. Very interesting! I wonder if the census taker used the bible to record the information?lol lol lol

bbenn: Hello ProfDru
Seventies Soulchild: Condolences ProfDru
bbenn: She lived a long life- condolences to you and the family.
Chaise: condolences to you on your loss.
ProfDru: Despite the circumstances, it will be good to see everyone. Funeral will be at the family church and burial at the family cemetery.
alt: yes ProfDru... condolences to you nad the family.
Seventies Soulchild: Absolutely. And expect a full house.
ProfDru: Thanks everyone. Now my two main sources of family history are gone. The other was my maternal grandmother.
bbenn: Did you have a chance to record her sharing family history?
ProfDru: I am so glad that I had an opportunity to get to know my Aunt Della and to record and write her memories of our family's history. She remembered one of her enslaved ancestors.
Seventies Soulchild: Ok ProfDru, I have a question.. I don't know if I mentioned it to you when I found out, but how in the world did you find my friend from NY? That has perplexed me since last summer.
ProfDru: which friend?
Seventies Soulchild: The Easters.
alt: well you have a lot of ground to cover in documenting her life ProfDru .. 102 years gets you back to before WW I, the depression & WW II... she saw so many changes in her life.
bbenn: ProfDru - that's wonderful and a memory for a lifetime.
alt: and then like you just mentioned she connects to even earlier generations in her oral history to you.. you're very fortunate to have had her in your life.
ProfDru: They are kin to me on the PAIR side. Their ancestor and my ancestor were brothers. Both brothers were born around the 1850/60s. I attended a reunion in their family branch and someone gave them my name and number and we talked on the phone and through Facebook.
Seventies Soulchild: ok I mean when they told me, I was completely caught off guard.. lol
alt: 6 degrees of separationin action Seventies Soulchild LOL LOL
ProfDru: alt, yes I am fortunate. She recalled that her paternal grandmother had 3 sets of children; two set born during slavery. I have found documentation on these three sets of children, but have not yet located any slave holding family. Aunt Della did not remember any mention of the name of the slave holding family of her grandmother.
Seventies Soulchild: lol lol right. Daviss is still looking to see how we're related! lol
ProfDru: so this weekend will be extremely busy with the funeral on Saturday and a hat program on Sunday.
Daviss: lol lol
Seventies Soulchild: Yes don't forget the V8 ProfDru! :}
ProfDru: lol soulchile
Seventies Soulchild: Funerals are very demanding.
ProfDru: I need to work on my speech for the hat program. I'm revising the one I gave in February.
alt: bbenn, I hope you can get Derek to speak to the records in OH/IN/MI that were genearted as a result of the Black Codes in those 3 States... lots & lots of records at the county levels from 1803 forward.
ProfDru: yes, funerals can be demanding. I plan to get to town early to see family and look through the family cemetery prior to the burial. Whoever is riding with me needs to get up early. LOL
Seventies Soulchild: Ok I have a couple things I wanted to work on during lunch. I'll see y'all later. Take care
ProfDru: gotta run

Daviss: do you have pictures of the headstones oops she logged off
