alt: I'm telling ya LOL not me

Seventies: I'll text her later..

alt: okay, great!!!!

Seventies: so you know last night I was watching 'Haunted Collector' and they found a 'haunted' slave tag... I had no idea that they had 'slave tags'... this one was very ornate. Let me see if I can find a picture of it...

alt: there was a thread on AfriGeneas a couple of years back on 'slave tags'

Seventies: Apparently I missed that one. interesting though. The place where it was found was Hardin Co., KY

alt: is that right..

Seventies: The person was enslaved in SC according to the tag. And they took it to a historian...

alt: and they verified it as a 'slave tag'?

Seventies: Yes. It was in the shape of a cartouche with a rope trim around it. It was pretty heavy looking too

alt: ah so

Seventies: So it didn't look anything like the slave tags I saw when browsing google for images. it was unique.

vkn: Falling asleep at keyboard.

Seventies: lol vkn you can't be doing that! lol

vkn: y'all be good ya heah

Seventies: alright you too

alt: wondered what happened to ya vkn..... gotta watch those candles, burning at both ends can be hazardous to your health. Oops, vkn be's gone ... like da wind LOL

Seventies: She's gone.. probably going to take a nap.. Also while I was letting my mind wander... lol I watched "Unsung" last night. They featured your homegirl Vesta Williams. :} Ohio has a lot of well known AA's.. sheesh Are you falling asleep at the keyboard too, alt?

alt: nope, yep a lot of well known AA's in Ohio or from Ohio

Seventies: I figure that was a very popular place to relocate to during the GM...

alt: probably, but I go back even further as a great place to settle.... especailly those who gained their freedom prior to the Civil War. Ohio was like the 'new' frontier with no slavery

Seventies: right. I wonder though during those times 1800-1850, was it the only 'free state' in the US??

alt: oh no, but it was the 1st free state to come into the union following the CW. Oops, following the Revolutionary War.

Seventies: okay. So now I did see that some people who were born in WV moved to OH. Did the borders of the state change at any time after the CW I know I"m asking a lot of questions, but its been on my mind for a while. :}

alt: not for Ohio, but WV came out of VA ca 1861-1862. ask away... I'm a 'know-it-all' LOL LOL LOL

Seventies: okay.... that makes sense. Recall that I had a Welcome and Julia bowman in Oberlin OH. Welcome's parents were born in VA, but I believe he was born in W.VA Hey History_Buff! How is it going???

History_Buff: Hey Alt and Seventies.

alt: well, hello stranger

History_Buff: I'm okay how are you all today?

Seventies: doing well. How was your summer?

alt: me, okay... glad to hear the same is true for you Oops, here & gone

Seventies: She looks like she got kicked out.. lol

alt: don't forget Bernice & DNA tonite
