Selma: It was a joke

Seventies: Wa-La I'm here... lol

HistoryBuff: Hey Seventies. Lol

vkn: Me too Selma so my focus is SCLATER for now but I do toy a bit with Lee Patterson whose folk say he is a descend from a Robert E Lee slave I guess Khathu is making his presentation long bout now

Seventies: okay...

Selma: BRB

HistoryBuff: K

Seventies: Robert Lee from VA??

vkn: Yes Seventies so goes the folklore

Seventies: I was under the impression that his enslaved 'property' was all from the wife. Am I wrong? His claim to fame was that he was a military man who went to West Point...

vkn: Well there is a question about who owned whom

Seventies: As there should be. . .

vkn: but Lee claims to have owned none

Seventies: the way I understand it is that after his father in law died he was left his land and slaves. Perhaps there was another Robert Lee... which is likely... lol

vkn: Yes same understanding as I have

Seventies: Oral history has its limitations.

vkn: I think from Rappahannock VA?

Selma: He was the executor of his father in laws estate.. The father in law did emancipate a number of them

Seventies: wow, I didn't know that.

vkn: Is there an inventory Selma?

Selma: Hold on

vkn: holding lol

Selma: I will have to check..

Seventies: okay.... but that's some interesting information.

vkn: Most interesting
