Selma: Good sunday morning Khathu, seventies, and deannie welcome to the Sunday Brunch chat.. Was there a specific plan seventies...since I obviously missed the memo
deannie: Hi 3rd
Selma: Morning 3rd
Khathu: good morning 3rd
Seventies Soulchild: I thought that there was a specific plan since the states & counties room was open for business and the SunBrunch wasn't
3rdthawkins: hello deannie Khathu Selma and Seventies Soulchild
Seventies Soulchild: hello 3rd
Selma: Oh I didn't realize seventies...
Seventies Soulchild: There was already someone in the room earlier this AM looking to discuss, but left since no one was here.
deannie: My task for the week is to get my research materials together for our annual trip to Ft Wayne, In this weekend...any suggests
Selma: That was me..I came in around 11..but when I didn't see anyone I left
Seventies Soulchild: someone named David came in also
Selma: Thats great deannie... Oh Ok seventies
deannie: What time is the states & counties chat room
3rdthawkins: seem to me those are set up for occasions
Seventies Soulchild: Digitial camera, tape recorder, notebook, pencil that's all I can think of.
Selma: Is this your first time there deannie
Khathu: research plan.....
Seventies Soulchild: Lots of questions too!
deannie: This is the annual trip for our Gen group...but this year we are going for 3 days....we usually go for 2....a lot more people have retired
Seventies Soulchild: oh yes or else you will be lost. That was a mistake I made when first going look for records
Khathu: and examine their online catalogue so you will know exactly what they have and what you need to examine
Selma: Are you focusing on a particular family line, or state and county
deannie: yes....my gggrandparents (Andrew & Charlotte Tyler) Jefferson country, Ms Fayette, Ms.....and the children
Seventies Soulchild: ooh I've been through Fayette... lol
deannie: I have them in 1870 and 1880....I will be looking in phone books...books from the country I've being a far as Port Gibson, MS
Seventies Soulchild: I read that the county records were in SHAMBLES.
Selma: The library has a large collection of journals and newsletters from historical society and genealogical societies
Seventies Soulchild: Yes Jefferson county, right?
Seventies Soulchild: That's one county up from Adams Co. where I do my research. They had a group of blacks immigrate to Liberia
deannie: I have to also check the neighoring county because I know something were done in the other small town
Seventies Soulchild: That would be Adams Co. to the South. Perhaps they came from there. They had quite a bit of business at Forks of the Road in Natchez. Best of luck in your search deannie
deannie: Ok....I will check that country to get a look at their infom
Selma: Is there any literature written on this migration seventies..
deannie: Thanks....I told myself that I wll come home with a big find this time
Spivey: Hi everyone!
Selma: Morning spivey
Seventies Soulchild: Yes I think the title of the book I read was "Mississippi in Africa". Gives a detailed history of the slaveowner whose set his slaves free on the condition that they go to Liberia
Selma: Oh OK...
Seventies Soulchild: Let me google it. http://tinyurl.com/23sp8mu There is also a blog about these major plantations in Jefferson county... I cannot remember the name of the blog. When wealthy Mississippi cotton planter Isaac Ross died in 1836, his will decreed that his plantation, Prospect Hill, should be liquidated and the proceeds from the sale be used to pay for his slaves' passage to the newly established colony of Liberia in western Africa. Ross's heirs contested the will for more than a decade, prompting a deadly revolt in which a group of slaves burned Ross's mansion to the ground. But the will was ultimately upheld. The slaves then emigrated to their new home, where they battled the local tribes and built vast plantations with Greek Revival-style mansions in a region the Americo-Africans renamed "Mississippi in Africa." In the late twentieth century, the seeds of resentment sown over a century of cultural conflict between the colonists and tribal people exploded, begetting a civil war that rages in Liberia to this day.
Khathu: That was a good book - Mississippi in Africa
Seventies Soulchild: yes Very interesting part of U.S. history
3rdthawkins: wow, yes, it is Seventies
Seventies Soulchild: ok so deannie. . . lol
Seventies Soulchild: what is your game plan?
Selma: deannie..you have found them in 1870 and 1880..do you know who the slave owner was? Or is that your focus
