Re: Genealogy Samuel Fraunces

Thank you Dena:

The posting about Washington's slaves was very interesting. I do hope that you and other Afrigeneas researchers can find Fraunces genealogy. I am sure his family tree is in the archives of some library.

I am sure that the Museum has wonderful intentions and frankly it is a bold gutsy statement to say that there is no proven evidence that Fraunces was a man of color. I say this only because most references say that it was a "fact" that he WAS a man of color.

Lower Manhattan is also the site of the African Burial Ground where many Blacks lived. African-Americans also called the area below Hell's Kitchen.. the West 30's "home" too.

Harlem didn't become "home" to African-Americans until the turn of the century. And it was also home to many immigrants.

So where are Samuel Fraunces' ancestors? Help.
