In Response To: Re: FPOC's Longtown, OH Settlement ()
You started this thread in 2002 and I remember it well. I remember writing or asking, “Who were the Free People of Color?”
Your research and knowledge has expanded our thinking. The belief that FPOC were all descended from rich planters and their concubines in the Lower South is erroneous.
You, Forum Manager Paul Heinegg, and many other members of the AfriGeneas family tell a different story about the origins of Free People of Color.
I would encourage our visitors to use the search button on this page. Plug in a place or family name or any thing that might uncover an important piece of information.
In the interim, I’ll begin with your first posting and read through this fascinating string,
Kudos Arturo! And WRITE THAT BOOK!
