AMEN vkn and Vicki, it may or may not be known that Lynette (Arlene) worked tirelessly to correct a published narrative which stated that our forebearers were recently freed slaves when they traveled into Indiana. Her research proved that they were free born. She sent documentation to the National Museum of African American History and Culture (where a permanent exhibit is displayed on Lyles Station, Indiana); that legally and totally, substantiated her evidence!
