My gr-grand-father migrated to Australia (where all his descendants live) about 1834 with his mother, coming via England. He was born in Kentucky and by his photos appears to have been a mulatto. Information he gave to his children and which was been passed down is that his father was a freed slave and was a horse trainer. He did not give any information about his mother apart from her first name.
I realize that this is probably not the correct place to be asking this, but maybe some one who reads this may like to contact me with some info as to where or to whom I can go to help find any more information about my gr-gr-grandfather. He was supposed to be the son of an African king. I presume this information was given to my gr-grandfather by his mother because he was only young when he left America. There is no info as to what happened to his father. He did not come to Australia.
