Thanks for correcting me on Eugenia. She was actually my grandmother's sister, so she would be my great aunt. In my aunt Helen's autobiography
She also said, " Following Indian custom, Grandpa Brisby carried his mother's name rather than his father's."
After Anne died, W.H. Brisby married "Victoria, a full bloodied Virginia Indian" and started a second family. I have been in touch with the grand daughter whose name is Barbara Brisby Petty.who lives in Washington, D.C.This was in 2002 and she was 72 years old then.
Helen Jackson Lee's Autobiography is "Nigger in the Window", 1978, Doubleday .
