I'm glad to see that you are interested in my 4th generation Grandmother.
I took a copy there myself. The Court House in Milliville G.A. burned. That is where it was filed.
I asked the Clerk, to read the Slave
His reply was a quick 'Never'. He then stated, 'Not of African Descent'. The Document would have called her a Mulatto.
He statement was, if you were not English, Irish, or German, in the 1600 -- 1800's. You were considered Colored.
Since Fanny, according to the Slave document did marry Paschal, her family (Must) have been indentured Slaves. She must have been Jewish, French, Italian or Native American.
I understand her last name was Poles.
Oh yes I will be writting a book.
Have a Greatday.
Go to Savannah and take a look.
