Re: Early African American Life in Pennsylvania
In Response To: Early African American Life in Pennsylvania ()
Thank you so much for this information:
"Early African American Life in Waynesburg Greene County, Pennsylvania," by Marlene Garrett Bransom. No, I had not heard of the book, but I will order it through interlibrary loan if my library here in Louisiana does not have it. I am really impressed that Ms. Bransom has compiled a complete list of AAs in Greene Co. for that extensive period of time. I wish there was a list available for Allegheny Co., but perhaps the list of slaves in Allegheny, Westmoreland, and Fayette Cos. will include some of my ancestors. According to oral family history, my direct ancestor, Moses PANGBURN, was the first free child of color born in western PA. I have not found documentation to substantiate what my grandfather, who was born in 1872 (or one of his relatives), told his much younger wife, who passed the story down to me.
