Re: [PA] Black History Website
In Response To: Re: [PA] Black History Website ()

Gary,

Disregard my previous message. I found the item you requested. It was researched and sent to Afrolumens by Carolyn Shearer. Here is the original website text. Anyone who wishes to reproduce this information should contact Carolyn Shearer (I don't have her email anymore):

"Documenting African Americans in Franklin County, Pennsylvania"

Carolyn Shearer of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania has researched and documented the following information about African American slaves, free persons and families in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. Her research covers records of the Upper West Conococheague Presbyterian Church and she researched recorded marriages from 1769 to 1874. She has found documented African American marriages from 1810 through 1872 in those church records. Franklin County was formed from Cumberland County on September 9, 1784.

The Afrolumens Project extends its thanks to Ms. Shearer for submitting the following very valuable data.
