I watched the program about Slavery on channel 13, on Wednesday Feb. 16.
There was a profile done on a slave by the name of Robert Smalls, whose mother's name was Lidia Smalls. The family was from Beaufort.
By coincidence, my grandmothers name was Lidia Smalls and she was born in Beauford. I was wondering how to find out if my grandmother was descended from this branch of the Smalls Family.
