Re: Family History
In Response To: Re: Family History ()

Thanks for your support!
I just took a deep breath and I'm jumpin' in.

Here it is:
From the study of Black history, a child born to an enslaved mother, fathered by the "massa" or "masta" would most nearly have a difficult childhood. How did the parents of Frank Ramey view his birth? Was his birth welcomed? Was he raised along with the "masta's" children? Was he confronted with discrimination and acts of unkindness? From his birth, would he come to know the every day struggles of living in a slave state as one who ws enslaved? Based upon fact and family oral history, Frank Ramey was a farmer his entire life.

Supporting background info: My GG Grandfather, Frank Ramey, was born in KY, 1840's to a White farmer and Black slave. Census information has his race as "Mullato and/or Black."

Thanks for your support and suggestions.

Jay
