Aunt Margaret Goss, RFD, Louisville, Miss.

Aunt Margaret Goss who claims to be one hundred and thirteen years of age (1937) is a most remarkable character. Her mother was a slave on the plantation of Mr. John Miller and Aunt Margaret was born before the emancipation. She recalls how each slave was given a task to perform according to age and ability and that punishment was sure in case of failure to measure up to the standard. Slave owners were kind and considerate but sometimes overseers were overbearing and cruel. The old woman remembers "The day that man in the street, Mr. Pink Cagle, (she thinks the war monument is a memorial to Mr. Cagle) and Jeremiah Miller (a slave) went away to war." She told how when word came that the Yankees were coming in 1863, one of the Miller girls hid her clothes in the cabin of the cook and how Mr. Steve Miller placed his money in a trunk and buried it on the creek bank with Jeremiah as guard.

When word was received of the surrender Mr. Miller called all the negroes into the yard and said: "You are as free as I am now. The damn Yankees have come and set you free. I hope you are satisfied." After that Aunt Margaret's family moved to Noxubee County but finally returned to Winston and settled in the Miller neighborhood. She is very black, small, and quick in her movements and speaks with a strong African dialect. People speak of her as a Guinea negro. She has raised a large family of children of her own and one orphan child, and served as community nurse in her neighborhood.(1)
