Domestic Servant - family?
Are domestic servant's usually family, when the family is black too?
In 1870, Henry and Catherine Foster have a 58 year old woman, Harriet Mcgeehee, living with them. She is listed as a domestic servant. There are two other families of black Mcgeehee's living next door.
I'm wondering if Harriet could be Catherine's mother? And her neighbors, Catherine's brothers?
Would this be common?
