"Thanks for sharing such a compelling part of your family history Art! Your web site is really put together well. I wonder when the law banning interracial marriage was finally lifted? It appears that they were finally recognized as a "Family". Sadly after Lizzie's passing. I wonder when his other slaves were emancipated.


Thanks for your comments on both accounts.. story & website. Not sure about interracial marriage for NC, but I think it wasn't until the 1970's for VA to legally accept an interracial marriage. As for the other slaves I would imagine their emancipation came as a result of the Civil War.
