In Response To: Re: Slave Narratives - Julia Jackson White AR ()
Julia is my 2nd Great Grand Aunt. I literally stumbled across your post on Friday when doing a search for help in finding runaway slave ads. Julia’s name caught my eye and I opened the post. As I read it I couldn’t believe it. This is my family! I was in total utter shock! I was almost in tears and had to control myself because I was at work.
I started genealogy in ‘07 and I’d checked the slave narratives, but at that time I didn’t know about Julia. I discovered her last summer when I received her sister’s widows pension. Her sister is my 2nd Great Grandmother. Julia’s deposition was in the file which helped her sister receive the pension.
To think that you did this for practice and randomly chose my family. It’s astonishing.
Thanks to you it’s a great discovery and has put a major crack in my brick wall!
