Are you the Bennett in the story for SC Newsletter? If so --thank you --so very much for your idea. I can tell you I can hardly sleep, just thinking about my find.
I have been looking on Ancestry at the buyer and seller's names for that date of purchase and doing research on them. Maybe I will find out even more information, as to how ADELAIDE came into the CALHOUN/CALHOON, and there was a father and son with the same names in the household. That was a headache. I emailed everybody who posted the tree with the name on it. I hope somebody responds. My Library has ordered the book for the shelves. They were pleased to know about it. And if you can--please tell Mz Lucas, I have sent in a testimony story, to the SC Newsletter, about the find I was able to make. I really never felt their stories had anything to do with 'black people's' families. Not anymore. Sounds like to me, Mz Lucas may have a lot of traveling in her horizon. Everyone will want to meet this lady.
I hope she makes a zillion dollars.
Just think my family could have been named JONES. Lordy!!
For those of you who think this is about EDGEFIELD, SC, rethink this. Look up the map and border lines for this areas during that era. Your people may have been bought there from enslavers from other SC areas and transported back to the enslavers plantation even in a closeby state. You never know until you LOOK.
