Available Slave Data
Astounding, after ten years of research I was finally able to knock down brick walls and identify, acknowledge, embrace, and document six generations of my enslaved ancestors! What an amazing journey! I’ve collected hundreds of documents in search of my family, visiting court houses, libraries, historical societies, genealogy web-sites, etc, etc, etc. The data I needed was silently tucked away among family treasures of the Alexander descendants.
Today, I am thrilled to share fascinating documentation that will afford other researchers the same opportunity!
The information is relative to the slaves and families of Congressman Mark Alexander of Mecklenburg County, Virginia.
I want to acknowledge the descendants of Congressman Mark Alexander for making this possible. My love and appreciation goes to Sally T. Goodhart (what a beautiful sincere heart), Rebecca Alexander Hinsdale Kraus and Alice Alexander Kraus Palmer.
