Re: Relatives of NAT TURNER?
In Response To: Relatives of NAT TURNER? ()
According to one website:
"Nat Turner got married to Cherry Turner when he was 20, in 1820. A few years after they were married, they had 3 children, whose names are now forgotten. In 1822, soon after Nat and Cherry were married, Samuel Turner, their owner died, so all of his slaves were lined up along with the livestock and the farming tools to be auctioned off. Treated like animals, Nat was separated from his wife and children and sold. He was sold to one farmer, Thomas Moore, while the rest of his family was sold to another, Giles Reese."
