Re: Slave Research---Keep the Faith

Hi Art..That's wonderful news. I received a letter in the mail today from a 'Jim Green,' who is the GG Grandson of William H.H. Green, the last employer/owner of my family. I first had a phone conversation with him and he informed me that his Green Family was 'dirt poor farmers,' and he didn't see how they could possibly had owned slaves. He didn't suggest that they didn't he just didn't see how, especially according to the stories his grandfather told him. Anyway, he told me he would send me some of the documents he had. Well, today, when I opened them up, he had his family work sheet and ancestry chart, and he had a copy of William HH Green's death certificate, he also had a paper compiled by one of his aunts that was submitted to the Church of LDS (which they belong to) and it listed William HH's wife as being 'Eliza Hendricks' born in S. Carolina. Well..finally, a little light. William HH was born in N. Carolina, and my family was from S. Carolina, I couldn't make a connection anywhere, until I saw that paper. But guess what else?? All the other documents he had with Eliza's name on them, stated she was born in Georgia. He didn't explain the N. Carolina vs. Georgia thing..I know he noticed it. Also, the death certificate had 'no mother or father.' And the informant was a 'Mrs. Hendricks!' So now, I will look for the Hendricks in Benton County, AR. Maybe she was the one with the slaves, and when she married, Nannie and children were part of the marriage package. I'll keep you all posted!

Dena.
