In Response To: Re: Found my g-grandfather Presley Roberts owner!! ()
Hi Denise, That's *Wonderful News!!* The information I received from (who I thought was) the ancestor of my family's last slave owner, has shed some new light on my thoughts also.
We spend so much (good) time trying to determine who the last slave owner was, picking through different bits of information, that when we finally think we're almost there, I mean to the last slave owner, up pops his/her name and it's the same name of thousands more, living in the same place. And, they (the supposed slave owner) has so many 'nicknames' and AKA's, married to the mother's brother's daughter's son, who all name their children the 'same' name as the first cousin. And we 'think' finding our Ancestor is Hard....HA!
Congradulations on your new information, and may the Ancestors continue to be with you in your Search.
