In Response To: Re: Earliest ancestor question ()
One of my earliest ancestors would be my maternal ggg grandmother, Charity Williams, who was born in 1831 in Mississippi and was on the Choctaw Freedman Roll. She was the daughter of Charlotte and Wallace Willis (he and his prior wife, Minerva, were the authors of several spiritual songs, such as 'Swing Low Sweet Chariot' and 'Steal Away to Jesus.' Another ggg grandmother was Annie Keel who was born in 1828 in Tennessee and was on the Chickasaw Freedman Roll.
