Below is my situation, These LaForce women were all slaves of a white family named LaForce. Following a raid on Martin's Station in Kentucky (Jun 1780) by the Shawnee and British Loyalist during the Revolutionary War they were taken Canada and dispersed as described.
Candis, Hannah & Betty are my 5th, 6th & 7th great-grandmothers respectively.
Candis has a daughter.....Rachel(McKee)Reno.......Rachel's daughter, Susan, marries a Free black, Lewis Adams in Urbana, Ohio 1 Jan 1816.
