Re: FPOC in Charleston, SC
In Response To: Re: FPOC in Charleston, SC ()

Judy, Thanks for your response. I am looking for the manumission/guardianship information for Richard P. Harleston, born October 20, 1822. His mother may have been a slave named Myrtilla owned by the Harlestons. Richard P. may have been given as a gift by Elizabeth Harleston (1747-1830) to her neice, Mrs Harleston Corbett Simons (Mrs James Dewar Simons). FYI, the black Harlestons that are featured in Edward Ball's recent book, THE SWEET HELL INSIDE, I believe are a separate
but related branch of my family. I am seeking to tie my Richard P. Harleston to the same William Harleston (in Balls's book) that fathered eight children with his former slave Kate Wilson. I hope your information can help me. I wait to hear from you again... Carmen
