Re: Generations from Slavery ?
In Response To: Generations from Slavery ? ()
My great-grandparents were enslaved. My great-grandmother lived until 1926 and babysat my mother. My grandmother raised me from the time I was five. She had four sibling who lived a long life. Her oldest brother was born on the Peach Creek Plantation in Panola County, Mississippi in 1861 and he lived until 1943. My grandmother kept a journal - family history, town history, church history that I transcribed and used in much of my own research. They talked about the old days constantly until I felt like I was there.
