In Response To: Re: Generations from Slavery ? ()
Derek, so true. I was born in 1955. My LAST relative who was born in slavery died in 1968--when I was in the 8th grade. He was born a slave in 1859. He is enumerated on the 1860 slave schedule in Orange County, NC; just before his owner freed his uncles, mother and all of her children sometime before 1863. I have been searching for an exact date of freedom, but have not been successful yet. Nathan was my great grandmother's older brother and by far out lived all of his siblings, wives and children. He had no grandchildren, but his great grand nephew's family cared for him until he died.
