In Response To: Re: Wynne/Magruder Family ()
If you have access to Hulu, watch the second episode of the ABC documentary series called Soul of a Nation (first aired March 9). The opening segment is about an Alabama Black McGruder family, who are also descended from Ned and Mariah Magruder. Ned and Mariah aren't mentioned in the brief segment, which focuses on their son, Charles McGruder Sr.
A book is underway, which goes into far more detail, including the family's descent from Eleanor Magruder Wynne's father, Ninian Offut Magruder. On the T.V segment you'll see Lucille Osbourne, 95 years old, who knew her great-grandmother, Rachel Hill McGruder, who grew up enslaved. Lucille was recently accepted into the DAR on the basis of descent from N.O. Magruder.
