Re: Generations from Slavery ?
In Response To: Re: Generations from Slavery ? ()

Hi BJ & Linda,

Generations removed - much closer than I realized.

My father's parents, my paternal grandparents were born into slavery.

Grandfather - George Thomas born 16 May 1852 in Virginia died 31 Jul 1925 in Greencastle, Indiana.
Grandmother - Flora (Lawrence) Thomas born 2 Mar 1853 Edgecombe Co., NC died 11 Aug 1912 in Greencastle, Indiana.

I found the marriage/cohabitation record for Flora's parents Peter & Louisa Lawrence (1866) filed in Edgecombe Co., NC ...it stated they had lived as husband and wife for the 19 previous years. Source; "Somebody Knows My Name" - Barnetta McGhee White, PhD.

We've also located what we believe to be the Lawrence family while enslaved in the 1860 Slave Schedule for Edgecombe Co., NC

The closeness to slavery is "scary". My grandparents were slaves, WOW!!!
