Re: Generations from Slavery ?
In Response To: Generations from Slavery ? ()
My Great Grandfather was born in 1859 in South Carolina. His daughter, my GreatGrandmother told me stories of him being a slave as a small child and working in the fields as a water boy.
If memory serves me right, he was was 7 years old when the Emancipation Proclamation was finally observed in the state of Texas where his parents had migrated to from SC.
I think that makes me 4 generations away or is it 3 away?
