aunt eula mae lowery tucker Greenville, Alabama 1807 Andalusia Alabama person research

I am a descendant of Charity Butler born into slavery January 1850. I have done etensive reseach on my linage dated back 1700'S in South Carolina and Annapolis Maryland. My manscript has been accepted by the Library of Congress. I also have a photo of Charity. She lived to be 106yrs. old. Charity photo and other family artifacts has been submitted to the Walter Wright Museum in Detroit Michigan. Also note that Charity brother Ellis is listed as a mulatto and that he own slaves as well. The family was in Greenville,Alabama at the time of the Emancipation and moved to Loango,Alabama. There in Loango former aquired several acres of land of which I have copies of the certificate.

Sincerely,

Zola Lowery Crowell
