This story is about my great-great-great grandfather,Carr Handy, who served in the Civil war (we have photo of him in his uniform) and lost his arm. He came home from the war and owned acres of land and has a ornate family cemetary still in good condition to this day. The story that sticks out about him, when he returned from the war-his father (Levin Handy -- a reported pure indian) had been sold into slavery in GA or SC (not clear) but he went south and came back with his father! What power or money he had we don't know -- but from his picture, it looked like he did not play! We have wondered if he was a free black to have owned so much land, was it purchased before or after the war -- did he get his 40 acres and a mule?
