The Harlee’s and Page’s hail from Marion County, SC, Dillon County, SC and Robeson County, NC. As most African-Americans, many of our branches encompass the many plantations dotted along the road.

I learned about the plight of my family after finding out that the old house my grandmother lived in was on the sight of a large slave graveyard. Dad remembers finding bones and chains in the swamps throughout the wooded area.

It’s my hope that through additional research and DNA analysis, we can pinpoint where we came from.
