Solomon Titus Taylor

My name is Solomon, and I am a child of the Titus family of Sumter, SC. I have found and been in contact with family that has been separated since slavery, there is so much to our family history, that I could never tell all in a e-mail message, I am willing to travel and meet someone whom could help tell this amazing story of my family, and the African tribe to whom we belong. The photo is one of forefathers who was a soldier during the Revolutionary War, and there was others. I look forward to hearing from someone soon.
