Burths of the Slave Children
My grandmother gave me a family Bible which contains much of my family history back to Kentucky in the 1860′s. I have been able to trace my family back to Jamestown and beyond. My story does not concern my family but the families of the slaves who worked for my family before they were freed just before the Civil War. In that Bible is a single sheet of paper on which are recorded the births of the slave children listing first names and dates of birth. I would really like to get this information to the families of those children so that they might have the peace of knowing where they came from too.
