Terazzah on Family Tree Circles
I are glad to have others assist me with our this research. Still it is difficult to find relatives. Our people were once known only by their first names or sold as property before 1865. My earliest memory was the story told of my great great grand mother. My grand mother told me of this young girl, age 12 who was freed in 1865. She was singled out by the plantation mid-husbandry, who wanted to marry her. She became the mother of 14 children including my great grandmother.
Black folk historic preservation is important. Our family are from North Carolina and many of the twelve counties of Alabama's Black Belt Region. Theses are Bullock, Choctaw, Dallas, Greene, Hale, Lowndes, Macon, Marengo, Perry, Pickens, Sumter and Wilcox Counties of ALABAMA.
