I forgot that I even posted here. I was shocked to find all of this. When I lived in Tallahassee, Florida, I used to go up to Thomasville, Georgia. It was a beautiful small town with all of these old plantations that now were tourist sites. Well, I found out later that one of them belonged to one of our relatives. He had an affair with a slave, and they had a son. The son ran away and joined the North during the Civil War. He was captured, and was going to be hung by the South for treason. However, his father went up and "claimed" him. He stayed on the plantation until the war was over and then he traveled the country as a preacher.

You and I are definitely related Robin. Everything you have said it what I was told as well....

Did you ever find anything out?
