Hi Steve,
You are welcome about the information I sent to you, and I would like to thank you for this last message you sent to me. I did a look-up of the word "inveigling". That word could cover a lot of territory. There was a law passed in Georgia in 1850 concerning inveigling, and it was that if a person was convicted of "inveigling", enticing a slave to run away from his owner, the person could be sentenced to life in Prison. Of course, at the time Samuel was convicted, the law was different, and he could have been convicted of enticing a number of different things!! I would be interested in receiving any new information that you might get on Samuel or the family. Thank you again.
