In Reply to: Re: Slaves of Heidelbergs by Qiana Heidelberg of 196

Hello Quiana, ironic you ask. My mother told me my ggrandfather (Alfred Heidelberg) was white. I took the information with disbelief considering he married Phillis Merrill a black women. I did go to the Clarke Cty court house this year and copied their marriage certificate (filed in the black marriages book). Unfortunately, as the story goes my ggrandfather was poison by an "mysterious woman". My ggrandmother, Phillis, moved back to her fathers farm and raise her 4 daughters Nepie, Willie, Coreen and my grandmother Sylvia. Was he white, I guess I have to accept my mother's story. What information do you have about the black Heidelsbergs? bty, I did receive a note soemtime back from a person, descendent of white Heidelbergs in Ms, and he is very interested in any information I uncover.
