In order to work out where some of my enslaved SC family disappeared to around 1859, I've been adding the 400+ enslaved people who were sold to pay off the obscene debts Pierce Mease Butler racked up in Georgia. Part of my SC family was caught up in this horror show of a sale that lasted 3 days - and is known as the Weeping Time.

I can already tell I am going to have to take breaks in adding all of these enslaved people to my tree in order to research them more fully. This is the 5th Weeping Time person I've come across who not only outlived all of his siblings - he outlived all but 1 of his children.

I am so angry right now.

It's a Freedmen's Bank Record from FamilySearch

What happened to all of his children? Do you know?

Prinny Wilson in the 1870 United States Federal Census View 1870 United States Federal Census View blank form Add alternate information Report issue Name: Prinny Wilson Age in 1870: 60 Birth Year: abt 1810 Birthplace: South Carolina Dwelling Number: 611 Home in 1870: St Peters, Beaufort, South Carolina Gender: Male Occupation: Farm Laborer Cannot Read: Y Cannot Write: Y Male Citizen over 21: Y Inferred Spouse: Daphney Wilson Inferred Children: Dido Wilson Household Members: Name Age Prinny Wilson 60 Daphney Wilson 46 Dido Wilson 13

What is this document?

I have hit a brick wall with my enslaved ancestor in Chester Co., SC. I can find him in the special census of 1866, but nothing before that.

May I ask where these documents are located? On line somewhere? I would love to dig deeper to get more on my adopted son’s enslaved ancestors.

Brian Sheffey, take breaks. This is heavy stuff. Make sure *you* are good.

May I ask how do you search for the enslaved with only a first name?

Kathryn Knight's "Unveiled" has shaved at least 5 years off of my project research time for my "James River, Virginia Project". Her awesome research has unveiled (yep, pun intended!) new chapters in the lives of my first African ancestors in Virginia like Margaret Cornish, Juan Pedro, Maria, and Anthony Johnson.

So, I've begun to add 1619 African-related information to my tree using an adaptation of the Beyond Kin methodology (check out their group on Facebook). And found two major discoveries that were in my tree all along. I just couldn't see them because the three individuals involved weren't grouped together like they now are using the Beyond Kin approach.

Genealogy Adventures

While Season 3 of Genealogy Adventures starts in September, we have a few special episodes in store for you until then. Our first special was this Sunday, 5 May 2019.

Please join Donya and Brian as we welcome our special guest, Rachel Silverman of Silverman Genealogy.

Rachel covers:

Eastern European naming conventions - and this history behind this. Plus how to first names as a clue in your research;

Changing geo-political boundaries for Eastern European countries & Germany;

How surnames changed when Eastern European Jews began to emigrate from Europe;

The kinds of records available for Jewish genealogical research; and

A myriad of free resources available to use for your research.

And so much more!

Genealogists from different backgrounds can always learn about different research strategies from one another. Jewish genealogy has a myriad of challenges. The strategies, tips, and tricks Rachel will share will be of value to anyone who has groups of ancestors and kin who are difficult-to-impossible to research.

The information you're asking about is in the text part of the post. The link to the show is in there too

What is this and where is it available?

I'm trying to find the baptism record for the Francis Lee who left Barbados for SC in order to determine who his parents were. I've been using the following book:

"Barbados parochial registers, Series A, 1637-1850 (Anglican) St. Michael's Parish: v. 1A-2A Baptisms, marriages, burials 1648-1739"

I've seen the register of black births, marriages and deaths for in the 1600s. I've also just found the gem I've included in the attached image. I never, not in a million years, thought I'd see 17th Century entries for enslaved and free black in Barbados.

I can imagine how exciting this must be for you...and awesome! I hope that I too can have an amazing discovery such as this. I know that i have ancestors from Virginia...it's a matter of having the patience, persistence to go through the online and offline records. I would have so many emotions if I were you.

Thank you for your devotion, efforts, planning, motivating others that you lead, and desire to continue bringing us information about our links to each other.You are appreciated.

I'd love to know more about your research process. How were you able to connect the dots all the way back to this first group of enslaved Africans?

Yes processing needed. Knowing after looking so hard can still produce an explosion of emotions. Be gentle with yourself.

My husband's ancestor was also on the Sea Venture. Samuel Jordan. He kept a diary during that time which I would love to read...

Oh wow!!

Wow, that's a mind trip.

Sorry, I don't get it!

I will let him know

Debra: The Lost Empire: Black Freemasonry in the Old West (1867-1906) by James Morgan YOU

That’s awesome James! Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

James helped me realize the richness in my ancestor's story, Mr. Alison Josephine Criner. He also helped me assign the correct fraternity to my great grandfather, Cap Mercy, to the Order of Odd Fellows.

My great great grandfather even with Matthews in the 1st Kansas Colored

I’m looking forward to more “Genealogy Adventures”! Thanks to both of you, Donya and Bryan 🤗

Always great information

I stayed in James’ ear every single day!!!

What was Matthews genealogy? I am related to Matthews out of MD and VA

Amen to that, Donya!!!

People want quick answers, joy comes from finding things yourself

One of the problems in omving forward for us as a people is that our history was hidden from us and we did not know of the many achievements made by our ancestors. In many cases, our own family members did not or would not discuss these things. I dont know why the secrecy.

This is fascinating!

Looking forward to it! James has helped me as well.

Sounds like my great grandfather William Hall

Approximately when did the Order of Eastern Star chapters begin?

In my opinion, the men who were Freemasons during Reconstruction were responsible for bringing structure to our people and taught our ancestors how to function post slavery

There no sound Donya

My mom is an eastern star since 1982

Are the Eastern Stars part of the free mason.

Yes, I have

Glad I made it. You guys are on daylight savings... I am not yet... yikes!!!! Will see the video to get what I missed. thanks for tonight

Are any of those records digitized?

I've been reading accounts of how my 3x great grandmother, Venus Josey II, co-founded the Willow Oak African Methodist Episcopal Church in Rich Square, Northampton County, North Carolina in1866:

Willow Oak, one of the first black churches in Northampton County, was organized the second Sunday in June, 1866 by the Reverends W. H. Bishop and Henry Epps. Seven dedicated Christians gathered that day, namely, Lazarus Pope, Margaret Pope, Venus Josey, Barbara Wiggins, Anthony Brewer, Mason Brewer and Julia Wilkins. They met under a willow oak tree, for which the church was named. This tree stood on a clay hill beside what is now state highway No. 258, south of Rich Square.

At first these pioneers had no building so they made a brush arbor under which they worshipped God. In winter they met in an old slab school for protection from the cold. In 1868 they built a wood structure large enough to seat more than 150 people. At this time there were 100 members added to the church.

During Rev. R. R. Nichol's administration, 1896-1899, the members purchased the old Corinth Church from the white Baptist members for the sum of $250.00, and very reluctantly moved from the old clay hill next door to where the present church now stands.

Under the leadership of Rev. L. R. Pearce, 1925-1935, a new structure was built. With Rev. S. A. Fennell as pastor, 1948-1954, the building was renovated, new furniture was purchased and the parsonage was renovated.

Plans for the present structure were made while Rev. G. B. Bowling was pastor, and completed in 1973 during the pastorate of Rev. H. L. Ingram, with the exception of the altar rail, carpet, tile and pastor's study.

The old Willow Oak School was located about ¼ mile from the present Creecy High School. The building was of perpendicular slabs with a chimney occupying each entire end of the structure. The floor was of dirt with logs used for seats. About 100 pupils were in regular attendance, some walking to school as far as from 3 to 5 miles.

Some of the teachers were: Miss Anna Skinner of New Haven Conn., Mr. J. W. Weaver of Rich Square, N. C., Prof. William Jennings, Phil, Pa., Mr. John Reynolds, Murfreesboro, N. C., Miss Annetta Taylor, Hampton, Va. and Mr. William Brewer, Rich Square, N. C.

In 1899 Willow Oak School was consolidated with Rich Square School to form what became the W. S. Creecy High School. The Willow Oak School was operated under the auspices of the Willow Oak Church.

Katris Clark do you know if anyone in the family has pictures or images of Venus? I have one for Rebecca, however, I haven't come across one for Venus. -Brian

Wow! Fantastic history. Wonderful you connected to it. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

My grandmothers home is across from Willow Oak, like you Venus Josey is also my 3rd great grandmother. The church meant everything to my Great Grandmother and my grandmom. It still means allot to direct descendants, my aunt often makes the wreaths that hangs on the front doors.

Thank you family.

History and genealogy are eternally linked. To not know one is to dishonor the other.

Great session -- thank you!

Yes, impossible to do genealogy without studying history and human migration patterns.

Donya you have my help.

Thanks to all three of you!!

I would love to meet the Edgefield Group. When will they meet again?

Donya, We talked about that fight or funeral attitude. LOL

Great idea Brian!!

You can call me Phil

That happen in my family one name on 1880 census another on 1900 Hill to Harris

Hello! Looking forward to the show today!

Unfortunately I apparently missed it - Am I understanding correctly that its occurring on Feb 28th? If so I missed it. If not I will attempt to watch it. Congratulations!!! I am extremely proud of you Natonne!!! :-*

Thank you!

Hello 😁

Hello everyone!!

Wow

Did the Palmores also migrate west or did they stay mainly in the Edgefield area?

I’m excited

Did some of the Yeldell’s migrate to Alabama.

We're seeking a German genealogist / historian to show us around for the day; especially showing us places associated with our ancestor, Peter Scheffe, mayor of Herschberg. And places associated with our Agne family too.

This is a paid gig. Recommendations would be much appreciated. Please let me know if you can recommend anyone.

Look at the ICAPGen or bcgcertification.org/directory/ directory

This kind of work requires at least six months lead time.
