Could We Be Desensitized To Slavery?

Posted on August 23, 2009 at 2:30pm 1 Comment

This post has spawned a wonderful stream of open dialogue on my Our Georgia Roots blog today {PLEASE read the insightful comments!}. Here's hoping the coversation can continue...



Recently I realized that over the years, my personal prejudice in regards to the Civil War has prevented me from learning about the war & the significant involvement of enslaved & free,… Continue

Ancestors Lost.

Posted on July 13, 2009 at 12:02pm 9 Comments

Whenever I introduce myself for Genealogical purposes, I always say "I am Luckie Daniels, a descendant of emancipated slaves from Washington-Wilkes Georgia".

It’s not spoken with any inkling of shame {to the contrary, great pride!}, nor is it intended to spur guilt. It is just who I am.

While I am not defined by Slavery, I would be remiss to ignore the impacts of the Chattel System upon myself personally, my Family and African-American Culture, as a… Continue

Just a mere 6 days ago, Mavis {aka NCChemist} & I had a Tweetersation {yes, I just created my own word!:-} about the virtues of utilizing Facebook for Genealogy purposes.

Although not quite convinced that I wanted my Facebook & Genealogy worlds to meet {being a “Techie”, I live in the land of WWW daily & consider Genealogy “MY” time!}, I have to admit after hearing from Mavis how cool it was to connect with long-lost cousins, I was at least thinking about… Continue

Luckie, I'm back on the trail of Coleman Williams. Are you still there? My family and I have moved to Anchorage, Alaska and are finally stable. I feel I can get back to the research. Merry Xmas, Janeen

I know what you mean about needing to get the feel for the "lay of the land". I'm having a little bit of success online via, but it also opens up MORE questions/doubts. I'd have never thought my Hill and Peel ancestors would be like looking up Smith or Jones. lol. Interestingly, however, there are a couple people popping into my life who have given me help -- a couple of "removed" & distant cousins, and a woman who, as a child, was a playmate when my Mother took me to Alabama to visit an Aunt. At 9 years old, we struck up a temporary friendship (meaning to keep in touch as pen pals) but I was there just a few days, and it didn't last. Now all these years later, she sends me a blind email asking permission to convey information about the Uncle and Aunt who were her neighbors. She didn't know it was the little girl from her past until I wrote back after recognizing her maiden name! We're now email-pals. I wish you the best of luck in your hunt, and I hope it opens doors to many friendships & re-acquaintances w/cousins & ancestors. God Bless.

I'd be glad to join.

About 15 years ago I was invited to the five-day black Bellinger family re-union, but I forget the name of the Piedmont, S.C., county. As the only "white" there--and I was amazed, the last day at the "speak from your heart" last lunch; except in seeing my arms before me; I felt as one with the family--as if I was colorless. And I'm no super Liberal attempting to feel that way; that's just the way it turned out.

I believe your website shows an Alabama connection? My Thomas Malone, Sr., circa 1805, was U.S. Land Office agent, U.S. magistrate, and Asst. Indian agent, Ft. St. Stephens, Alabama. The book of (Pickin's?) Alabama biography, tell's how Malone got a passport through the Indian nation from Raleigh, N.C., to Ft. St. Stephens and took several (white) families with him and their slaves. It tells how a raft overturned and children (white and black?) drowned. Malone was originally from Malone's Mill Creek, Warren Co., N.C., to Raleigh; and from Ft. St. Stephens he finally settled Mobile. He and Capt. Edm. Pendleton Gaines, arrested Aaron Burr, and escorted Burr to trial, Richmond, Va.

If some one descends a Malone slave of Mobile, or Ft. St. Stephens, then their origins may go back to Raleigh, or even Warren Co., N.C.

The Navy has just named an ammunition ship in honor of Medgar Evers. In honoring Evers; the Navy also honors itself.

It has been extremely exciting finding the different documents with my ancestors name on it. I was telling my sister that I got so excited when found my Samson Reed's Freedmans Bank records I forgot how I located it. I did not think I would ever find his parents because he was not from Edisto Island. He was originally from Georgetown South Carolina and I found this information from his oldest son's death certificate.

My all time best experience was when I found Samson Reed and Joseph Jenkins military records. And just knowing that their names are listed on the Civil War Memorial in Washington has made my year.

I recently found out that Samson Reed testified for the Defense in the Court Martial of Sgt William Walker. I received an appliation from the NARA to request a copy of the transcript for the trial.
