  •  Amazing story about your great great Aunt ... (10+ / 0-)

    I may be reading ths wrong and granted, I am very forgive my dumb question...but you knew her and has conversations wtih her a former slave.  Amazingly cool, few of us can say this.  

    I have no stories of ancestors in this country before
    1889. They were all coal miners  in PA and slaughterhouse or factory workers in KY.  So I have great early union stories and I have some of their citizenship papers and purchase of goods orders and property which is cool.

    What I always wanted to ask great grandparents, all of whom were immigrants was what were they reading in their papers in western and eastern Europe about the Civil War as there are stories my great grandfather wanted to come to America and was all ready to when word spread Civil War in America. He was crushed !!
