  •  one great uncle was killed in 1862 (4+ / 0-)

    and 5 great uncles in another lineage died, one each year and all in one family (2 sons survived) Tracing back my 4 grandparents' lineages

    However, this area was not one for plantations, being more a frontier area at the time so there are no slaveholders in my family tree.  I examined the roster for the county and found no slaveholders though I am sure their racial views would shock me today as I assume they were all "men of their time"
