    in slave households (shacks) were not related to the men and women in those households. In many cases, the slave owners would simply put them with other people after they either sold off their parents, bought them, or they were the result of mating slaves like cattle, where some "studs" were forced to fathered as many as 100 babies with young slave girls about 13 years old. Some family values huh? Like my ancestors, the slave holder put his own offsprings in houses with people unrelated to them. Some small one room shacks had as many as 20 slaves in them. I wish this idiot's ancestors haunted him to his grave.
