I found out something interesting about my ancestry.
We started out here as Irish Slaves (indentured servants) and shortly after, actually became slave owners.
My family had tobacco plantations in Maryland.
Reading some of the last will and testaments was interesting to say the least. It made me believe that
There was a romantic relationship between one of my ancestors and one of his slaves. It was written in such
A way that there was not a lot of ways I could interpret it. Either that or the woman was his biological daughter from a slave impregnation.
Also saw some instances of first cousins getting married and other weird stuff. Husbands marrying his wife’s sister after the wife passed away. It
was pretty common back then, but seems weird now. There sure were a lot of women that died back then, was it all innocent or was there a lot more
murder than we know? I have a cool murder mystery / paranormal story that I’ll share later.
Tell me something cool about your ancestry.
