Hello, my name is Wilma McLean. I read in your blog where you talked about Edward Orr. How did you get the information on his wife Rachel? Did you order pension records or did the information come from another source. I am trying to track them in Morgan County Ala. They are my ancestors and I would like to know more about them.
I just wanted to express my appreciation for the quality of your site. As a man of letters, I enjoy the erudition tremendously.
I have not yet begun to explore the ancestry of the slaves and slave descendants that my various white ancestors had in VA, NC, TN, MS, LA and TX. I have been overloaded just exploring the white trees. But as I uncover more and more evidence of this history, it is becoming more and more relevant and significant. For example, one of my contacts in LA just sent me some research on one of my Devall ancestors, showing that he had 14 children with 3 African-American women from the 1875 up to the 1920s, apparently consensual. This reminded me of the Newt Knight community in Jones County, MS.
If you have not addressed the issue of whites starting to research their African-American ancestral connections, I think that would make a fabulous article, or even book.
