she was young when she died
Here is a personal picture of one my 2nd Great Grandparents on their way to church in Alabama. I'm not sure what year this was taken.
My 2nd Great Grandfather -- was born enslaved in 1856 to parents and grandparents who were also born enslaved. My 2nd Great Granny was born in 1873 - and both her parents and grandparents were born enslaved.
My Great Grandmother is also in the picture -- I am not for sure which one she is -- but she's in there.
My Great Granny (b.1898) married my Great Grandfather (b.1884) pictured below -- also a child and grandchild of former slaves --- and had my maternal Grandfather -- and 11 other children together.
These old ass picture remind me of black people in Liberia. America in the 1800s looked so 3rd world.
Love my people, love my ancestors
