About 1820 in Taylor County Georgia, a male child was born of mixed ethnicity. His mother was a young slave girl named Sarah. Sarah lived on the plantation of Archibald Gray, her owner. Sarah was not alone on the Archie Gray plantation. Her brothers Jack, Adam, and Peter also lived on the plantation, along with her two sisters. Neither the parents of the slaves nor the names of the sisters have been identified.
The male child was called Nelson and he is my great-grandfather.
