mg Lyr Add: Momma Oh - re trail of slaves (7) RE: Lyr Add: Momma Oh re trail of slaves 04 Sep 19


i think we should assemble a list of songs about this topic...best of course would be from those who experienced this. I should say that I am descended from slave ?? what is a good word..not owners. I am on ancestry.com and apparently have many cousins from Cameroon due to the abuses of slavery..also said to be related to those who ran a "bride" "plantation". I am also related to the williams of jasper county georgia, book by same name.

Irish and undoubtedly others used the papers to find missing family also.

song reminds me somewhat of lily of the valley as sung in cornwall. something about the shoes..the shoes i wear are gospel shoes and you can wear them if you choose. Dead girl shoes...very sad but when times were very awful no pair of shoes probably went unused.
