Parents
Her father was William Shemwell (mother was Ann ???). She married James Harvey Griffin and she died between 1850-1860. The slave she inherited was living with her and her husband in the 1850 census and actually listed a a member of the household. It states he was 'mulatto'. Very interesting because slaves were not listed in a census record. They have freed him. Note his surname! January 7, 2015
