One other thing of interest from the memoires Sad to say my ggg was possibly a slave owner. Not a plantation owner. But had a servant, slave or paid I don't know, but his name was Isaac who "would chase [the cannon balls] that bounced on the beach and roll a short distance and get bowled over. Finally he recovered one, still warm, and came back lugging it in both arms, exclaimimg, 'Look Marse Ben, look what dem dam-Yankees t'row at we. I'm planning a trip this spring or summer to Charleston to visit my ggg's home that is on the National Register of Historic Places. I believe it is now a student residence for a nearby college. I'd get a kick out of sharing these papers with whoever is in charge. They are well preserved, not by me but my grandfather who passed away in 1953 and somehow I ended up with them?
