Lagrones and Slavery

This is just a basic note to express my position on this. Some Lagrones owned slaves, some did not. It's the truth. While there are those who may feel that it's not appropriate to bring that up here and now, but as a historian, I do. I am not drawing any conclusions from the fact that some Lagrone's owned slaves, or implying that any who did or didn't were morally better or worse than the others who didn't. It was a different time, and it's not my purpose to say what's right or wrong here (if you want, meet me in person, and I'll chew your ear off on what I think are right and wrong).

I'm happy to research any Lagrones, and will be happy to talk to anyone about their families, regardless of color. There's little enough information out there I'm not going to start limiting my research to just one group.

I've been trying to figure out the best way to present this information as it becomes available.  What I will probably do is note the slave schedules,  and identify people as well as I can.  From there, there should be links to other information about those people.  As more information becomes available, I will note it here.

Also, the code numbers I have assigned are simply to help track different people through time.  They have no other purpose or meaning.  They consist of the owners initials, the year the person seems to appear, the gender, and the number in sequence.
