I have been researching my family history for about a year and half now with some moderate success. I have located my 2nd and 3rd Great Grandfathers and that they were very likely slaves given their dates of birth, but I am unable to determne who they might have been owned by in Hale County. They lived on the same plot of land, according to census from at least 1870 to 1943. I know that my GG Grandfather (Bednego Frost) attended Lincoln Normal University in Marion Alabama in 1883 and was listed on the 1900 census as a school teacher. His father, Granville (Granuel) was born in 1814 and was married to Mary Huckabee.
Granuel had at least two other sons, beside my 2nd Great Grandfather
Any ideas how I can narrow down who they might have been
owned by in Hale County?
