My family is also out of Halifax, NC. My great great great grandmother is Molly Solomon who was married to Thomas Albert Solomon. Their son Ferris Solomon Married Neva Silver. Their daughter Ethel Solomon married Matthew Richardson. I write because I have some links that make me wonder if Molly's father was Daniel Boyd. I'm not sure but I'd like to know what links you might have??? I know that Ethel was raised in such a way that she did not "believe" in slavery. Because Halifax had tens of thousands of free people of color and Ethel seemed to be ignorant to what slavery was I think that these families may have been among them. What links have you found that show they were slaves? Please contact me at defieldsbooks at yahoo.
