Hi there - I'm looking for any info about Silas Crawley Sr b 1853 or his wife Adaline (~b 1865). I do know that they had children:
Silas Jr (my direct ancestor)
Silas Sr. is where I hit my roadblock. I see no older black Crawleys on freemen lists so I imagine he started out as a slave, but I'm stumped on Plantations to research.
