Previous posts to this forum have asked about the parents
of "Tom DOOLEY", and I didn't see any full replies.
Thomas C "Tom" DULA was the son of Thomas P and Mary KEATON
DULA, and grandson of Bennet and Anne STOWE DULA. "Tom" died
on the gallows 4 May 1868, in Statesville, NC.
The black DULAs descend from Bennet's brother, and my g+grandparents, William and Theodocia BEASLEY DULA. Williams's. I descend from their daughter, Elizabeth.
William's grandson was James Alfred "Squire" DULA. The black DULAs descend from "Squire" and his slave Harriet HARSHAW.
More timely info is that one of "Squire's descendants was
Maj George L SHADE, a member of the "Red Tails". The movie
about this WWII fighter group of black pilots,is currently in theaters.
Maj SHADE few 37 combat missions with this unit.
