Can you please tell me if there is any mention of James Turner or Uriah Burr Phillips in the index of your book. They lived in St. Francisville during the 1800s. Thanks, Pam

I believe my ancestors lived on this plantation in the mid 1800s. Does anyone know the name of Solitude's owner during that time?
