Nothing specific, and that's my problem.
The census indicates she was a widow. Did she marry as a slave or after the war? I don't know how to find out.
Why did she stay with the family, and take the family last name?
Where did she teach? The census lists her as a teacher. How might I locate where she taught?
I know little about the history of slavery and the conditions of slavery during and after the war. What might I read that would give me some context?
Thank you for responding.
