for accessing the Bladen County African American Genealogy Site. This site
is dedicated to the struggle of African Americans who have paved the way for future
generations. Its purpose is to document the names and faces of those who were
enslaved and also those considered free slaves in order to preserve the remnants
of history. It also serves as a medium to preserve family stories, journals,
bibles, and family trees, in order to capture the influence that African Americans
have in Bladen County. Even if you are a novice genealogy researcher to
the most advanced, we welcome all contributions and have provided helpful links
to get you started in your journey.. SANKOFA
thousands of Black families get together to celebrate their reunions. Reunions
are a time of laughter, getting together, and uniting since the end of slavery.
We celebrate any family reunions or class reunions in the Bladen
County area, whether yearly, or just getting together informally.
Listing of African Americans Lynched in North Carolina
Elizabethtown, May 3, 1892
100 Years of Lynching, Ralph Ginzburg, Black Classic Press; Lynching in the New
South, W. Fitzhugh Brundage, University of Illinois Press
was built in 1781 in Carver's Creek Township by Revolutionary War Patriot General
Thomas Brown. General Brown was married to first Sarah Bartram. Sarah fell
ill and passed away in 1779. His second wife was Lucy Bradley Brown, who lived
for a remarkable 84 years.
Brown owned approximately 30 slaves in 1790, one of which was probably connected
to this researcher.
It is assumed
that he was probably one of the more wealthier land owners in the Carver's Creek
region of Bladen County. General Brown was the owner to several plantations: Walker's
Bluff, Drunken Run, and Sedgefield, to name a few.
