TEXAS SLAVE SEARCHER

My "quest" on this blog is to chronicle my search for all members of my paternal and maternal family lines both originating in Texas before it was independent of Mexico. Being an African American means that search will include scaling the "The Wall of Slavery". In order to track the slaves I must track the slave owners. This will reveal both legacies....
The search will lead through many small and infinite places in Texas and eventually BACK to the motherland of Africa... the GOAL is to NAME the slaves not just count them. When the slavers took away the names they enabled the African's humanity to be suppressed making their (the enslavers) utter cruelty acceptable The "naming process" restores their humanity...
