The 1790 Estate of Henry Densler

January 6, 2020

Here’s where things get interesting. If Henry is the father of Barbara and Susannah and Michael and 3 other unnamed sons, and Barbara says that her beloved brother is Frederick, doesn’t that mean that Michael and Frederick are brothers? I think so, too.

I’ll come back and transcribe these. I have found a marvelous court case involving a woman named Selina Munroe who was formerly a slave of Mrs. Mary Densler. She is suing Leslie’s great-grandfather William Starr Basinger who was the custodian of an account which was assigned to him at the death of his great-aunt Mrs. Mary Pearson Densler.

The case went all the way to the Georgia state Supreme Court. Wow. I’m almost speechless.
