The 1790 Estate of Henry Densler

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.

    Always the consummate Historian! My impetus to keep researching when it feels futile.
