Jan, all of the material presented is great. Now I am curious as to out of all of it who are the African Americans? I am doing research especially for my family. Their names are Crowel, House, and Heilig. Many of them came from the Gold Hill area. The Heiligs I am related to many of them live in or around Heiligtown. The Crowels or Crowells are a part of the House family. There are not many of that family because many of the HOuse were females and they married. Andrew Crowel and his wife Rachael were born in the 1830s; they had children: Eva Crowel born 1863, Martha born in 1866, William Andrew born in 1870, John Crowel born in 1872, and Love Hawes Crowel born in 1874. Martha married John House in 1886 and they had six children. After John died, Martha married a Stokes Ingram in 1913. He later died in 1931 and she in 1942.
So I am just putting that out to you as a part of the heritage.
