When we turn our hearts to our ancestors, something changes inside of us. We feel part of something greater than ourselves~Russell M. Nelson

Friend of Friends Friday~Releasing Pomphrey







On October 13, 1787, in Monk's Corner, St. John's Parish, South Carolina, John Ryan sold a slave named Pomphrey to Lawrence Campbell, Archibald Campbell, and David Benson of Charleston.

South Carolina Department of Archives and History, “Bills Of Sale, 1773-1843” database, Fold3 (http://Fold3.com accessed 05 Dec. 2018), entry for John Ryan, volume 2Q, pg. 590 (1778)



May Pomphrey be found and connected with his descendants.

Have you discovered the records of the enslaved while researching?

Please consider sharing the documents and transcribing their names so they may be remembered.

This post will be shared with the Slave Name Roll Project. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Helping you climb your family tree,
