How do you keep up with it all, ancestors moving from place to place! A person definitely would need to be very organized. Like your ancestors, these out of Harris County, GA pretty much all knew one another, but somehow they managed to remain in Harris Co. well after slavery was over.

Ah, your investigative skills, so that explains it. Yes, research requires a lot of investigation and weighing of findings. You also have a really good way of explaining information, that's one reason why I thought you were a teacher.

Are those Granville petition records on-line? Just out of curiosity, I wonder if any of my Harris Co. ancestors are mentioned, although I have no record of any of them being FPOC, or indentured servants.

You said:

[here is my Reed in the middle of the bible belt out in the open being a polygomyst (sp?) with 2 sisters and no one bothered him???]

One reason nobody bothered him is because to quote James Brown, the god-father of soul, "It Was A Man's World", for the most part. Although I've come across of few petitions filed by wives against their husband for fathering children with their female slaves, in which this particular petition was approved by the judge. Can't recall if this married couple was a member of a church though.
