Description


The book offers a historical account of the Gumby ancestors to the year 1680. Probing through historical records, wills, book chapters, early census reports and other documents; the author links her family among the 500 slaves freed by slave-owner Robert Carter III in 1792 Virginia. The manumission released her Gumby family from slavery seventy-one years prior to Abraham Lincoln's freeing of slaves in 1863.
