The following bible entry comes from the book, "Bible and Family Records of Barren County, Kentucky Vol 2" by Sandra K. Laughery Gorin, page 272 titled "Slemmons Bible." This book is still for sale by Sandi Gorin and can be found at her website found here. The entry states:
"Bible belonged to John Crenshaw Slemmons and now is in possession of Mrs. R. I . Taylor, Edmonton Road, Glasgow, Ky.I found John C Slemmons in the 1860 Slave Census for Metcalfe County, Kentucky on Ancestry.com. It shows two female slaves, who we know to be Eliza and Martha Francis, listed as being owned by him. My ancestor, Asher Slemmons is listed seven entries above, entered as Ashel.
Record of a black woman Eliza Huffman, a slave of John Crenshaw Slemmons:
Woman Eliza born Sept 1838.
Her first child Martha Francis was born January 24th 1859.
Her second child Mariah Catherine was born August 2nd 1860.
Her third child James Preston was born April 8th 1862.
Her fourth child William Right was born May 3rd 1863.
Her fifth child was born January 26th 1865 her named was Amanda Elizabeth.
Her sixth child Leathy Jane was born Jul 16th 1868
Cageniel Alexander Huffman seventh child was born Jul 2nd 1869
Hulet Huffman and Eliza was married December 26th 1853."
Here is the family in the 1870 Sartain's Precinct, Barren County, Kentucky Census found on Ancestry.com
I continued to follow Eliza forward and found her and one son in the 1900 Summer Shade, Metcalfe County, Kentucky Census.
I hope this information is useful to someone that is looking for this family. I have been actively researching a co-worker's lineage, who happens to be African American. I found that researching other nationalities has helped expand the knowledge that I have on researching in general.
Hope you enjoyed, glad you stopped by and please come back again ;)
