One never thinks of families as a slave but if your ancestors were FULL blood, they may very well have been slaves to escape the abuse of the inner town populations. The land owners provided room. board. food and they had very little need to go into town. They were honorable people and in todays society, what they did back then was keep their land owners from starving. So there was no dishonor in slavery. One hand fed the other. They just tacked on the name ‘slave’ . Be proud of your heritage.
