  • HI Eve,
    I knw you last posted here in 2011, but if you happen to see this, I wanted to share information with you on William Spottswood Fontaine. He is my 4th great grandfather and I am researching him as I desire to learn more about my family's responsibility in the oppression of african-american people. I do have a slave schedule that shows he owned 47 slaves in 1850, but none are listed by name. I also have a letter from him listing two slaves named Nat and Billy. I am still trying to research more. Can you tell me any connections you have found to William Spottswood Fontaine? This is heartbreaking research to do, but I think it's important and worthy of investigation.
