Sudy Greenwade who lived in Trigg County, Cadiz, Kentucky. She was impregnated by her owner's son who's last name was Greenwade.A daughter Frankie was born of this union.She was raised in the "big House" by her father's people and was taught to become skillful in using the spinning wheel, carding thread, sewing, dressmaking, etc.And because her father and his father were Doctors she was also skilled in midwifery.She rode side saddle through-out Kentucky delivering Babies.
Frankie became a Thomas, married to Tom Thomas and had 5 children Izora, Cora, Garland and two additional sons.Frankie lived her life out in Kentucky.
As far as we know, the Greenwade side of the family moved to Missouri.The Grand Daughter Lallie Silvers continued to communicate with this side of the family through letters while they were living in Missouri.
My mother has long told me about her mother's family history, but I have not been able to find them.Izora the daughter of Frankie Greenwade married Richard Jones in Kentucky as well.My mother the great-great Grand daughter of Frankie Greenwade has lived in Indianapolis and her parents moved there from Kentucky in the early 1900's.
I would appreciate any information concerning this family, and Greenwade history.
