Looking for info on Thomas Key of pointe coupee la. brn abt 1790,d.1827, had children with Edy / Edith Norflet /Norfleet. children were magdeleen, lucinda, oliver, nelson, and walter, as listed in thomas' will. also thomas' mother was listed as susanah living in virginia.
edith was emancipated by thomas and was housekeeper and mistress.
in ediths pps.1839 after death children has last name of key, also included two minor children who became known by last name of howard after being put under tutorship of nathan howard supposedly familiar with thomas and edith.
any and all info would be helpful on Thomas Key, Edith Norflet, Nathan Howard.
