This journey back through time that began in Chicago, Illinois in August of 1984, has taken me to Goochland County, Virginia, Kalamazoo, Michigan and changed my permanant address from Chicago to Memphis, Tennessee.
The documents you see in this book came from the Courthouses and archives of Goochland County, Virginia and Memphis, Tennessee. They were used as a frame of reference in order to write my biographical novel, FreeJoe: A Story of Faith, Love and Perseverance.
Many of the pictures in this book are of family members and people who played a role in the life of Joseph H. "FreeJoe" Harris and make up the characters in FreeJoe: A story of Faith, Love and Perseverance.
This book will show you the unusual accomplishments of Joseph H. "FreeJoe" Harris during the period of slavery and beyond. Perhaps these revelations will assist you in doing your family research.
