Fair Grove’s forgotten child

Today marks the end of Black History month. Over the course of the last four weeks, millions of American students — from all ethnicities — took an in-depth look at the achievements of black Americans, pausing to contemplate the vital role of African Americans in U.S. history. However, in the midst of celebrating the lives and influence prominent African-Americans have had on today’s history, for many Southerners there lies the dark reality born from the human atrocities of the slave trade and the historical trauma slavery left on a nation where no town, not even Thomasville, was spared. In this article, master genealogist and Thomasville native Randy Hepler shares his own personal journey to uncovering the truth behind his distant ancestors' connection to slavery and to a child named Miranda, whose father was her mother’s master.
