My GGG uncle’s family was born in slavery in Wake County, NC. His father was Mark Johns and his brothers were Jack and Washington John’s. Born from the union of an African slave (Elizabeth) with the plantation master John B. Johns. She was sold along with my great great great grandmother to another plantation owner after he married and his wife came to the plantation. The brothers remain under his umbrella until after the Civil War.
