Slavery and the Census

Slavery and the Census
Originally uploaded by midgefrazel
Today, I began working on the last part of the last chapter in my Digital Storytelling book. I consulted with another family historian about the amazing story of discovery by a Rhode Island family. I am listening to the book on my iPod while I work on transcribing census records, eat strawberries (something I am not supposed to eat) and wonder if I can prove Isaac Dension's place in the Revolution (see his photo with me for inspiration?)

Isaac owned 2 slaves in this census. Is it not coincidence that this is what I chose to transcribe while I listen to a book about Slavery in Rhode Island?
