My Alabama Shaw Family on My Father’s Side From 1861-2014

Granddaddy loved his siblings born to his mother who was freed from slavery, in 1861, and the conversation shows that he became an investor in more land to help Uncle Charlie Moore, his half-sibling, born to Great Grandmother Julie, to keep the land in the family

Hi everyone,

Granddaddy Adam loved his siblings born to his mother, Great Grandmother Julie.

He, especially loved Great Uncle Charlie Moore and, like Granddaddy, he was a tall man, but his complexion was dark. When they posed for pictures, together, they looked nonsensical and well-dressed, and I cherish my picture of those two men, though I never met Great Uncle Charlie Moore.

Yes, Granddaddy and Great Uncle Charlie Moore did business together. Great Uncle Charlie Moore owned fifty-eight-acres of land in Evergreen, but had trouble making payments. To help him out, Granddaddy bought twenty acres and a house from him. As a result, Granddaddy owned sixty-one acres of land and a house in Evergreen and Great Uncle Charlie Moore continued struggling to pay for the reduced amount of land, thirty-eight-acres, he owned. As a result, Granddaddy bought ten of those acres in Evergreen to keep the land in the family and, also, help Uncle Charlie Moore own twenty-eight debt free acres, bringing Granddaddy’s land ownership to seventy-one acres in Evergreen.

Granddaddy taught grandiose lessons, for every generation, which are to love your siblings and half-siblings, if they deserve it, work with your family members,-your best friends, and achieve good success together.

In this conversation, remember that, if two people are capable, in conversation and through work, they can be stronger together than solo.
