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

Daddy was unhappy about his earnings on Mr. Jim Calhoun’s land and took Mama and me, a Fourth Generation Shaw girl, further south in Alabama to work the land

Hi everyone,

Daddy was unhappy because Bob and Jim Calhoun used his labor without paying him much money.

He completed plans with John May, and they moved our families, forty miles from Red Level, to another rural area in Covington County in search of earning a better living in return for his journeyman farm labor.

The years rolled on, Mama and I kept sharecropping, and Mama and I escaped north, where I earned an education, through hard labor.
