December Harvest

        Ada was a feminist. She came from a slave-holding family. Our family has agreed to make the document available "warts and all."
        This page is dedicated to Ary (last name unknown), slave of the Foster family into which my great-grandmother was born. We mourn Ary's loss of freedom. We hope some day to learn more about her and to meet her relatives.
