Description

The first half of Tapestry consists of a historical overview of African-Americans in southeastern Connecticut from
1680 to 1865. The authors focus on the arrival of blacks in Connecticut, the African-American family, and the role played by African-Americans in the Revolutionary and Civil wars. Much of the action takes place in the towns of Groton, East Haddam, New London, Chatham, and Hebron. In the second part of the volume, Dr. Rose and Mrs. Brown produce, as illustrations, genealogical
sketches of the following African-American families: Beman, Boham, Bush, Freeman, Hallan, Hyde, Jacklin, Jackson, Lathrop, Magira, Mason, Moody, Peters, Quash, Rogers, and Wright. While readers will discover information in a number of these genealogies that is repeated in the authors’ book Black Roots, also published by Clearfield Company, researchers should check the accounts in Tapestry for embellishments.
