Wellington and Lizzie lived next door to Jerry and Cornelia 
on James Island in the 1920 Census.

In 1854, Wellington White, Aida’s father, after the death of his father, 
Pappy White, moved to Stile Bee Plantation to become the overseer 
and foreman there. Prince (Pappy) White was of Indian heritage. 
He was the overseer at Seabrook Plantation, then brought 
from Wadmalaw Island to slave market in Charleston. 
Sons were sold to different plantations - Prince Jr 
(1867- sold to Grimball Plantation (I question this, 
because this was after slavery!).

These four pages are an extract from Mr. Frazier’s Illustrated Book – James Island: Descendants of Slaves From the Plantations.

These pages are taken from the excellently researched book: “James Island – Stories From Slave Descendants” by Eugene Frazier Sr., published by History PRESS, Charleston, SC.
