The Durhams of Fairfield : an African American genealogy

"Robert L. Uzzel traced his wife Debra's roots to the slaves of the family of Robert Winfield Durham. Evidence indicates that Gobi, the patriarch of the Durham family, along with his wife Mary and five older sons, were slaves in Fairfield County, South Carolina and that Gobi died there. Mary gave birth to their youngest son, Isaac Durham, in 1860 near Fairfield, Texas, where their five older sons (who came with their masters to Desoto Parish, Louisiana) had settled by 1870. The six Durham brothers- Belton, Allen, Minor, Christopher, Anderson, and Isaac-lived east of Fairfield in the Butler community of Freestone County. Some of the descendants of these brothers still farm land in Butler, where Durham is a common surname. Debra Uzzel is a sixth generation descendant of Allen Durham. The author has conducted research in Fairfield County, South Carolina and DeSoto Parish, Louisiana as well as Freestone County, Texas."--Publisher's description

The African-American family in slavery and emancipation

"In The African-American Family in Slavery and Emancipation, Wilma Dunaway calls into question the dominant paradigm of the U.S. slave family. She contends that U.S. slavery studies have been flawed by neglect of small plantations and export zones and by exaggeration of slave agency. Using data on population trends and slave narratives, she identifies several profit-maximizing strategies that owners implemented to disrupt and endanger African-American families, including forced labor migrations, structural interference in marriages and child care, sexual exploitation of women, shortfalls in provision of basic survival needs, and ecological risks. This book is unique in its examination of new threats to family persistence that emerged during the Civil War and Reconstruction." -- p. [i].
