From the WPA Slave   Narratives:
  Charity Jones
  Age 84
  Friars Point, Mississippi
  November 17, 1938

  “My mother, Charoletter Williams, was a slave of Mr. Frank Williams of Deeson,   Miss., Bolivar County. Frank Williams’ father gave my mother and her family to   Frank. My father and mother had been separated when they were sold to   different owners. My mother’s owner wouldn’t sell my mother to my father’s   owner, and my father’s owner wouldn’t sell him to my mother’s owner. So our   family never did get together again since I was a child. My father died in   slavery.
