Society Saturday - Antebellum Planters

The National Society Sons and Daughters of Antebellum Planters had its first marking today at Stagville Plantation near Durham, NC.

The society members trace their lineage to a planter who owned more than 500 acres of land prior to 1861.

President General Carla Whitehurst Odom chose to mark Stagville because it was one of the largest plantations in North Carolina.  It is one of the NC state historic sites and has an active ongoing mission to preserve the physical structures, the community stories, and the genealogy of the people, both free and enslaved who live there.
