Update to yesterday’s post…

… about Jourdon Anderson, the former slave who wrote that charming letter to his old master. Jason Kottke of Kottke.org did some poking around on ancestry.com and a few other places, and has compiled what he’s learned in an interesting post about Mr. Anderson’s later life in Ohio.

About Shala Howell

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.
