Jerry Burgess

My 3 times great grandfather Jerry Burgess was born a slave about 1825 in Alabama. Jerry married Mary Johnson in 1866 just one year after slavery ended. He went from being property to owning property, farming on his own land and raising his own livestock. Jerry Burgess is party of my black history.
