Their Mother, then a widow, had a bakery. She sold hardtack to the Spanish Govt. to stock ships when they sailed from here. She had those outdoor clay ovens in the back yard and it's said she had 2 small slave boys who stomped the dough to knead it. The Archaeologist from UWF did a study of the site their house was on prior to site becoming a new parking garage. They found some old shackels and the remains of a couple of the ovens buried under the concrete that was a parking lot for years. They didn't know the history of that site and I talked to one of the lead Arch's on it and was able to provide documentation so it's now an occasional display at the department's building at the University. I know it sounds awful. I'm not really pleased to know it but it was very much a way of life back then. Again, though there are some who would love to denounce the way of life, it was then still under the flag of Spain. It wasn't a US Territory then. Slavery was universal, and it still happening. One needs to understand the entire picture before they point fingers. Lot of short sighted people on some things it seems.
