Levi Jordan
Plantation

Interview with Kenneth L. Brown

Summer, 1998

Ken Brown, in front of the plantation house, with some of the artifacts from his excavations.

Questions or Comments?
Please let us know!

 

Here are the topics we explored when I interviewed Ken in the summer of 1998. There are also other links to and from these topics to and from other places in the web site. These segments of our conversation have been edited by both Ken and myself, for brevity and flow. Well, we also cut out the peripheral stuff! However, we both think that these segments fairly represent the conversation we actually had.

On Hester Holmes' House

On whether the tenants continued to live on plantation grounds after the "abandonment"

On the original enslaved people who lived on the plantation

On the Curer's Cabin - how the interpretations developed

On the Praise House/Church

On Robert Furniss Martin and his relationship with the Jordan's and McNeill's

On Sallie McNeill's diary [includes ideas about the role that Claiborn Holmes may have had within the plantation community, and on the ways that people within the slave and tenant community may have empowered themselves].
