I have ishams will and census death and a pic of him in a gedcom given to me by a researcher. i know he had slaves before the civil war not too many but some. wondering what type of house he had , how much land he farmed and if there are any picsof it and does it still exsist. and what the address was. wonder what crops he grew and are there any pics existing of his daughter martha c oneal moseley wife of john green moseley. or pics of her mother. also wondering if any of the descendents of his ex slaves have come forward during the course of their family research and what if anything has become known from them about the times their ancestors were with the oneals. thank you for any assistance. i am trying to come to an accurate understanding of what isham and family' s life was like so i can explain when people assume the gone with the wind type of lifestyle. i dont think they were wealthy like that but i dont know details.

thank you.
