  • Notes 
    • A newspaper article in the Topeka Daily Capital, dated 26 May 1941. In that paper 93-year old Armilda Benning Williams was being interviewed about her childhood as a slave. One paragraph of the article states that "...The now-aged woman was the first of fourteen children born to slave parents, who were owned by a Kentucky woman, Mrs. Jenny Lafferty Brasfield, ("Miss Jenny" to her "people"), who moved with her husband and slaves to Platte County, Missouri, some time before the Civil War. As soon as she was old enough, Armilda served as a housemaid in the big Northwestern Missouri farm home... Miss Jenny had been "raised" by Armilda's mother..." The article indicates that Armilda's grandfather was from Winchester, KY where he "... had saved enough money to buy the freedom of four of his eight children ... but the money to free the other four never came..." The article makes many references to events and locations that were near their home in Missouri. For instance, ".... she (Armilda) remembers hearing the sound of gunfire of the battle -- or skirmish -- of Bee Creek, which was near their Missouri home...."
