John Golladay

African American


John is mentioned in a letter to Davidella Golladay by H. Guy:

Grenada, July 1858

John is getting along slow with his vegetables. There is so many that - is selling.
......
......

I saw John yesterday. He told me to tell you howdy and says he wants to see you all very much.


John is also mentioned in a letter to Martha Golladay from Eliza Guy:

Grenada, 20 Aug 1858

John is getting along finely in drying fruit - The apples are falling and he is drying them.

So it would appear that John was responsible for growing and processing the food for the plantation.
