My Ancestral Matriarch known as Harriett Eliza Evans "Paine" was born in Tennessee and carried to Texas by the slave owning Hardin Family; During Freedom's eve, and years after Emancipation Day, she continued to work her finger to the bone, whereby news of her Freedom as well as over 250,000 others enslaved in Texas was "delayed" until June 19, 1865, hence the celebration of Juneteenth in Texas and across America today.
