Figure 17: Archie Waiters with grandparents' picture

Alex Gregg’s grandson, Archie Waiters, spent his childhood in his grandfather’s home and heard the old man tell his stories over and over-- stories of his life at Mars Bluff in slavery.  When Waiters repeated the stories of his grandfather, he gave us a picture of what life was like in a hewn-timber cabin at Mars Bluff during slavery.  (Photo 1984)
