Quaker Polly Felts

Polly Felts was my 4x great-grandaunt. In 1804, she and her husband Shadrack moved from their tobacco plantation in Virginia to Ohio. They, like many Quakers in their part of the tidewater, freed their slaves and could no longer maintain their agricultural endeavors without them; the result was a Quaker exodus into Stark, Columbiana and Mahoning Counties, Ohio.

I did this little sketch (5 x 8") using a #2 Ticonderoga pencil.
