My Soul is a Witness. Boston: Beacon, Though often remembered for its prolific Underground Railroad activity, Floyd County has a historic pedigree that pre-dates the Revolutionary War victories of George Rogers Clark, who received the land in return for his successes.

Early census records confirm a definite black presence of farmers, laborers, river workers and household workers living in town and country settlements.
There was also an entrepreneurial class that, although comparatively small in number, enjoyed a degree of success for two or three generations. All resulted in what appears to be several settlements in Floyd County, most largely forgotten today. During their lifespan, the hamlets were home to a large free black population that would exert its spirit of independence long after slavery ended.
