Daugherty_GreatAdoptionby Bettye Jane Daugherty

Drawing on her own family history, amateur genealogist Bettye Jane Daugherty has spun a fascinating and delightful story centered on four young indentured servants on a plantation near Jamestown, Virginia. Blessed with advantages and helping hands they never dreamed of as children, these four (and thousands like them) were, indeed, “adopted” into the social and business lives of the colonists who founded our country.
