Carrie Youngblood was born in Troy, Alabama abt 1875.
In 1910, Carrie Youngblood was found residing in Union Springs, AL with her children: Lorenzo, Junior, Alberta and William. At this time she was living next door to my great-grandfather, Orange Thomas. His wife Peggy died about 1905 when my grandmother, Hannah, was a little girl.
Eventually, Orange and Carrie Youngblood would begin a relationship. Carrie would raise Orange's youngest children: my grandmother Hannah, and her brothers Hampton Boyd and Orange, Jr.
My mother, Carrie B. Cariller was delivered by Carrie Youngblood on October 8, 1913 and became her namesake.
Orange died, December

meet a Reverend Slaughter who robbed her of money, land, livestock and
other possessions left to her.
