My Parnell surname is traced back to an african slave, Pompey. Tradition is that he and members of his family was lured into a ship at french Morocco Africa. They were promised Jobs in America. The ship docked in Beaufort, South Carolina, USA where they were sold into slavery. Later they were purchased by a softhearted white slave master, that lived in North Florida ,whose surname was Parnell.
Any Information concerning Pompey will be greatly appreciated. Please email me.
