To me it looks like a white man.
Yeah, I can see that too. I'm not sure what documentation the plantation has that says it's a slave marker, but it's been identified that way in a few places. Would be interesting to see if they had any other figural markers.
We have owned Chicora Wood Plantation for 32, thirtytwo years. This is definitely an Afro-American man.We have employed some of his descendants.Thisand talked with people who attended his burial. This hand made marker is in an exclusively slave and theirdescendants grave yard. He is, or was, Friday Heyward and was never a slave as he was born sometime afterthe emancipation, but was one of many descendants ofthe slaves who were first buried there.
