    I just love these photos! Thank you so much for sharing. Does anyone have an authentic list of who was also in the boat with him? I wonder because my father’s family is from that area.

    Jennie Smalls born in 1898 St Johns Island, SC whose father and brother were William Smalls are my grandchildren’s 2 x grandmother, 3x grandfather & 2x great uncle, respectively. Where did the Smalls name originate?

    In 1992 while visiting my maternal, paternal grand aunt Edna Smalls-Washington in Savannah Georgia, she informed me that another relative had a large framed document with the signatures of important men. One of the signers was a family relative Robert Smalls. That document was thrown. My aunt Edna said, “Robert Smalls was a relative on my fathers’ side. My mother’s name Margaret A. Smalls-Wormly, her father Edward Smalls, her aunt Edna Smalls-Washington.
