Slave Narrative of William Neightgen

Person Interviewed: William Neighten
Location: Dade County, Florida

William Neighten gave his address as 60th Street, Liberty City. He was only a baby when freedom came, but he too, “stayed on” a long time afterward.

He did not know his real name, but he was given his Massy’s name.

“Don’t ask me how much work I had to do. Gracious! I used to plow and hoed a lot and everything else and then did’nt do enough. I got too many whippings besides.”
