One thought on “Effingham Plantation”

  1. My ancestor, Betty, was a slave residing on Effingham Forest plantation; then owned by J.H Norton. She was mention in the Norton papers as “black Betty”. I would like to know if these houses still exist; and, where can i find more information about Effingham Forest plantation?
