William Ellison Jr, born April Ellison,(C. April, 1790 - 5 December 1861) was a free negro (former slave) who achieved great success in business eventually becoming one of the largest property owners, including slaves, and certainly the wealthiest Negro property owner in South Carolina. His success is more remarkable as it occurred in the antebellum period of US history when slavery in the United States of America was still legal. During the American civil war he was also a supporter of the Confederate States of America. April was the name given to him at birth as a slave indicating the month he was born, a common practice at the time. On manumission, June 8, 1816, he changed his name to William Ellison Jr. William Ellison was April's owner who agreed to free him.[1]

How the hell can a black man in those times own white slaves when he was supposedly brought to America to be a slave and was considered less than whites? They like to teach in schools that ALL blacks was slaves too. Hmmm this doesnt make any sense. Seems like people trying to get the heat off themselves for slavery.

The first blacks were brought from African to Jamestown, Va.in the mid 1600's as indentured servants along with whites from England and Ireland. They were usually held for seven years and then allowed to pay off their debt. The salves form Africa were sold by African slave holders ( yes there were slaves in Africa first.) Many became freed from their servitude after that time and learned trades and eventually went on to acquire land... read the life of William Ellison...from S. Carolina. It is all in the history books

Whites have written things down in HIS - STORY to benefit HIM; as well as took away / REMOVED things in HIS / WRITTEN / STORY / to benefit HIM and for those who look like him.

They lie and ALWAYS have THROUGH OUT history; so with ANYTHING dealing with 'HISTORY' and White people had ANYTHING to do with it...I (DON'T) believe a single solitary WORD OF IT./smh

ABSOLUTELY.....doesn't make sense right; I would even go as far as to say that 'Molottoes'(half black, half white) which they were called then- who had black slave mothers who got raped by slave masters and other white males; sometimes could PASS for white people more so than looking like a black person; COULD POSSIABLY HAD SLAVES.

I can even understand that, but a TOTALLY black looking person; absolutely not, ABSOLUTELY NOT. See,....this is what I mean when I speak on how white people LOVE to change and re-arrange HISTORY; just so that THEY could look good.

Whites ALWAYS, wants to come up 'smelling like a (BED OF ROSES).

The only thing that doesn't make ANY sense Darline is that EVEN WITH the age of the internet your indoctrinated ignorance on this taboo topic STILL abounds. You seriously need to READ and INVESTIGATE BEFORE you allow your prejudice to do all the talking.

America’s First Chattel Slave Owner Was A Black Man named Anthony Johnson
In 1651 he held 250 acres and five black indentured servants. In 1654, it was time for Anthony to release John Casor, a black indentured servant. Instead Anthony told Casor he was extending his time. Casor left and became employed by the free white man Robert Parker.

Anthony Johnson sued Robert Parker in the Northampton Court in 1654. In 1655, the court ruled that Anthony Johnson could hold John Casor indefinitely. The court gave judicial sanction for blacks to own slave of their own race. IRONICALLY, Casor became the first permanent slave and Johnson the first slave owner in America.

You are aware that Black Africans are RESPONSIBLE for SELLING their rivals
to the Jewish Slave Traders? See : Henry Lousi Gates, Jr
Harvard University History Professor, talk about this topic
Black Slaves Black Masters on C-Span. AND “The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews” Louis Farrakhan.

You are aware that MANY African Nations/tribes STILL ALLOW SLAVERY TODAY?

You've obviously have watched one too many kosher Hollywood Fictional movies
made to incite racial hatred. It certainly worked on you. I hope you can let your indoctrinated prejudice go long enough to bother to investigate REAL Facts. See my other comments.

As Bill April Ellison's descendant i was always ashamed and troubled by his legacy and the history of our family. I could never understand why Africans and their offspring were enslaved Until I read this page. Slavery probably would have pushed you to use your brains. This sums it up for you Black folks " A Mind is a Terrible Thing".
