Bill Marshall, a white plantation owner and a slave girl named Ann give birth to a son they named George Marshall. Ann did not care for Bill Marshall who evidently did not care for her either except for forced sex. However, Bill Marshall care for his son George and treated him better than his son's mother Ann and others slaves. George Marshall would become a house boy and carriage driverfor his father Bill. George would bring desserts and other tasty foods (that were served in the Master's home) to his mother Ann who had to remain in the slave quarters where the food was meager and plain.
