The Alabama Black McGruders of Sawyerville, Alabama–i.e. the descendants of Ned (1795-1853) and Moriah (1800-1880)–are putting together an anthology of the family history. The book will be published in 2021 & marketed on Amazon & elsewhere. All descendants of this family are welcome to submit obituaries, family biographies, or other information. Here is a draft outline, still a work in progress. This book builds on the work done by JR Rothstein & other family members in The Alabama Black McGruders, which can be downloaded from this site. Also see the African-American Magruder/McGruders Facebook page, which is for ALL black Magruders/McGruders (& related surnames), not just this lineage. If you want to contribute to the book, please contact JR & Yehuda Rothstein at jrr483(at)gmail.com, or Message them through the FB group.
