Photo discovery leads to slave ancestor

Earlene Campbell-Coleman recently received a photo of a former slave who turned out to be her great-great-great grandfather. Frank Campbell was among 272 slaves sold by Jesuit priests in 1838, to plantations in Louisiana, to help save Georgetown University. The photo of Campbell was the first picture of the slaves that genealogists have found.
