    Latraiavice Maner shares some of her family's history at Groten Plantation: My grandfather, Charles Maner, Jr., sharecropped there and so did his father Charles Maner, Sr. My great-great grandfather and grandmother were slaves there. Charles Maner, Sr. was burned alive in his home because he worked for this family his entire life and they promised him that piece of land for his family. Rather than keep their word, he was killed. His wife and son came back from church at Pipe Creek one Sunday and found the house burned to the ground. My grandfather became the man of the house at the age of twelve. Silas & Henry Maner, Coneilius & Margaret Maner, and Clysa & Harry Hopkins are buried there."
