When genealogist and peonage researcher, Antoinette Harrell, shared her next finding with genealogist Robin Foster, she was astounded. She came to the conclusion that not only do many peonage records exist, but the record-types are also quite varied.  

The latest records that Harrell shared which she unearthed in the National Archives on one of her many research trips happen to further reveal the scope of peonage particularly in Georgia. The letter below was addressed to President Warren G. Harding notifying him of an article in the Columbia Sentinel, whose editor was a Georgia senator, disclosed the news that 65,000 girls were lost or went missing between 1920 and 1921. The second letter acknowledges the receipt of the first letter to the White House.
