They had four children together. Kingsley freed Anna in 1811, when she turned 18, and gave her responsibilities for his plantations in East Florida. ---------- For 25 years, Kingsley's unusual family lived on Fort George Island in modern-day Jacksonville, where Anna managed a large and successful planting operation. After gaining freedom, she was given a Spanish land grant for 5 acres and held 12 slaves. She later was awarded a land grant of 350 acres by the Spanish government.
