“One of your African ancestor was born from an Akan and Ewe union. The other one is from a Fon village called Bokobenoua. Herein is a bit of history, which shall explain some of the events that transpired with respect to your ancestor being taken into slavery.

In the 18th century the Aláàfin (King) of Oyo in Nigeria and the queen of England signed a trade agreement. This agreement included the selling of young men and women to her to be enslave in the Americas. In the neighboring Kingdom of Dahomey were your Ancestors are from, King Agadja wanted to end slavery and went to war against the Yoruba kingdom of Oyo. The Dahomey Kingdom was defeated by the kingdom of Oyo and In 1730, Dahomey became a tributary of Oyo. The peace terms included the payment of yearly tribute of young men and women;
Your ancestors were included in the men and women sent in the annual tribute paid to the King of Oyo.
