The incredible story of this home begins in the 1830s when William Fambro, who had grown up as an orphan in Tennessee, moved to the river town of Cahawba in Alabama. Shortly after, he began practcing law and bought land there by 1837. By 1840, he owned lots 9-12 in town and built this home on Lot 11.
Some histories remark that William may have constructed the house using two older structures dating from the Capitol Era (1819-1826). He and his wife Elizabeth would live in the home with their two minor wards from the time of their marriage in 1842 until 1855. The home would change hands a few more times before Ezekiel Arthur came to own it in 1894.
The story of Ezekiel Arthur is a fascinating one. He was born into slavery and was bought and sold three times. His name was changed each time, as he was further separated from his family, finally ending up at a plantation in Alabama.
After Emancipation, Ezekiel traveled across the South trying to find his mother and sisters who had been sold away. He was successful in reuniting with them- then they came to Cahawba to settle where he bought this house for $2,000 in 1894.
Heartbreak is a difficult period for someone to go through. @najwazebian perfectly puts out the stormy and intense feelings of loss and heartbreak while soothing the soul with a hint of sunshine and inspiration, self love and self discovery in “The Nectar of Pain”. Loved reading the book and most importantly the feels of it. Would highly recommend!
