Most of the people are real people like Lydia Carruthers Stewart, Alexander Stewart, Judge Gaston, the barbers and the children. Life in a freedom-loving town is shown through the former slaves' eyes. John Carruthers Stanly was like the biblical Onesimus, and then his Christian owner, Philemon. John freed slaves who were capable of supporting themselves just as he had been freed. His former master tried to help other freed men and even slaves by asking their church to educate the two groups. Between the years 1808 and 1824, J. C. Stanly became the wealthiest man in Craven County with three plantations, about thirty properties, and 163 slaves.
