Biographical Notes

Judah had at least four children: Dorcas (#1693), [Isabella] (#1694), a son [name unknown] (#1695), and a daughter [name unknown] (#1696). When Corey died in 1754, she was passed as chattel to his widow. The relationship between Judah and the five other enslaved servants mentioned in Corey's will is unknown, but one, Dorcas, may be Judah's daughter (#1693).
