Notes

The enslaver Daniel Sayre stipulated that Moll, along with Gorda (GORD1), are to be sold, the proceeds being divided equally among his children.

He further stipulates that Moll "may have liberty to choose her master when sold," and that she may keep her clothes and her material possessions ("things"). It is unclear if Gorda and Moll are related.
