Notes

Because this child of African heritage whose name is unrecorded was born after July 4, 1799, when the Law of Gradual Emancipation was enacted, she may have been indentured to Martha Wooley until the date July 4, 1827, when slavery was legally abolished in New York State. She may also have been free born, but it is unclear from this record.
