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, he may have been indentured to Mehetable Huntting until the date July 4, 1827, when slavery was legally abolished in New York State. He may also have been free born, but it is unclear from this record.
