Description

In 1775, Buell recorded "my negro child Paul" died. In 1784, his "Negro man" purchased a pair of shoes from Hedges. In 1796, Rev. Buell paid "fifty pounds of lawful money of New York" to David Mulford for "my negro Servant man called Gree." We believe that Buell may have been master to seven enslaved
persons, if not more. His slave Peggy Negro is recorded in the town records as hired to sweep the church from about 1802 to 1808.
