If you know the name that your ancestor was known by at the furnace, I can check runaway notices from that period, just in case he ran away at some point.
I am fascinated by the study of enslaved labor at iron furnaces and forges. Without it, the colonial forges would never have been able to keep up with the demand for ammunition and iron goods during the war for independence.
