Can I ask...
Who was Thomas Embree and what were the names of the Virginians giving the despositions? What was the date or dates of the depositions?
"Thomas Embree sued several prominent whites in Tennessee alleging that whites who had migrated to Tennessee from Virginia, were unlawfully holding free blacks as slaves. Embree’s relatives believe Harry/Henry may be the son of one such woman. They were able to supply us with the deposition testimony of several Virginians who testified that one slave woman in particular was born free in Virginia."
