Re: KINLEY Ohio
In Response To: Re: KINLEY Ohio ()
Thomas Embree was a Quaker Lawyer who moved his family through a variety of southern states until they settled in Ohio. Sometimes they moved in response to the issue of slavery, sometimes just because better business opportunities arose in another state. He was the lawyer on a number of cases where slaves were suing current/or former slave owners over their status as free people of color. His family moved to OH in the early 1800's. The descendants of his family have provided us with all the documentation they have on their experience in Tennessee, Virginia, and Ohio.
Here is the information about the depositions...
The depositions were taken in Winchester, VA on Saturday July 5, 1800.
The witnesses deposed were:
All said Milly went to work for John Squibb, who was from Berkeley County, VA and then moved to Tennessee taking Milly with him.
That's all we know about this. We did try to get the original court proceedings but the court house in Tennessee stated that their records for that time period were destroyed in a fire.
