BLUEFOOT, BLUFORD family
Here's a new family I've been searching for the origins of for some time and have just added to my site:
1. Sarah Bluford, born say 1763, had been bound to Matthew Green until the age of thirty-one when she complained to the Lancaster County court on 18 January 1781 that she Green sold her to Rawleigh Hazard. (Therefore, she was the daughter of a white woman). The court ordered that Hazard give bond not to remove her from the county [Orders 1778-83, 71]. She was a "Mo" taxable in Gloucester County in 1813 and "mulo" taxable on 5 head of cattle 1814 [PPTL 1782-1815]. She was probably the mother of
i. Thomas Blufoot/ Blueford, born say 1786, a "Mulatto" taxable in Gloucester County from 1802 to 1819, listed with his unnamed wife in 1813 [PPTL 1782-1815].
ii. Francis, a "Mulatto" taxable in Gloucester County from 1804 to 1819
iii. James, a "Mulatto" taxable in Gloucester County from 1811 [PPTL 1782-1815].
