Re: MD - Researching Free Persons before 1850

Has anyone researched FPOC in Maryland prior to 1790? My ancestor, Deborah Payne was a free child kidnapped and sold as an indenture in Virginia around1779. She was "discharged" on May 23, 1787. I found the information in the Pittsylvania County VA record books and the Library of Virginia, but I don't know in what Maryland county her family lived or the names of her parents.
