I'm compiling a biography of Baynard Hall b. in l798. His guardian
was Dr. Benjamin Rush of Philadelphia. His father who died in l80l
was Dr. John Hall. In the will records and Dr. Rush's records,
there is information on Daphne Peterson, a free black, emancipated by
Dr. Hall 20 years before his death in l80l. In her will, Daphne
signed in l822, she leaves property to Rosina ROLLEY and her
children (as well as to Dr. Hall's son Baynard whom I believe
she raised.) Daphne was baptized in the Schuylkill by a Baptist
minister, Rev. Wm. Rogers, D.D. Sept. 6, l803. I am not related
to any of these people, merely the author of a biography of
Baynard Hall, a white educator, author, clergyman. It appears
Daphne died ca l823.
