In Response To: Simpson and Goes in PA ()
I have done some research on the Goe family line;
Henry aka Harry Goe dob: 1783
Also I found in The Goe Family book the following on page 3, under Generaton II;
2. MARGARET GOE, b. 19 Aug 1727, Prince George's Co, MD m.before 1762, Richard Hutton. In the 1790 censusof Fayette co., Washiington Twp., PA we find Margaret Hutton: one freewhite female...head of family; seven other free persons; and 24 slaves.
In her will she mentions the following listed as 7) My slaves.
I want to research the slave records more thoroughly. When I do, I will fill you in on what I find.
Also, I'm guessing you know that George Washington had land in Washington or Fayette county and had a Gilbert Simpson running the place. He also had some slaves working the land.
I don't know if there are any tax records or something showing the slaves names. That would be interesting.
Anyway, will fill you in on what I find.
